|Jaelece, a polymer clay doll is seen in her original photo from 2010.|
Jaelece, an 11-inch folk art doll is made of polymer clay. She is permanently attached to a vintage alphabet block that bears the first initial of her name. Kept on a shelf of my personal desk in front of a pencil holder, while reaching for a pen or pencil, I have accidentally bumped Jaelece on more than one occasion causing her to tumble to the desktop or onto the floor. Recently she fell one time too many causing the tip of one of her pigtails to break.
|Jaelece's new pigtail (fatter than the original) has been air dried and ready for painting.|
I used air drying clay to fashion another pigtail for her. After it dried, I painted it as well as the rest of her molded hair.

|Jaelece and sister, Patsy|
She's ready to be placed back on the shelf with her sister Patsy. Now, however, to prevent future falls, the pencil holder is in front of the girls.
