Painting is beautiful, but….

NEA-work in progress-AMG DOLL (34)

Good evening my friends! The first coat of acrylic paint was applied on Nia and I love the natural result…However, I have to admit, though I love to paint, sometimes painting can cause a real mess!

Bonsoir les amis et voici la première couche de peinture effectuée sur Nia! J’aime l’effet naturel du résultat…mais je de dois vous avouer, bien que j’aime peinturer, la peinture peut parfois causer un vrai désordre!

Glòria’s front lace wig!

Happy Sunday evening art doll lovers! My Glòria front lace wig is finally finished! Actually, I’ve been working and learning on how to make this kind of wig for a while now…almost two years now! Many of you might be asking yourselves what a front lace wig is? A lace wig is simply hair which is ventilated one by one on top of lace mesh fabric, it’s than glued in front of the person’s front head. Once the front lace wig is glued, it gives the impression that the hair is actually naturally rooted onto the person wearing the wig. This type of wig is truly loved and appreciated by many celebrities, such as, Oprah, Beyoncé and Jessica Simpson , but also by people with cancer. Even though, it takes me two days to make, not including hair styling it, I love the natural finish that it gives.

My mysterious Lara part 4

Finally, on tonight’s final post on my mysterious Lara, I can now show to you a few pictures that I’ve made of her with my new camera! This camera is a Sony Cyber-shot (DSC-HX50V). I have zero experience with digital cameras, but I got few help with a professional technician from Sony while going to Best Buy and during that day I was pretty lucky! I was told that the previous main problem that I had with my older camera, another one from Sony for which they don’t produce anymore, is that my memory stick wasn’t big enough to take strong pictures, only 1GB! This time, I made sure to do a good research in what kind of camera that I wanted and for what use. By that away, don’t be surprise, if you see more doll photos taken with my older camera, since most of my previous works were made with it as archives. I will publish more photos of her tomorrow.

My mysterious Lara part 2

Good evening! On this second part of my mysterious Lara, I will be showing her progression on making her wig for which it is made in a very light blond color (#613) made in a mix of synthetic and human blends. At first, I wasn’t into using synthetic hair, simply because it did not look natural to me, especially when I make Caucasian dolls. After purchasing various brands and thanks to my dear sisters, I have somewhat put this prejudice aside. This mix of synthetic and human hair on Lara’s head, is so soft that one could not see or feel the difference between the two. Also, what is great with this mix, is that you can iron it in a cool temperature. Thanks everybody for watching!

Hello everybody! After what happen in Paris, in respect to these difficult times, I thought it was better not to post anything for at least two days. There is a huge French community here in Montreal and a special peace and solidarity walk was initiated by our mayor, Denis Coderre today. A fantastic crowd of 10 000 people joined in and walk all the way to the French Consulate.

Early last week, I had introduced you to my lovely Lerato and I wasn’t happy with her pictures at all, but I will show some of them anyways…However, the good news is that I finally purchased a new camera! I tried it today and it’s awesome! The pictures that you will see of Lerato are made will my old camera.

Thanks/Merci

Happy Sunday everybody! This is the third and final part of my big baby face doll, Faye! It’s incredible how I feel about about her! I’m so pleased on how she turned out once wigged because she looks different and innocent and I do admit that I like this! I would like to know, what do you think of her? I’m curious to know your opinion! Thanks doll lovers and I will see you soon!

Happy Sunday dear friends! I will make this short and sweet. Before I continue and leave you with more photos of Maly, it’s important for me to say that not only this doll was my last one from 2014, but it was also a new beginning for me. Though I did like sculpting her and loved her name background story, I did not have any chance with Maly: she had small cracks all over her shoulders, her arms and on her right ankle. As far as I knew it, I could not looked at this doll anymore and I even seriously asked myself, if I should make a post on her! Finally, by listening my heart, I thought It would not have been fair, not only for me, but also to all people who want to create polymer clay dolls, to not showing her. After deep thinking, I took a two months hiatus and make a new plan. In this plan, I made a small inventory of what I have accomplished after three years by making dolls. But deep down inside of me, it was time for change, in terms of materials and what I want to do next for the year 2015. I told myself, something different must be made for my future handmade dolls, both technically and aesthetically. I will get back on this topic on my next post and till than, enjoy your weekend my dear doll friends.

Good evening everyone! Before I continue with more photos of Magdalena, as someone who’s working in the fashion industry, the New York fashion week kicked off last week and lots of great american fashion designers will be showing their latest creations and I can’t not allow myself to miss it! So don’t be surprised if I post some fashion catwalks on my website…it will give me a small break from dolls this week. Of course, I will mainly post only fashion designers who share my love for ethnic textiles. Thanks everyone once again and I am living you with more pictures of Magdalena.

Haven!

Hello all doll lovers! It was a very hot one today in Montreal. To be more precise: sticky and humid! But, for tonight, it is time to introduce you to my tall Haven (19″/48,2 cm). Not only is she tall, but also a little heavy. This beauty was created at the end of October of 2014 and was fully sculpted in Fimo Puppen. Haven was such a joy to make, though it took me three days to condition the clay. After baking, the clay was very strong and even the tiny details came out pretty well, but not as translucent as I wished. Which means more work for me on the painting side. I would have loved that her handmade glass eyes to be much bigger…just to show their blue color better. Despite that, I really enjoyed making her. I will post more photos of Haven tomorrow.

Best regards
