Silicone mold tests

Ready for my first mold test/ Je suis prête pour mes premiers moules

Hi all! I am ready for the development of silicone molds. However, I have to do a first test to determine how much silicone I will need. Volume is paramount for this task. I have to measure the height, width and depth of each piece. Afterwards, I have to take the measurements of each parts of the doll, and then make the molds with the help of Styrofoam boards. For this delicate operation, I will have to work outside. The aerosol spray is toxic and harmful to the lungs.

Bonjour à tous! Je suis prête pour l’élaboration des moules de silicones. Toutefois, je dois faire un premier test afin de déterminer combien de silicone que j’aurai de besoin. Le volume est primordial pour cette tâche. Il me faut mesurer la hauteur, la largeur et la profondeur de chacune des pièces. Par la suite, il me faut reprendre les mensurations de chaque partie de la poupée, puis réaliser les moules avec l’aide de planches de styromousse. Pour cette délicate opération, je devrai travaillerai à l’extérieur. Le vaporisateur en aérosol est toxique et néfaste pour les poumons.

A new doll head!

I have decided to create a new head and which has a childish look. Frankly, when I look at her, she’s kind of my favorite at the moment…To be honest, it seems that it is always the last doll that I am working on which is my favorite. The reason for this, I think, it is because I am a maker and I love challenging myself by creating things with my hands, instead of “creating” a connection with them…and move on with excitement with another doll.

J’ai décidé de créer une nouvelle tête plus enfantine. Honnêtement, lorsque je la regarde, je dois confesser, qu’elle est en sorte ma préférée, pour le moment… Pour être honnête, il me semble que c’est toujours la dernière poupée que je travaille qui est ma préférée. La raison à cela, je pense que c’est le fait que j’aime avant tout créer des choses avec mes mains et que je veux éviter de « créer » un lien avec elles… et par la suite, passer à une autre poupée avec excitation.

Ready for photo shoot!

Agnès with Fukiko & Betty!

*WARNING! SOME NUDITY IS FEATURED IN THIS POST. PARENTAL GUIDANCE IS REQUIRED.

Bonjour everyone! Two days ago, my dear Agnès was introduced to you wigged! Speaking of wigs, the hair used was synthetic, I have used it, to mimic natural black hair. Also, I changed my way on making wigs. They now look a bit more natural and I use 85% of the time fine quality human hair and the other 15% is a mix of human and mohair. In a future, I will elaborate more on the subject with a another doll… For tonight’s post, I decided to present Agnès with two of my previous dolls, Fukiko & Betty.

It was important for me to present her and compare her with other dolls that I created in the past, because yes, in my own point of view, Agnès looks different from my old dolls. For one, she’s taller and more linear. Two, her face looks more women like and her features are little bit more “realistic”, in other word less cartoon like! I sculpted her in being aware that I needed to make a more mature doll, rather than childish looking one. Though a few past dolls also look more women like, Rachelle, Aglahé and Beatrice come to mind, however with Agnès, I went more deeply with her sculpt aesthetic!

Agnès the Island Pearl!

Happy Saturday everyone! May I present to you Agnès, the Island Pearl! I named her like this because this doll is very special to me, since she’s a reference of my Haitian roots! She’s also comes right in time for February, the black history month. As I previously said in one post, Agnès is the last doll from 2015, she stands 20 inches tall (50,8 cm) and is made of Cernit polymer clay. The dark part in her stomach, is a left over of polymer clay, Fimo Classic chocolate and since I really do not like waste of any kind, I had to use it! More photos of this beauty will be posted tomorrow! Enjoy!
