This is Ava and it bodes well, although I would have preferred to shape her head during the day light. But for lack of time, do to my day job, I didn’t have the choice to complete her head at night. Each time, it’s the same story: I turned on my lamps to the max in order to realize and develop all of the details. With Ava, I wanted to create an exotic face with a natural and flawless complexion.
Voici Ava et cela augure bien, quoique j’aurais préférée modeler sa tête le jour. Mais faute de temps, du à mon quart de travail de jour, je n’ai pas eu le choix de réaliser sa tête le soir. À chaque fois, c’est la même histoire : j’allume au maximum tous mes lampes afin de réaliser et de finaliser les détails. Avec Ava, je voulais créer un visage exotique avec un teint impeccable et naturel.
Hello! This is what I’ve been up to lately! I was working on two different head sculpts. The first one has a much bigger head and looks more like a teenager and the other one like a young woman. I discovered over the years that I like, not only diversity, but variety also…I quickly get bored by making the same head sculpt. I love challenging myself and try new things…I plan to sand and paint them very soon. Stay in touch my friends for more details in a few days!
Salut ! Voilà sur quoi je travaillais dernièrement! Je travaillais sur deux différentes têtes. L’une, avec une tête plus grande, ressemble à une jeune adolescente, et l’autre, à une jeune femme. Au cours des années, j’ai découvert que j’aimais, non seulement la diversité, mais aussi la variété… je m’ennuie rapidement lorsque je me mes à sculpter le même type tête. J’aime me mettre au défi et d’essayer de nouvelles choses… J’ai l’intention de sabler et depeinturer ces deux têtes très bientôt. Restez en contact mes amis pour plus de détails d’ici quelques jours !
Hello! Tonight and for the next three days, I will be posting news of Brielle, my second doll from the year 2013. She was created in late Fabruary of that year and made of 1½ pounds of Living doll (terracotta). Also, I added 110 grams of Fimo Classic to make her more solid. She stands 18 inches high (45,6 cm) and her eyes are handmade in crystal. Tomorrow, pictures of her sculpted body will be presented. Thanks and see you tomorrow evening.
Good evening everyone! Let me continue with Iris. On this second part of Iris, I want to take time to show you how she was sculpted. Her body was created under an aluminum wire, which I found less heavy compare to steel wire. She stand 17 inches (43 cm).
Thanks for watching and see you tomorrow for more updates
Good evening! By the end of the 2012, I decided to tried a new polymer clay: Living Doll. From various forums I eared this clay was excellent and was used by doll makers worldwide. It is also perfect for beginners
and those who like working with a softer polymer clay. I agree with this, since it’s
texture is easy to work with and can be mixed with any of the Sculpey or Premo clay to create intermediate flesh colors. The color palette is more realistic than Fimo clay. However, I wasn’t quite sure with this clay since I was use to work with more brutal and rough clay. Also, I found various techniques to condition tougher clay. The best solution for me was to test this clay by creating several doll heads and others with a mix of Fimo Classic and Soft.
That head was the first head that I’ve painted. I was a bit nervous but I’ve had to try the acrylic paints. The second photos on the left shows my second head painted. They were both created in February 2012.
I can’t help it! I have to show you guys my first batch of polymer clay heads. I’ve try to use various labels from the beginning! I’ve use Premo, Living Doll and Fimo Soft. I have to be honest, sculpting heads can be difficult, especially when it comes for eyes! The only way to do it…is by practicing a lot by visualizing, taking notes, watching videos and reading a lot professional doll or sculpting book.
