rose Girl




I have beeen working on a new doll...she is somber....i wanted her tto be covered in roses...but she is looking kind of "fishy" ! Her long red hair is Mermaid-y but she already has legs....I really have to tthink about this...i keep seeing a fiish on her head...so again...she will be what she wants to be in the end.
I have dyed the long goatheair red and slightly used a mini flat iron to shine the hair but not take out all of the pretty natural wave. after i wig her, using fabri tac very lightly! i wet the hair around the head and hold it n place with tin foil while it dries..this helps me kepp the hair closer to the head when i am wanting a "tighter" look.
I do like her face though...compared to the last fairy..that face just gave me a hard time from the start....this one i was connected to as soon as i sculpted her..she flowed from me...I know you know whatt I mean.... ok anyway...i found a new Cool JAPANESE clay called HALF CILLA ! It is air dry, kind of like paper clay, but YET moist and spongy, like premeir but easier to work with....I sell both of these clays on eBay..but i am loving the Half ciilla..i love that i can add a little bit of cheap craft paint ... beautiful shades of these paints..CAN REALLY create pretty clay. This clay works beautifully with molds...pops out so easy and i get great detail...it dries so lightweight TOO!
also...I want her to hhave wings...here is a thought...but I saw a tutorila by Carrie shoen that i may try instead....I'll be exploring lots of Wing options

Oh Colleen,
She is just beautiful!
Now, this Half Cilla air dry clay, I was not aware of this one.. Did you also use it for your doll? She is perfection.. I just love your style.

You know Carie also? I am blessed to call her my friend for several years.
Oh yes, she has great tutorials.
I have to say that I feel she is one of the most creative artists around..

Thank you so much for coming over to leave such a sweet note about Fredrick.
blessings,
Penny

Such a sweet and hwistful little face. Thank you for the tip about drying the hair to keep it close to the face. The clay sounds intriguing. I've neve really thought about adding paint to the paperclays to make flesh tones, but I can see how it would keep the skin one colour, like using a polymer clay. (Without the dread moonies. Ugh! Love air dry clay! No moonies!)
