Wig making!

dsc09002

Good Sunday to you all! Two weeks ago, I made a wig, but unsatisfied by the results, I had to redo another one! I love wigs built on top of a tulle or mesh basis: the final look is elegant and natural. For this young lady, I opted for natural hair from Brazil. This type of hair is more expensive, but significantly higher in quality! I will come back to you with more pictures in a few days. Thank you all!

Bon dimanche à tous! Il y a deux semaines, j’avais commencé la fabrication d’une perruque, insatisfaite par le résultat, j’ai du recommencé! J’aime beaucoup les perruques construites sur base en tulle ou de mèche : l’aspect final est élégant et naturelle. Pour cette demoiselle, j’ai opté pour des cheveux naturels en provenance du Brésil. Ce type de cheveux est plus coûteux, mais nettement de qualité supérieure! Je vous reviendrai avec d’autres photos d’ici quelques jours. Merci à tous!

Haulani!

Good evening! It feels so good to be back and posting on dolls again! A few days ago, in one of my posts, I mentioned that two dolls created in 2015, haven’t yet been shown! I was totally short in time, with my day job, going to college, testing polymer clay, improving a few Technics in my doll making and the list still goes on… Now, let’s talk about this one, Haulani, a big doll, stands 19 ½ inches tall (50 cm). She’s entirely made in Living doll polymer clay and her eyes are handmade by me in Swarovsky crystal cabochons, just like the ones that I previously made for a few dolls. She was not easy to sculpt, since her height and weight did not help. In fact, during the process of curing her, I had to make sure her under armature made with Fimo Classic was sturdy! Because of multiple cracks, due to the clay, she took me almost 5 weeks to complete! I did not want to loose any clay, since a few of them are expensive to buy and let me say it, I simply do not like waste! After she cooled down, although she had few cracks, Haulani’s skin color turned out lovely! I will continue with more photos of her tomorrow! Thanks/Merci!

Meet the blossom Maly!

Good evening my doll friends! After a week following New York Spring/Summer 2016 fashion week, I was pleased with many shows that I saw live on newyorkfashionweeklive.com . I especially loved  what I saw, of course, at Mara Hoffman, but also at Anna Sui, Custo Barcelona, Dennis Basso and Monique Lhuillier. They all work with great textiles, strong looks, lovely colors and lots of femininity mostly with flowers, whether they were printed, embroidered or beaded. As you can see, I’m not too much for big labels, though I love a few of them and now it is time for me to get back to dolls! Speaking of flowers, meet the blossom Maly. Though, this name sounds like Mally, which origin is Latin and means “sweet”, my version is Cambodian. Maly, which you pronounce, ma-hlee, meaning flower blossom in Cambodian and its origin is from Khmer majority. Khemer people are  a predominant ethnic group in Cambodia, accounting for approximately 90% of its population.  Their civilization mainly flourished between 800 to 1370 and they were known for their remarkable architecture. Also, like most of the meanings of Cambodian names, they are generally very simple and reference positive attributes, Maly’s is no exception. She is calm, smiling even if an inner drama touches her, she doesn’t like to bother those around her and keeps her problems to herself. Her attitude is stable and fairly easy to live with. She is also very intuitive and trustful. As a final word, this doll was entirely made in Living doll clay (beige), yes I said it, Living Doll! Tonight, I won’t explain what happened next with this clay, once baked, because I think you all have a tiny idea…and I prefer to keep it for my next post. Though this clay makes me nervous every time I use it, I had to try it for the beige color flesh and to compare it with other polymer clay beige colors: Prosculpt, Fimo Puppen and Fimo Soft. She stands 18 ½” (47 cm) , has handmade brown glass eyes and was the last doll created in 2014 (November). Thanks for watching my dear friends and more photos of Maly will be featured this weekend.

Best regards

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!

Dawn

Hi guys! I can’t believe we are already in mid-August and that summer is almost…over! Ooops…I did not want to say that and scared people. Let me say it out loud my friends : summer is still here with us for the next five weeks and lets do enjoy it! Now, let me introduce you to my dear Dawn, my third ”demoiselle” that I molded during the month of May last year. Dawn is made of Living Doll clay  (Terracotta) with a mix of Fimo Classic (Chocolate). The mix of the two clays gives a pure rich dark brown tone that is more closer to real African or African American skin tone compare to other clays. Also, it is nicely semi-translucent, since Fimo Classic used alone, is not. I truly recommend Living Doll Terracotta color, if you want to make an authentic black skin doll, it really does look like real skin! Meanwhile, add a bit of Fimo Classic to firm it up! On pictures below, you will notice that Dawn’s sculpture does not match my drawing or the model picture. I do admit, that I did have a bit of a problem molding her. Seriously, when it comes to molding, I need more than one picture of a live model: front and both profiles, from the right to left side, to make something closer to reality. I promised myself that next time, I will sculpt this doll again, but with another type of polymer clay. Anyways, I do like this doll head. More Pictures of Dawn tomorrow and thanks again everybody for your sincere support!
