Doll Update!

My son thinks she looks like Gollum from Lord of the Rings. Lol! He wonders why all my doll faces are kind of creepy. I don't know...that's the way they turn out. I do like creepy, though. Once her hair is on she'll look completely different. Maybe I'll give her a hat and some earrings and a fancy scarf...

New Jewelry!

I finished painting and varnishing the doll face, hands and feet yesterday. Tonight I work on the body and putting everything together. I'm not sure how she will be dressed at this point. I'm thinking vintage; I want her to look like she's been around for years and years. No name or story yet either.

A Doll in the Making!

I sculpted the head, feet and hands for an art doll  over the weekend using polymer clay. I baked the pieces in the oven and today I will paint the face and make her come alive. Once the doll is done, I'm hoping to put it in my Etsy shop.
This is Alice and she is naughty. She talks in the library and has to constantly be shushed by the librarian.

Alice is unfinished!

Hope you're enjoying the weekend! :)

I'm Back!

I decided that I didn't like my new blog as much as this one so I came back! This one is much easier to use and loads much faster.

Dad is still in the hospital. He has pneumonia now and the doctor said it would be two to three months before he will be able to go home.

I've been sick and haven't been in the studio for a couple of weeks until yesterday. I spent the afternoon working on an aceo for my dear friend, Stacy. I filled some Etsy orders, as well. Today I spend the afternoon in the studio again. Happy day! :)
