Create Clay Hats and Crowns!
Wednesday, March 17, 2010
This was a hectic two weeks. Every time I tried to work on something I had to get out of my shop for rediculous things, like make dinner...or pick up a kid...or SHOP Rite...UGH!
Anyway...I got through my two leapardy dolls. "GOT THROUH" means I forced myself. I loved making their crowns and painting them leapord...they are my favorite crowns to date because I'm so excited about the new painting techniques that I am learning. (I also made Tiny square polymer buttons and painted the "tiniest" leapard print on them...then added a tiny diamond to each one.) But i sculpted these two faces a couple of months ago...and I think I have changed since then...so I think it was hard to make these two dolls work....They are "nice" thats about it Just not WOWed!!! ...haha! (feeling critical!)
Check out the dolls...Actually, the little boots i did one step crackle on...I do love how "Vintage Old" they look...I will definately use this technique more. I guess each new doll...you learn something different!
Now that I completed them...I am excited for the next new faces..that I already have in my head.! They will be my "SWEETS" dolls......
