Hello everybody! After what happen in Paris, in respect to these difficult times, I thought it was better not to post anything for at least two days. There is a huge French community here in Montreal and a special peace and solidarity walk was initiated by our mayor, Denis Coderre today. A fantastic crowd of 10 000 people joined in and walk all the way to the French Consulate.

Early last week, I had introduced you to my lovely Lerato and I wasn’t happy with her pictures at all, but I will show some of them anyways…However, the good news is that I finally purchased a new camera! I tried it today and it’s awesome! The pictures that you will see of Lerato are made will my old camera.

Thanks/Merci

Lerato

Good evening! Yesterday, I posted that I will be showing more photos of my lovely Lerato, unfortunately, I can’t tonight, since I’m not happy with all of the photos that I took of her. So, I have no choice, but to take other photos of her during the weekend. Meanwhile, here’s one that looks just fine…sorry for this miss understanding! Since I’m new in the art doll industry, you can be sure, that I do take my doll work pretty seriously! Thanks everyone for your great support.

Good evening to you all! As you may have seen, I normally post late at night, though I try to post more during the day, It is just impossible for the moment. I work part time and also go to college during the day and during the weekend I study and do homework. I know what your probably thinking and asking yourself, how do I take time to make dolls? Well, I made a very tight schedule where I can practice and make dolls: 5 hours are reserved for sculpting body parts (heads, hands and feet) during weekdays and 12 hours during the weekend to make a complete doll.Though it takes a full month to complete her or in other words, it takes me between 35 and 45 hours to make a complete naked doll and her outfit takes nearly the same time.

Now, it’s time to introduce you to my lovely Lerato. This South African name means “love” in Sotho.This optimistic name, also means someone who has been given vision to be able to organize others and to hold positions of responsibility with poise and self-confidence. Lerato is also a person who has the ability to express her thoughts and ideas, who’s friendly, likable, generous, enjoys fun and laughter. She’s also devoted to art, music, drama, or to any forms of art expression. My lovely Lerato came to life last April and is made in a mix of polymer clay: Cernit, Prosculpt and Living Doll and stands 18 inches tall (45,6 cm). More pictures of her will be posted tomorrow. Thanks for watching!

Adami

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!
