fundraised. A committee of volunteers built dossiers on the first ladies, gathering everything one could possibly note about a woman's physical appearance.
She fired Mrs. Mead's face in a kiln after each step, so her fingerprints wouldn't stick.
If Colorado could do it, why not try it in Wyoming?
Green has poured all of the first ladies. She made her first doll nearly 30 years ago, and when the first lady doll project began in 1993, Green submitted sample dolls and a proposal and won the contract.

The first lady's arms, legs, torso and head were poured from liquid porcelain, already the shade of her skin, into separate plaster molds.
Mrs. Mead's delicate porcelain body was let to dry, cleaned and hot fired in a kiln at 2,269 degrees. Her skin was then buffed smooth, and elastic was later strung through her body to attach her limbs.
