Wow! What a absolutely wonderful time I have doing these tags! Day 12's tag was so cool. So many different mixed mediums!! I kept going thinking I was done and there was just another step..and another. LOL!
I learned the coolest thing yesterday from Susan over at Archivers. The little fractured doll's that Tim has recreated for his line and used in Day 12's Tag are actually called Frozen Charlotte Dolls. If the doll was a boy it would have been called a Frozen Charlie. Here's what Wikipedia says:
The Frozen Charlotte doll is made in the form of a standing, naked figure moulded all in one piece. These dolls may also be seen described as pillar dolls, solid chinas or bathing babies. The dolls ranged in size from under an inch to 18 inches plus. The smallest dolls were sometimes used as charms in Christmas puddings. Smaller sizes were very popular for putting in doll's houses. Occasionally versions are seen with a glazed china front and an unglazed stoneware back. This enabled the doll to float on its back when placed in a bath.
They are also made in bisque, and can come in white, pink-tinted, or, more rarely, painted black. Some rare examples have moulded chemises. Male dolls (identified by their boyish hairstyles) are called Frozen Charlies.
Of course alot of folks find these creepy...maybe, but how cool is this awesome little piece of history!
Here is the last tag....
Thanks for looking!
