Betty part 2

Hello everyone! For tonight’s post, I will make it short and sweet, this is the second and final part of my doll Betty. As I noticed on my Facebook page, many of you truly liked her and so do I! However, I would have preferred to have sculpted her from another professional clay, even though I enjoy the way she is sculpted, her features and her skin color. Betty stands 18 inches tall (46 cm), her blue grey eyes are handmade in crystal and her wig is made of human hair that I curled.¬†Sculpted by accident, but she ended up having a beneficial effect on my doll making image and aesthetics.Thanks for watching and see you on my next post.

Betty part one

Good evening! How are all of you feeling tonight? In my case, it couldn’t have been better! It’s been almost two months, since I’ve been posting my ”ladies” both here on my website and on Facebook! It is a lot of work, but I truly love it and I’m making new connections with lovely people who either share the same interests or appreciate what I do. As I mentioned yesterday on my Facebook page, here is Betty my sixth doll from the year 2013. She’s made from leftover Living Doll clay and since I do not like waist nor this clay, I felted culpable and obligated to sculpted her! This clay…really makes me nervous since I have to work with it quickly, otherwise it sticks to my hands and I have a hard time to mold. Also, do not be surprised that on future posts to see MANY¬†other dolls made from this clay! Some of you might be wondering why I continued to use this clay, the answer is very simple: because it was the only polymer clay that I could find easily here in Montreal, in a specialized hobby and craft store. In addition, I wanted to give it a chance by combining it with other higher quality polymer clay, such as Fimo Puppen, Fimo Classic and Cernit, which are used by professional doll artists. Thanks for watching!
