Lady’s outfits…

Olivia & Estelle

Good morning! I’m finally moving forward with my lady’s outfits. I want to create simple and contemporary clothes, if possible, with recycled materials (fabrics). Speaking of recycling, over the past few years, I have been trying to do my part regarding the environment subject. It is a sensitive subject these days, but it cannot be avoided. You see, during one of my previous posts, I wanted and still want to produce my dolls in a ‘small’ production. But I am ambivalent regarding this issue, especially the environmental one. However, with a small limited edition, I feel more comfortable and less … Guilty. But, honestly, I want to create a small production of resin dolls and will go with the demand. See you in my next post!

Bon matin! J’avance enfin avec les accroutements de mes demoiselles. Je souhaite de créer des vêtements simples et contemporains, si possible avec des matières (tissus) recyclées. En parlant de recyclage, depuis quelques années, j’essaie de faire ma part en matière d’environnement. C’est un sujet sensible de nos jours, mais qu’on ne peut éviter. Voyez vous, lors de ma puplication du , je souhaitais et je souhaite toujours produire mes poupées en une ‘’petite’’ production. Mais je suis ambivalente par rapport à cette question et particulièrement celles sur l’environnement. Toutefois, avec une petite série limitée, je me sens plus à l’aise et moins…coupable. Mais, honnêtement, je veux réaliser moi-même une petite production de poupées de résine et j’irai avec la demande. À bientôt!

Preparing for assembly

Yes! I am ready and preparing for the assembly of my two beauties and it was about time! I need to be careful to not damage the painting and especially with their faces. After years on making dolls, I’m always having a funny feeling when I see on my dolls coming alive. It’s an exciting one though and I just can’t wait to make the next one!

Ouais! Je suis prête et je me prépare pour l’assemblage de mes deux beautés et il était temps! Je dois faire attention à ne pas endommager la peinture et particulièrement celle sur leurs visages. Après des années à fabriquer des poupées, je suis toujours un drôle de sentiment lorsque je vois l’une d’elles prendre vie. Toutefois, c’est excitant et je suis impatiente pour prochaine!

They come alive!

Here is a brief overview of the heads that I’m working on. I like what I see, but I would have preferred a much better lighting and more particularly the natural light which is in my opinion the best! Well! I must leave you and absolutely get back to work and complete these two heads!

Voici un bref aperçu des têtes que je travaille. J’aime bien ce que je vois, mais j’aurais aimé un bien meilleur éclairage et plus particulièrement la lumière naturelle qui est à mon humble avis le meilleur! Bon je vous laisse, je dois absolument me remettre au boulot et terminer ces deux têtes!

My moment of preparation

Each artist has a unique way of working and that suits him or her and I am no exception. I like structure, organization and preparation. Over the years, I developed a working method that allows me to be effective, especially when it comes time to paint a doll. This working method has become sort of a ritual. My work surface is divided as follows: my paints and mediums are on the left, my brushes and sponges on the right and in the center, a mirror and the doll that is ready to be transformed. The atmosphere in which I work must be somewhat “quiet”, well lit and airy. But music is a must: I can’t live without it! It allows me to dream, visualize better my creative tastes… and even to invent my own stories! I avoid all drinks or food in my work area: in my opinion, it’s dangerous and unprofessional. Everything must be in its place and I try as much as possible, although I find it sometimes difficult, to use what I need to work with.

Chaque artiste possède une façon unique de travailler et qui lui convient et moi j’ai la mienne. J’aime la structure, l’organisation et la préparation. J’ai développé au fil des années une méthode de travail qui me permet d’être efficace, surtout lorsque me vient le temps de peinturer une poupée. Cette méthode de travail est devenue en quelque sorte un genre de rituel. Ma surface de travail est divisée comme ceci : mes peintures et médiums sont situées à gauche, mes pinceaux et éponges à droite et au centre un miroir et la poupée qui est prête à être transformée. L’ambiance dans lequel j’aime travailler doit-être en quelque sorte “calme”, bien éclairée et aérée. Mais la musique est un must : je ne peux vivre sans elle! Elle me permet me de rêver, de mieux visualiser mes goûts créatifs…et même d’inventer mes propres histoires! J’évite toutes boissons ou nourritures dans ma place de travail : à mon avis, c’est dangereux et non professionnel. Chaque chose doit-être à sa place et j’essaie le plus que possible, quoique je trouve cela parfois difficile,  d’utiliser ce que j’ai besoin pour travailler.

2013 Dolls in video part 1

Happy Sunday doll fanatics! I’m very thrilled to show you my second video, but this time, it’s for my 2013 Dolls. Actually, there will be two videos for 2013 dolls and maybe two or three for the dolls made in 2014: since I made a lot of them during that year. Making these videos are fun, though they do take time to create, they are a good way to do promotions. Thanks everybody and stay in touch for my next videos and…more dolls.

Faye the baby face!

Hi everyone! Fall has truly arrived and we feel it here in Montreal. The weather has only reached 12 degrees (53,6 Fahrenheit) today! But fall is such a beautiful season: we eat better, sleep better, the colors of the leaves are inspirational for creativity! My minds just can’ t stop creating, especially during this season. Actually, I like going to the park were I can sketch or write things…though my mind never stops creating through out the rest of the year, Fall keeps my mind grounded, calm and of course, I think that  it as to do with the temperature or the shorter days. Now, let me introduce you to Faye, yes like Faye Dunaway. Faye is my second doll created earlier this year. She was created in a mix of Prosculpt (baby) and Cernit (flesh) polymer clay. She is the first doll with Swarovski crystal handmade eyes that I made. Since most of my previous dolls were young women, I sculpted her to have a baby face on purpose,with all her facial features sculpted closer and with bigger eyes. What is particular with her, is that she’s the tallest doll that I have ever made: 52 cm (20 ½ inches) tall! Though I really love big dolls, for me, Faye is way too tall! All along while I was molding her, I kept asking myself is will she turn out OK after baked…because of the weight of the clay, I was constantly worried. However, Faye turned out fine, in fact, she was better than I thought. She is a bit heavy, but not as a few of my previous dolls. I think that it is due to the fact that I changed the way that I do my doll armature: aluminium wire instead of heavy metal wire. Before ending this post, since Faye is part of a three part post. Tonight, I will only show pictures of her both before and after sanded and painted. Thanks/Merci to everyone and we’ll see each other tomorrow.
