doing what I can

I've made hands and feet today to go with my BJD body. I also made another head which is quite similar to the last head. I'm going to use the model pictures I found yesterday on the internet tomorrow as inspiration instead of leaving it to my own imagination because I always do the same face over and over again.

Found her!

I just want to say that I found the model I was looking for and that's Rachel Williams! I do love her face, wow. Now I can rest a while, get the body together and then these faces are the ones I would like to start with. Goody, looking forward to the future!

Labor Day Weekend!

OK, can't do much more until I receive the "flexwax" molding material I ordered from Dickblick. I've been practicing doing faces until then, when I get the wax I will mold and refine the body. I have been looking up models from the past that I want as inspiration but I don't know their names which makes it a little difficult.I did find one of them, Filippa Hamilton. I think I gravitate towards models that are unisex, ones that would look equally good as guys as they do girls. That's it!

Well the progress is coming right along! I've got to start adding pictures to this blog! I've almost finished a prototype in sculpy firm and sprayed it with clear gloss acrylic. I want to make molds of it in silicone, I had one failed attempt (silicone leaked out yuk!)so now I must do it again. I want to make copies of the proto so I can keep refining it. The best way to get better at something is to do it over and over again, I believe they call it practice?


About Me

My photo
I have studied painting and sculpture and still enjoy doing both though sculpting seems to have the dominant spot in my life right now. I have won Doll magazine's "Award of excellence" two years in a row 2013-2014, in the artist ball jointed doll category. I have also won "best of show" this past year at the Orlando Museum of Art.
