Feathered wings for my dolls

                            This is a little tutorial on the way I make feathered wings and use magnets to do it with. The wing you see here was made fast and has not been shaped and trimmed, but you can get the idea of what the wings look like.

Making Angel wings for a ball jointed doll

                                            First get 4 very strong magnets at a craft store.
                                  Place 2 inside and a corresponding magnet on the outside to hold in place.
                                           Get a 2 part epoxy putty and mix them together.
                             Smash the putty up against the inside magnets gently, let dry.
                       Place paper clay on the outside magnets and shape. Make little holes in them.
           When the paper clay is dry put 3 wires in the holes and glue with hot glue.
              I make a lot of holes because you never know quite where you want to put the
               the wires till the last minute.
                                     Glue a light airy material onto the wires with hot glue.
                                Then one by one put a dot of hot glue and then add a feather on the
                                               Like so!

                                      MY NEW DEMON SERIES
                                           The first casts from my new molds I made I'm pretty happy with them
                                       even though they usually are no good due to soap in the mold but these 
                                       were fine.....very scarey!

  A friend asked to see a few of my 3 part molds. She is just beginning to make molds and it can be a bit confusing as to where to put parting lines. Parting lines are where the mold pieces part from each other so you can take the prototype out. Sometimes a mold piece can get stuck on a part of the prototype and that's called an undercut.

   Oh my, it's been a while. Here is my new doll on ebay. She is an angel named Gabriella and she is an original doll made out of porcelain.

  My little lucky
Celtic mermaid. I really need to build a little beach set to take pictures on if I'm going to be doing mermaids. I need to find some rocks and drift wood.

  I've been working on a Irish mermaid to put on ebay and I've been wondering what kind of a story if any I will give her. I will post a picture tomorrow when I've totally finished her. My Dad died yesterday and I've been working in kind of a slow motion. I still can't believe he's gone.

  Well I have started to sell a few dolls and that is exciting!  I went to the IDEX show where everyone was showing their dolls and I'm amazed at all the many different styles that emerge from the creative inspirations and personalities of the artists. I too believe I have a certain style developing though I feel at times I am a bit all over the place. I just need to go with the flow and not get overly concerned with trying to "make" anything happen, it will come.


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.
