Happy Friday! After four days off on my blog, let me introduce you to AnaÏs, my forth doll from 2013. She came to life in late May of that year and the polymer clay I used was Fimo Puppen (Beige). I was already amazed with both Fimo Classic and Fimo Soft for their firm aspect once baked, that I wasn’t worried with Fimo Puppen no matter the end result and I was right! though, It needs to be mixed with another color to achieve a more natural looking flesh tone. It was easy to knead, blend and was fairly unbreakable after it was baked. For those reasons, I was over the moon with this clay and I purchased two other colors (rose and porcelain), which I will show you in future dolls. More photos of her tomorrow!
Good morning everyone! Yesterday, on presenting Jane, I forgot to tell you that she was my third doll for the year 2013 and was actually made in the month of April. Her handmade eyes are a combination of Fimo Classic polymer clay and Preciosia crystal. She also stands 18 inches (45,6 cm) tall. Sorry for the photos…my actual camera doesn’t do the doll justice and I’m thinking of buying a new one as a Christmas gift for myself. Enjoy!
Good morning! Here is Jane, she’s made from Prosculpt polymer clay. Prosculpt was developed by doll maker Jack Johnston for sculpting art dolls or figure dolls. It is sold in 1 pound (454 gr) block and is available only in four flesh tones: baby, fairy, Caucasian and ethnic brown. This polymer does not require a lot of kneading. This helps to reduce plaques, moons and air pockets which can sometimes be trapped in clay kneaded for long periods. I find this clay too soft if I work a lot with it, but not that oily as Living Doll. However, what I do love with this clay, is this translucent, flesh-like color, closer to natural flesh tones than most polymer clay. The disadvantage of this clay is that it is a bit expensive ($20 per block in Canadian dollar without taxes) and must be ordered online. Although, I have heard good things of this clay from well known doll artists and makers, such as Mark Denis, Patricia Rose and Renata Jansen. More photos of Jane will be presented tomorrow.
Hi everyone! Finally it’s Friday and time to present the final part of Brielle’s photos. On these photos, she looks darker than before I put her in the oven and that’s normal since polymer clay tends to go darker once baked. Meanwhile, I did this on purpose, I used professional acrylic paints that has high pigments, Liquitex. These paints have a smooth, creamy and a beautiful satin finish. Once both Brielle and Iris where finished, I was hooked with the final results. Enjoy!
https://ateliermissgeorgia.com/2015/07/24/brielle-part-2/Hi everyone! Yesterday and even last weekend, I presented Brielle head sculpted. But before I continue with her sculpted body, I think it is important to inform you that Brielle’s name is a popular one in the Bahamas. So, it was not invented by me! Now, here are more photos of her fully molded and sculpted. Finally, I want to add, that over the years, I have developed different modeling tools to make my work easier and pleasant, such as this handmade mini sculpting round table. It’s fantastic to work with and I can mold and look at my ladies from every angle without destroying long hours of hard work. Thank you once again for watching and for the 610 Likes on my Facebook page. I will see you tomorrow for the 3rd part of Brielle.
Hello! Tonight and for the next three days, I will be posting news of Brielle, my second doll from the year 2013. She was created in late Fabruary of that year and made of 1½ pounds of Living doll (terracotta). Also, I added 110 grams of Fimo Classic to make her more solid. She stands 18 inches high (45,6 cm) and her eyes are handmade in crystal. Tomorrow, pictures of her sculpted body will be presented. Thanks and see you tomorrow evening.
Hello to you all! I going to make short and sweet, tonight, I’m showing more photos of Iris and tomorrow it will be the first part of Brielle, my second doll from the year 2013. Thanks you so much for watching!
Good evening everyone! Let me continue with Iris. On this second part of Iris, I want to take time to show you how she was sculpted. Her body was created under an aluminum wire, which I found less heavy compare to steel wire. She stand 17 inches (43 cm).
Thanks for watching and see you tomorrow for more updates
Good evening everyone! I present to you my first doll from 2013, Iris. She was sculpted in early January of that year and was created in a mix of Living Doll (light flesh) and Premo clay (frost). I have to admit, I was scared to use Living Doll for the second time, since I did not have a good experience with this clay with a previous doll (Nezha). But, I did the mistake to buy too much of this clay and since I do not like waist, I decided to give it a second go around for future dolls. However, it had to be mixed with more firmer clay, such as Fimo Puppen or Fimo Classic. Iris was great to sculpted. She took a whole week end to make and has crystal hand made eyes. More photos of her tomorrow.
