Agnès with Fukiko & Betty!

*WARNING! SOME NUDITY IS FEATURED IN THIS POST. PARENTAL GUIDANCE IS REQUIRED.

Bonjour everyone! Two days ago, my dear Agnès was introduced to you wigged! Speaking of wigs, the hair used was synthetic, I have used it, to mimic natural black hair. Also, I changed my way on making wigs. They now look a bit more natural and I use 85% of the time fine quality human hair and the other 15% is a mix of human and mohair. In a future, I will elaborate more on the subject with a another doll… For tonight’s post, I decided to present Agnès with two of my previous dolls, Fukiko & Betty.

It was important for me to present her and compare her with other dolls that I created in the past, because yes, in my own point of view, Agnès looks different from my old dolls. For one, she’s taller and more linear. Two, her face looks more women like and her features are little bit more “realistic”, in other word less cartoon like! I sculpted her in being aware that I needed to make a more mature doll, rather than childish looking one. Though a few past dolls also look more women like, Rachelle, Aglahé and Beatrice come to mind, however with Agnès, I went more deeply with her sculpt aesthetic!

Happy Sunday dear friends! I will make this short and sweet. Before I continue and leave you with more photos of Maly, it’s important for me to say that not only this doll was my last one from 2014, but it was also a new beginning for me. Though I did like sculpting her and loved her name background story, I did not have any chance with Maly: she had small cracks all over her shoulders, her arms and on her right ankle. As far as I knew it, I could not looked at this doll anymore and I even seriously asked myself, if I should make a post on her! Finally, by listening my heart, I thought It would not have been fair, not only for me, but also to all people who want to create polymer clay dolls, to not showing her. After deep thinking, I took a two months hiatus and make a new plan. In this plan, I made a small inventory of what I have accomplished after three years by making dolls. But deep down inside of me, it was time for change, in terms of materials and what I want to do next for the year 2015. I told myself, something different must be made for my future handmade dolls, both technically and aesthetically. I will get back on this topic on my next post and till than, enjoy your weekend my dear doll friends.

Good evening everyone! Before I continue with more photos of Magdalena, as someone who’s working in the fashion industry, the New York fashion week kicked off last week and lots of great american fashion designers will be showing their latest creations and I can’t not allow myself to miss it! So don’t be surprised if I post some fashion catwalks on my website…it will give me a small break from dolls this week. Of course, I will mainly post only fashion designers who share my love for ethnic textiles. Thanks everyone once again and I am living you with more pictures of Magdalena.

Haven!

Hello all doll lovers! It was a very hot one today in Montreal. To be more precise: sticky and humid! But, for tonight, it is time to introduce you to my tall Haven (19″/48,2 cm). Not only is she tall, but also a little heavy. This beauty was created at the end of October of 2014 and was fully sculpted in Fimo Puppen. Haven was such a joy to make, though it took me three days to condition the clay. After baking, the clay was very strong and even the tiny details came out pretty well, but not as translucent as I wished. Which means more work for me on the painting side. I would have loved that her handmade glass eyes to be much bigger…just to show their blue color better. Despite that, I really enjoyed making her. I will post more photos of Haven tomorrow.

Best regards

Here comes Jaya!

Here comes Jaya! This Indian name has many meanings, in Sanskrit Jaya means victory; it is also the name of a famous mountain in Indonesia, Puncak Jaya actually. However, the true meaning of this name is a secret woman, who is reserved and careful. She does not show to much of her emotions or her feelings and prefers to keep cold headed. She is also very determined, mature and will work rigorously to get through administrative procedures to achieve her goals. As some of you may have notice or who know India very well, I decided to choose a girl from the south instead of the north, meaning someone darker who lives in the Tamil Nadu region, which is closer to Sri Lanka. My doll Jaya came alive in late October of 2014 and was sculpted from a mix of different brands of polymer clay: Prosculpt, Living Doll and Fimo Soft. In my opinion, this mix was to soft and malleable while I was working with it and had to work quickly with it since it become sticky in a short period of time. The next step was to let the clay rest for two days; otherwise I could not work with it properly and would lose patience with a soft clay, which did not permit me to mold specific details: nose, fingers, toes, eyes and ears. Sadly, I sensed something would go wrong with this doll and at the end I was right, because a few fissures appeared on her body, especially on her arms and behind the neck. You can be sure that I will never be using this combination of this mixes of clays ever again, though it was a nice try…and really do love the way I sculpted her. To finish with this post, her green handmade glass eyes were made by me and her wig is made out of black human hair.  Thanks for your interest in my dolls, all you doll lovers!

You may have notice there is a huge crack around her neck…this is due to the mix of (fimo soft/ prosculpt & Living Doll) and it was not a good one! Because of his softness, it could not support the strong wire armature that I made for this doll. It is so sad, since I really do like this doll sculpt, but one thing is clear, I can’t use this mix! I want high quality and the best for my dolls!

Honor

Good evening all art doll lovers! Tonight I feel better with all the nice comments on my dolls that I have received from several Facebook followers. Making and creating dolls, in my studio, is most of the time a serene one but it can sometimes feel lonely too. Thanks to each of them and I really feel the spirit of the doll community and for which I am very proud to be part of! For the second part of this post, here are more photos of Honor a doll that pretty much enjoy to create last year. As I previously explained in yesterday’s post, Honor does not look Irish. Though I had one in mind, when I drew her at first, but when it came to sculpt her…it was another story! Even with her red hair and wrinkles, she looks much more as an Asian girl instead. Regardless of these minor differences, I hope you will like her.

Thanks and have a great evening
