Hi everyone, I've been working and not showing up on the forum much! Here is a pic of my newest sculpt, the 14 inch/ 35cm lady.
Thank you, Nanyalin, for your patience. I have decided to focus on larger dolls than the 10 1/2 inch little girls, I have such difficulty with the small size and getting the tension of the tiny springs just right. If anyone wants one, I may make one, but I won't make them just for "fun." My nerves need break. I have a habit of working tiny. In college, I always painted small. 8x10 inches, 10x12, etc. Then I started painting sets for the community theater, painting in feet instead of inches! I keep saying I should sculpt larger, it gives more room for expression in the painting. Marina B's larger Enchanted Doll blows me away! A does the Bidoll 18" that sold in February, beautiful work!!!
Pretty much as soon as I cast a new sculpt, I'm ready to start sculpting something new. I'm trying to decide what to do next! I want to learn silver casting and make some accessories, maybe. I'm working on improving my (non-existant) sewing skills. I'm always blown away by the talent I see popping up on this forum, keep working, everyone, you're all an inspiration.
You are very welcome, Kelly! I can understand about the tiny. YOur small girls are so lovely, tho! The teenager body is super cute. But I must say, that your new girl is so much more my style! And I can't yet believe I will own one <3.
I have been a recluse lately, busy with children... but I am preparing for a doll show nest year, I have some new girls to share. Here are a few, and if you see my facebook page, you have probably seen a few that I have yet to photo with my good camera, so- better and more pics of them to come. Again, thanks, everyone, for kind words and support over the years!!!!
Love the first photo with the moss, so beautiful! (I was going to moss-photo too, but there is snow in Finland now -need to wait for it to melt ) And love the antlers!! Cute! Are they made of silver clay? (I saw those photos on Flickr but after the change on flickr, it has been pain to look, comment or like photos there -at least with ipad. And it reloads the page constantly too. Are any of you having problems with the new flickr?)
