Good evening! Tonight’s post is dedicated to my fifth doll of the year 2014, Adami. She stands 18 inch high (45,7 cm), has handmade maroon glass eyes and her wig is made of synthetic hair. Adami is entirely made of Prosculpt (Ethnic flesh) polymer clay. Talking about black skin color, It is hard to imagine, but according to L’Oréal, the french cosmetic empire, there are more than 20 shades of black skin tone around the world! However, according to Karen Chambers who works in product development at IMAN cosmetics, the numbers is higher than that : over 36 actually. She adds that this is due to the mix of races and it does have impact in the nuances of skin color. On my side, as a ethnic doll maker, Prosculpt Ethnic Flesh is so representative of black skin color and respects the general human skin tone as does their other colors, especially Caucasian and baby flesh. One last thing I need to mention, Adami’s head sculpt is a bit different from what I did in the past: both her lips and nose are a little smaller and so is her silhouette. I was definitely into an African girl ,especially from Kenya, when I molded her. Thanks for watching!
