Agnès name meaning

Good evening everybody! I hope you did have a fantastic Valentines Day with your love ones and took time to eat chocolate!  On tonight’s post, I will continue with Agnès name meaning. Agnes is a Greek name meaning “pure” or “holy”. The name passed to Italian as Agnese, to Portugues as Inês, and to Spanish, as Inés. This old name was in fact widely popular due to the fact that it was also the name of a famous Christian saint, Saint Agnes of Rome. Also for more than 400 years,  Agnes was the third most popular name for women in the English speaking world, especially in the Middle Ages. I know, many of you think this name does not suit her, due to  her “African” look, but when I created her, I though of Haitian women…and let’s not forget that most Haitian names are French ones do the the mix of some our ancestors and French colonization! Thank you for reading and will see each other soon!

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day everyone! I’m glad to present to you my lovely Agnès once again  and half dressed! I did not do anything special, I simply wrapped around her a piece of cloth and pinned everything in the back and to finish it all, I added tiny semi precious beads (Citrines and Carnelians). As you can see, especially to all people who follow my different boards on my Pinterest page, https://www.pinterest.com/amgeorgia/ ,  I am a huge fanatic of colors! I simply cannot leave without color! Color is joy, happiness, laughter and LOVE! Enjoy!

Aglahé

Hello! Let me present to you Aglahé! Inspired from mix race Dutch Guiana beauties, Aglahé is made out of Cernit Flesh and Prosculpt Ethnic flesh polymer clay. She stands 18 inches high (45,7 cm), her wig is made out of high quality human hair and her glass eyes are handmade by me. Speaking of glass eyes, as you can see up close on Aglahé’s right eye, there is a crack across the middle. This problem is do to the pressure of the clay once it is cooled down after baking. I made that remark a few days ago in a previous post Fei Fan part 2 and the reason why I switched to crystal eyes.  I molded her on following Adami’s slim silhouette, but with more “sex appeal”. Also, I was a bit afraid at first on how I molded her face, I thought of ET the extraterrestrial for a moment. Sorry to say that, but seriously I didn’t know how she would turned out after baking her and I didn’t want to think on how I would paint her. I hope you like her, despite this problem. More photos of her will be posted tomorrow. Thanks and have great night.

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!

Georgia

Good afternoon! What a beautiful Saturday it is sunny here in Montreal. There are a few clouds and the weather is just perfect for early August, 25 degrees (70 Fahrenheit). Before I talk about Georgia, I just want to let all of you know that Atelier Miss Georgia is now on Flickr! On that page, I will only promote the behind scenes on making my one of a kind fashion art dolls, maybe other photos like sketches will be featured, but I will see what will be happening in the future. Here is the link to my Flickr page  http://www.flickr.com/photos/133491917@N08/  or go directly to my website and click the FLICKR button on Atelier Miss Georgia’s home page at  http://www.ateliermissgeorgia.com . Now, It is time to present Georgia my last doll created in December 2013. Just like Betty, she is also made of Living Doll polymer clay but I decided to add 56 grams of Fimo Classic caramel. I think that was the right thing for me to do because she turned out more solid than Betty sculpt. By discovering that, I knew Fimo Classic was the perfect clay to mix with Living Doll to give it more strength! Like all my previous dolls, Georgia has beautiful handmade blue crystal eyes, stands 18 inches tall (46 cm) and her wig is made of human hair that I curled.Thanks again everyone for your support! I will see you on my next post!

Betty part one

Good evening! How are all of you feeling tonight? In my case, it couldn’t have been better! It’s been almost two months, since I’ve been posting my ”ladies” both here on my website and on Facebook! It is a lot of work, but I truly love it and I’m making new connections with lovely people who either share the same interests or appreciate what I do. As I mentioned yesterday on my Facebook page, here is Betty my sixth doll from the year 2013. She’s made from leftover Living Doll clay and since I do not like waist nor this clay, I felted culpable and obligated to sculpted her! This clay…really makes me nervous since I have to work with it quickly, otherwise it sticks to my hands and I have a hard time to mold. Also, do not be surprised that on future posts to see MANY other dolls made from this clay! Some of you might be wondering why I continued to use this clay, the answer is very simple: because it was the only polymer clay that I could find easily here in Montreal, in a specialized hobby and craft store. In addition, I wanted to give it a chance by combining it with other higher quality polymer clay, such as Fimo Puppen, Fimo Classic and Cernit, which are used by professional doll artists. Thanks for watching!

Brielle part 3

Hi everyone! Finally it’s Friday and time to present the final part of Brielle’s photos. On these photos, she looks darker than before I put her in the oven and that’s normal since polymer clay tends to go darker once baked. Meanwhile, I did this on purpose, I used professional acrylic paints that has high pigments, Liquitex. These paints have a smooth, creamy and a beautiful satin finish. Once both Brielle and Iris where finished, I was hooked with the final results. Enjoy!

Best regards

Brielle part 2

https://ateliermissgeorgia.com/2015/07/24/brielle-part-2/Hi everyone! Yesterday and even last weekend, I presented Brielle head sculpted. But before I continue with her sculpted body, I think it is important to inform you that Brielle’s name is a popular one in the Bahamas. So, it was not invented by me! Now, here are more photos of her fully molded and sculpted. Finally, I want to add, that over the years, I have developed different modeling tools to make my work easier and pleasant, such as this handmade mini sculpting round table. It’s fantastic to work with and I can mold and look at my ladies from every angle without destroying long hours of hard work. Thank you once again for watching and for the 610 Likes on my Facebook page. I will see you tomorrow for the 3rd part of Brielle.
