Hello again! It’s been a while since my last post so time to catch up. Oops!! I have several new dolls to share pictures of, as well as my Mardi Gras doll that was shown in the August/Sept/Oct edition of Art Doll Quarterly magazine (but I will save that for another post). I hope everyone has had a wonderful summer so far. Mine has been quite memorable. My husband and I took a road trip through New Mexico, Arizona and California. I absolutely love the desert, mountains and our time relaxing on the beach. We also had a short mini vacation in Pensacola, FL. Being next to the water really gave me the inspiration to create a few mermaid pieces. (I believe I only sculpted two in my entire doll making days.)
The purple girl has already been sold however you can find the other one in my Etsy shop. She is currently my last remaining doll for sale. As always, layaway is available. Message me for details on how to split up your payments. 🙂
My newest art doll is now available in my Etsy shop.
Her body is fabric stuffed with poly fill and her arms and face are sculpted in clay. She measures 24.5″ long and 12.5″ seated.
Follow my Facebook page for more of my dolls and WIP! Since Mardi Gras is almost here in the South, I decided to make a few fun dolls inspired by it. Pictures coming soon.
I am finally getting back to working on new dolls. Lately I have been so busy with commission costumes that I had to slow down on my sculpting but I am near completion on my last commission…..just in time to start some pieces for halloween (my favorite time of the year!)
My grim reaper is now completed and for sale in my Etsy shop! Like all my dolls, she is 100% handmade without use of any molds. I have hand sculpted all the little skulls and details on her head and chest. I use cernit clay (which I have found is the strongest of all polymers) and she is built over a carefully constructed wire based armature. She is painted in acrylics, and varnished for color protection. She stand about 15″ high and is not posable. Her eyes were also handmade by me.
For more of my works please visit my art page where I love to share my progress of each doll.
“When her loved one tragically died several days before their wedding, she couldn’t bear the thought of living alone. The grief began to consume her and eventually she took her own life in hopes of being reunited with him. However, years went by and she searched and searched. To this day, she is frantically still searching among the dead for her long lost love.”
I decided to start on my halloween inspired dolls early this year, since I tend to wait until the last minute. “Lady in White” is now for sale in my Etsy shop.
She is approximately 19″ long and 11″ when seated
She is completely handmade without the use of any molds. She is constructed of Premier Air Dry Clay over a strong sturdy wire armature. She is sculpted, sanded, gessoed and then painted in acrylic paints and varnished with a light gloss varnish to protect her color.
Her arms, legs, hands, and feet are all ribbon jointed and lightly posable. Her head can very slightly move. Her hair is made of black viscose and is permanently styled and attached to her head. It has been adorned with gathered lace, white roses, pearls and a white skull. Her handmade dress is constructed of lace, satin, pearls and little white bows. Each pearl has been individually sewn onto her dress.
New painting listed in my Etsy shop. Inspired by Ondine, one of my OOAK art doll.
