Dolls in progress for class



I will be teaching Tiny Dolls at the Purple Petals Studio in Maspeth NY on July 10th and 11th , with the help of A fabulous Cloth and  Clay Doll Artist Heather Brauner.  Last week, Heather and I got together to create some new dolls for the class......Heather is actually working on a tiny "Prim" doll that will be crackled!  Cant wait to see her completed!

So these are my  2 new Tiny paperclay Fairy dolls for the "occasion"!!!   I think they will be "sweets" dolls inspired by Talented Polymer Clay Artist Amber Dawn!  Amber makes "Amazing" miniatures and charms...lots of beautiful Tiny "sweets" and cupcakes..Yum!  I have taken  polymer caning and sweets classes from Amber, and I will try to apply some of  what she taught me to these dolls.  I'll see what happens!!! haha!

I found some great fabrics that remind me of taffy and chocolate and Caramel....Mmmmm! 

I have included some of the steps we will be going through to create The Tiny Paperclay dolls .  I'm So looking forward to this class!!! These New York girls are Creative and Fun to work with!   Dori, the owner of the Studio, and "Charm Girl"  Amber Dawn will also be Participating ...how cool is that!?
