Crystal eyes

Good evening! A few posts ago, I presented two different sets of hand made doll eyes created in Fimo Classic & Fimo Soft: one set only painted and the other ones were glass eyes. Though I was quit a happy with both results, I still wasn’t satisfied with them. I wanted something sophisticated and with a touch of fantasy.

Thank you for watching!

Samynah & Filsan

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.

Thank you and see you tomorrow

Filsan

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.

Best riguards

Samynah

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.

Nezha part 1

Hello everyone! May I present you Nezha! She was created in late November 2012. She’s made in 1 ½ pound of Living Doll Baby, 1/8 of Prosculpt Ethnic brown and her glass eyes are handmade by me. To be honest, I love the skin tone of this doll and her lovely face, however I am truly disappointed with this polymer clay mix: it wasn’t though enough as I would  like to be and little cracks were made around her feet and ankle. I was so sad to discover this problem…problem that I didn’t’ have with Fimo Classic. The saddest part of this story, is that I purchased all the color available from Living Doll (Terracotta, light flesh and beige) for other dolls, may I say lots of dolls and which I’ll show you on future posts. Tomorrow, I will present more photos of Nezha painted and wigged.

See you tomorrow

Love!

New set of eyes

Hi everyone! After a month of practicing more heads, feet and hands, it was time for me to create new set of doll eyes. This time, I tried to use glass eyes, but still wanted to paint irises with acrylic paints and a mix of Fimo classic and Fimo Soft polymer clay. The end result was…OK at that time. In future posts, I will show you other glass eyes I was working on.

Thanks for watching

More Practice!

Hello! As I said yesterday on my post, I had to start all over again and by the end of 2012, I molded with more confidence new heads, hands and feet.

Starting Over!

Good evening! Yesterday I mentioned about my lack of knowledge about the human anatomy in 2012. That topic made me come to realized that I have to start all over again and had to do it properly! The first thing that I did was to subscribe to different doll forums and magazines, artist DVD tutorials and I bought better clay for doll making. I also purchased more lights and molding tools. One thing for sure, I knew if I wanted great results, I had to invest on suitable materials.
