Sweet Charlotte part 2!

Hello to all doll lovers from all around the planet! I’m very happy to see that many of you are from different parts of the world: Brazil, Spain, United Kingdom, Italy, Russia, Australia, United States, from own country Canada and even from India! Wow! I couldn’t be more happier to share my passion for fashion art dolls with you guys. It is amazing because the list of countries goes on and on…thanks everybody from the bottom of my heart for your sincere interest! Culture in general  (whether it is music, food, fashion, movies, textiles) is a fantastic way to share and exchange with other people and dolls are no exception! My sweet Charlotte is no exception either to this topic… here she is almost finished at the time of this photo! Enjoy!

Adami part 2

Happy Sunday everyone! When I first made Adami, I knew right from the beginning, that I needed to challenged  a bit my self and do something a bit different. Although I knew at first, that this doll would be exotic, I wanted to sculpt something that looks more refine, more women and mysterious too. On my next post, you will see that continuity on the subject with another doll, Aglahé.  Thanks for watching and for you encouragement.

Fei Fan part 2

Hello folks! Before I continue with more pictures of my dear Fai Fan, I would love to give a sincere thank you to all of you who like Atelier Miss Georgia’s Facebook page. The page has reached 995 Likes and I am totally surprised and touched! It truly gives high hopes, since more dolls post are on their way…so stay tuned! For tonight’s post, I am showing more photos of Fai Fan. These photos were taken this past May. One more thing to add, I handmade Fei Fan’s eyes in a previous batch of glass eyes nearly two years ago. As a warning, when baking glass eyes within polymer clay, they tend to crack under the pressure once polymer clay cools down. This is why I opted for crystal handmade eyes. Although, after fabricating an excessive amount of glass eyes, I decided to use a few of them on my future dolls.  Enjoy and will see each other on my next post. Thanks/Merci!

Fei Fan

Hi everyone! Tonight it is a hot one in Montreal, the temperature is close to 30 degrees (94 Fahrenheit). I don’t know if I am going to be able to sleep well this evening. But frankly, were are in the month of August and it is totally normal! I’m no going to complain! Now, let me introduce you to Fei Fan, my very first Asian doll! Actually, she is more Chinese inspired and I have been dreaming a long time ago to create an Asian beauty. With the great result that I have experience with the mix of Living Doll and Fimo Classic, I was thrill to mold Fei Fan with that mix. Meanwhile, I did have problems molding her brown glass eyes though: four times actually! Fei Fan is quit petite compare to all my previous dolls, 17 inches (43 cm), but I am so happy on how she turned out! I will publish more photos of her tomorrow!  Thanks for watching!

Abrille

Happy Sunday everybody! Tonight it gives me a pleasure to introduce you to Abrille. She’s completely made from Cernit polymer clay (Almond). Before her, I had never used or tried this clay, it was only when I discover a great article on american doll artist Jamie Williamson, where you could see her gorgeous beauties made out of this clay. With more information on this clay, I learned that many internationally well know doll artists use this clay, like German artist, Rotraut Schrott. When it is unbaked, I founded this clay very hard, crumbly and inflexible and yes, for one moment I was a little worried. I asked  myself several questions: How can I condition this clay? Do I have to do it with the heat of my hands by making small balls? Do I use a ceramic roll to do the work and than finish it all with the pasta machine by making small pancakes? But this clay was still crumbling through my fingers while working with it!

I didn’t want to panic and it was not necessary, so the best thing for me to do was to inform myself and the end, I discovered that many people were using food processors. They work well because they warm the clay with friction as well as chop and mix it. It took me two days to condition it! The other downside of this clay, is it’s color darkens a lot on baking which shocked me for few minutes. However, in my own opinion, once it cooled down, Cernit clay gives a translucence finish effect that no other clay can achieve.The realistic finish effect is unbeatable! My Abrille skin tone finish look so alive! I couldn’t wait to sand and paint her and yes, despite the hardness of the clay, I was over the moon with the final result!

Thanks
