These are the two heads that I’m working on and because of a nasty cold, I didn’t have the chance to paint their bodies. I intend to take two days off to heal myself. I really need it. I tried to work, but I couldn’t. However, I plan to rework my inspirational board and start drawing some styles. I’ll see you soon guys.
Good morning my friends! It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything in terms of dolls. But don’t worry, over the past few weeks, I haven’t been out of work! Indeed, I’ve made not one, but two beautiful large BDJ dolls. They are made out of polymer clay. What do you want, I’ve missed polymer clay! It’s a material that I know very well. My return to polymer clay is simple, it is due to my desire to surpass myself. Actually, I wanted to make bigger dolls and with a slender body. These dolls will measure 23 inches (57 cm) high. I’m excited about this new adventure… I’m putting together my very first real doll fashion collection. Stay tuned for what’s coming and I’ll see you soon!
Bon matin mes amis! Cela fait un bon moment que je n’ai pas publié quoique ce soit en termes de poupées. Mais ne vous inquiétez pas, au cours des dernières semaines, je n’ai pas chômé! En effet, j’ai fabriqué pas une, mais belle et bien deux grandes poupées BDJ en pâte de polymère. Que voulez-vous, la pâte de polymère m’a manqué! C’est une matière que je connais fort bien. Mon retour avec la pâte de polymère est tout simplement dû à l’envie de me surpasser. En fait, je veux fabriquer des poupées plus grandes et voir sveltes. Celles-ci vont mesurées 57 cm (23 pouces) de haut. Je suis excitée par cette nouvelle aventure…Je mets sur pieds ma toute première vraie collection mode avec des poupées. Restez branché et à bientôt!
Hello my friends! And Yes, I have made other heads… and I intend to make more! Other heads mean other molds! Making plaster molds is no longer a secret for me. To my greatest astonishment, I even became comfortable with the procedure. The only thing that annoys me is the dirt it generates!
Bonjour mes amis! Et oui, j’ai fabriqué d’autres têtes…et je compte d’en fabriquer d’autres! D’autres têtes équivalent a d’autres moules! La fabrication de moules n’est plus un secret pour moi, à mon grand étonnement, je suis même devenue à l’aise avec la procédure. La seule chose qui m’énerve c’est la saleté que cela génère!
Happy Sunday everyone! I’ve finally finished my prototype doll! By including various technical drawings, this doll took me 4 months of work! I couldn’t wait to finish her and now I will complete another step: making plaster molds!
Bon dimanche tout le monde! J’ai enfin terminé ma poupée prototype! En incluant les différents dessins techniques, cette poupée m’a pris 4 mois de travail! J’avais hâte de la terminer et maintenant je dois passer l’autre étape : la fabrication de moules de plâtre!
Good evening! It feels so good to be back and posting on dolls again! A few days ago, in one of my posts, I mentioned that two dolls created in 2015, haven’t yet been shown! I was totally short in time, with my day job, going to college, testing polymer clay, improving a few Technics in my doll making and the list still goes on… Now, let’s talk about this one, Haulani, a big doll, stands 19 ½ inches tall (50 cm). She’s entirely made in Living doll polymer clay and her eyes are handmade by me in Swarovsky crystal cabochons, just like the ones that I previously made for a few dolls. She was not easy to sculpt, since her height and weight did not help. In fact, during the process of curing her, I had to make sure her under armature made with Fimo Classic was sturdy! Because of multiple cracks, due to the clay, she took me almost 5 weeks to complete! I did not want to loose any clay, since a few of them are expensive to buy and let me say it, I simply do not like waste! After she cooled down, although she had few cracks, Haulani’s skin color turned out lovely! I will continue with more photos of her tomorrow! Thanks/Merci!
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!
Hello everyone! I would like to give a huge thanks to all the new LIKES (245 actually) on Atelier Miss Georgia’s Facebook page! It gives me great hopes with my dolls! Now, may I present you Samynah and Filsan painted. I know, they look a bit different from previous pictures, but acrylic paints can be tricky: they dry very quickly and you must work fast, otherwise, no matter the results, they stays forever. And yes, I learned my lesson.
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.
