With yet another remake of Ben-Hur, Sue decided to restore this French doll head, using 1926 newspaper movie ads (Ben Hur among them). This is a brilliant creation!
The doll head is very large, was very misshaped, and the 1926 newspaper page was stuffed inside the head. The size of the head made it impractical to make a body with arms and legs. So, Sue created a doll with a "body on a stick" or a base similar to a hat stand.
The fabric Sue used was calico, and she ironed on freezer paper for stiffness. Then, she pulled off the freezer paper after the newspaper transferred to the calico. With a few added embellishments, the doll head became a unique boudoir doll item.
