Hello! On tonight’s post I will continue with the work in progress of Adele! Some of you may have seen some pictures of her on my Facebook or Google + pages! Like my previous doll Glòria, I decided to use once again Kato polyclay, the brown color. This clay is very good, but in my own opinion, it’s better and stronger once mixed with an other clay, such as Fimo. The brown color is very pretty too, but gets darker once baked.Sorry that the photos do not do justice to Adele.
Hello everyone! Here is a little preview of my very first doll for 2016! She’s the first one that I created with Kato clay, a polymer clay that I had never used since my journey on making ooak dolls. I will sure make a small review on this clay on my next post. Thanks for watching!
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!
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!
Hello! I want to share more photos of of Samynah, Filsan and…Brielle! Brielle is the second doll I sculpted in early march 2013. The first doll created doing that early year was Iris, which I will both present this week. Stay in touch!
Good evening! Yesterday, I present Samynah, tonight it is Filsan turn. In Somalian, this name means, more mature then her age. She was created with the same polymer clay mix of Samynah. Her eyes were handmade by me. The technique that I used was very simple: crystal cabochon, polymer clay and acrylic paints. Filsan head sculpt is an important one, she’s the one who set Atelier Miss Georgia aesthetic. Also, since both dolls heads were created in the same month, January 2013, both were sand and painted a the same time. More pictures of them painted tomorrow.
Good evening! Yesterday, I presented my very first doll head from the year 2013, Samynah. She was made in in late January of that year and created in Living Doll (Terracotta), Fimo Classic (chocolate) and Premo (Frost). It took me 10 hours to sculpted her… in fact, I sculpted her head over and over again…well 5 times! I was simply unhappy with the first three results. At first, she looked like a small child and all I wanted was a beautiful young lady from eastern Africa: Ethiopia, Tanzania and Somalia. More photos of her painted will be presented tomorrow. Stay in touch.
Good evening! By the end of the 2012, I decided to tried a new polymer clay: Living Doll. From various forums I eared this clay was excellent and was used by doll makers worldwide. It is also perfect for beginners and those who like working with a softer polymer clay. I agree with this, since it’s texture is easy to work with and can be mixed with any of the Sculpey or Premo clay to create intermediate flesh colors. The color palette is more realistic than Fimo clay. However, I wasn’t quite sure with this clay since I was use to work with more brutal and rough clay. Also, I found various techniques to condition tougher clay. The best solution for me was to test this clay by creating several doll heads and others with a mix of Fimo Classic and Soft.
Good evening! By the end of summer 2012, after Ally, I’ve sculpted one head sculpt in Fimo Classic Chocolate. It gave me the chance to test my face up on darker skin tone which I’ve never did. I was hooked with the result, but I did do a lot of recherche on dark skin shadows and light effect. From that moment, I felt more confidant with my sculpting and painting skills.
