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.

Here comes Jaya! This Indian name has many meanings, in Sanskrit Jaya means victory; it is also the name of a famous mountain in Indonesia, Puncak Jaya actually. However, the true meaning of this name is a secret woman, who is reserved and careful. She does not show to much of her emotions or her feelings and prefers to keep cold headed. She is also very determined, mature and will work rigorously to get through administrative procedures to achieve her goals. As some of you may have notice or who know India very well, I decided to choose a girl from the south instead of the north, meaning someone darker who lives in the Tamil Nadu region, which is closer to Sri Lanka. My doll Jaya came alive in late October of 2014 and was sculpted from a mix of different brands of polymer clay: Prosculpt, Living Doll and Fimo Soft. In my opinion, this mix was to soft and malleable while I was working with it and had to work quickly with it since it become sticky in a short period of time. The next step was to let the clay rest for two days; otherwise I could not work with it properly and would lose patience with a soft clay, which did not permit me to mold specific details: nose, fingers, toes, eyes and ears. Sadly, I sensed something would go wrong with this doll and at the end I was right, because a few fissures appeared on her body, especially on her arms and behind the neck. You can be sure that I will never be using this combination of this mixes of clays ever again, though it was a nice try…and really do love the way I sculpted her. To finish with this post, her green handmade glass eyes were made by me and her wig is made out of black human hair.  Thanks for your interest in my dolls, all you doll lovers!

You may have notice there is a huge crack around her neck…this is due to the mix of (fimo soft/ prosculpt & Living Doll) and it was not a good one! Because of his softness, it could not support the strong wire armature that I made for this doll. It is so sad, since I really do like this doll sculpt, but one thing is clear, I can’t use this mix! I want high quality and the best for my dolls!
