Yippee! I have finished the wigs of my two ladies! Choosing hair color is an activity that I greatly appreciate. They finally have a personality and have come to life. Better yet, I can finally give them a name worthy of their faces: their names are, Estelle and Olivia. What do think of their name?
Good morning everyone! I’m on my way to finish assembling my second doll. The process is a bit difficult and I had to change the elastics, they were too small for her size. And yes, because of this mistake, I had to start all over again! Also, I had to be careful with her painting… her surface is very sensitive and I was afraid of the damaged … But I finally managed to complete her!
Bonjour à tous! Je suis en route pour terminer l’assembler de ma seconde poupée. Le processus est un peu difficile et j’ai dû changer les élastiques, ils étaient petits pour sa taille. Et oui, à cause de cette erreur, j’ai dû tout recommencer! Aussi, j’ai dû être prudente avec sa peinture … sa surface très sensible et j’avais peur de l’abîmé … Mais j’ai finalement réussi à la compléter!
Good morning! Here are some pictures taken of my young lady! I’m happy with her, despite some flaws in her sculpting. I must confess that I do like taking pictures. I’m not the best, but It’s a diversifying activity. Don’t be surprised if a new video of her is released shortly. Before I leave you, I’d like to add, that I did a little update on my inspirational board. In fact, it ‘s constantly evolving. I combine a lot of materials and accessories, ones next to others. I take pictures and than I draw… and I draw again!
Bon matin! Voici quelques photos prises de ma demoiselle! J’en suis contente, malgré certains défauts en matière de sculptage. Je dois vous que j’aime prendre des photos. Je ne suis pas la meilleure, mais je trouve l’activité diversifiante. Ne soyez pas étonné si une vidéo voit le jour d’ici peu. Avant de vous quitter, j’aimerais ajouter que j’ai fait une mise à jour sur mon tableau d’inspiration. En fait, il est constamment en évolution. Je combine énormément des matières et des accessoires, quelques uns à côté d’autres. Je prends des photos et je dessine… et je dessine encore!
I’ve finally finished assembling my big doll! The process was a bit long; her size made the assembly method a little more complicated. We should not forget that she’s the first big doll that I’ve made after all … However, she will not be the last time one, but forget the idea in making one in porcelain: my electric kiln is way too small. I plan to make her wig soon. In this photo, my doll sits next to an American Model by Robert Tonner. Yes, although I have sold a good part of my collectible dolls, among them, I have kept four. In the meantime, I will continue with the assembly of my second doll and take some pictures. See you soon guys!
Good morning! I’m almost done with assembly with one of my dolls. I can’t wait to see the final result! According to my calculations, this doll should measure about 56 cm (22 inches) once completed. Despite the fatigue, I am able to finish it. I have no idea what name I’m going to give her, it will come…Till then, follow me on both of my INSTAGRAM or FACEBOOK pages

Good evening to all of you! May I present to you Glòria my very first doll for 2016! Yeh! I started this beauty early last December between a very busy schedule (working and going to school). It was my first time using Kato polyclay. From what I’ve read and heard from various articles and artists, this polymer clay was a must try. Last fall, I decided to purchased a few of them, beige, brown and white translucent. I will make a very short review of this clay and I will focus mainly on my personal experience and on my research to find the best technical aspects on making fully sculpted dolls. Let’s not forget, that my dolls stand between 17 & 19 inches tall (43 cm & 48 cm) and I have NO intention in making smaller ones. First, this polymer clay looks and feels more like plastic when you touch it, but is not sticky when you start working with it. Second, if you need something to be strong after baking, this clay is the one to choose. Also this clay is not expensive for the quantity purchased (8,99 US$ for 12 Oz / 350g) http://prairiecraft.com/ On the other hand, I found two downsides to this polymer clay, the first one is its smell which tends to be very strong. In my own opinion, it smell like strong rubber or plastic, but I can work with it. The second downside, just like Cernit, the color darkens once baked. If I use it for future dolls, which I probably will, I plan to mix it with other strong polymer clays. For my Glòria, I chose the beige color mixed with translucent white. This beige color, unbaked, looks similar to Prosculpt Caucasian flesh.
