Oh my gosh...so much pressure is lifted!!! ugh....I hate deadlines....I'm always "just making them"!!@!
Anyway.. the fox doll is complete... I end up really loving her. For a while...she was being a "Brat" and not getting a personality...but she finally came "out".....
She is about 8 inches and she has a sculpted Head, bodice, jointed upper arms, lower legs and tail. Her body and upper legs are a two way stretch bodysuit that I sew up on the machine. This bodysuit fits over the wire armature with all paper clay pieces attached...and then lightly stuffed.
She is an animal dolly with human qualities....(because I believe animals have special qualities that help us see them as human. ) I chose a Fox because I want my Tale to be one of decadence dripping with diamonds, luscious with leopard printed leather and fur, daring with red shiny boots...and some Mysterious with an old frozen Charlotte in hand! This Charlotte is actually a "fake out" from a tiny two part mold my friend Sue Milo made for me! Lucky Me!!! I can now have a frozen Charlotte anytime I want! ha ha and embellish and age it however I want. Life is truly amazing!

Sue Milos Master Molds!
Well...I guess I had to re coup from Christmas! But I'm feeling Strong ..Energized and Excited for New Stuff to Happen! There is a lot of New Creative Energy flowing...and I have Completed a Mermaid Doll!!! Of course Under pressure...because that is good for me!
Her tail is paper clay on a foil and wire armature that is jointed so it can bend. The design in the clay was created by pressing a stamp into the moist clay. Paints and rub-ons were used to create depth...the it was glossed with triple thick. The joints were created with bead caps and findings. I had to send the doll out and hopefully she will be in an Article. I won't say anymore until it happens!!! haha
