A good swap can bring out creativity in ways that a single project doesn’t. You need to find something that is reproducible enough for many items (in this case 80) but still leaves room for expression and some individuality. I don’t want to just cookie…

This week I went in a different direction. I wanted to try some more jointed dolls and I am getting stuck on dressing dolls. I really like the sculpting part better, maybe I need to find a partner who likes to sew – but never mind that for now. To add to…

This week I was just messing around with some little dolls and decided to go with an old theme – fairy tales – so little Red Riding Hood. She is about 6 inches tall, stands on her own and is completely poseable. Her face was easier to do after doing so…

Week 4 and a real change. This week I decided to go goth and let my inner creepiness just hand out. Carina is all polymer clay except her hair, which is lambs wool, but she is the goriest doll I’ve done. And she was fun. You can’t see it in this picture…

I didn’t get any dolls done this week – I was in a community museum show near my house. I displayed 5 of my dolls. I was nervous enough to show them off in public, imagine my surprise when I got 2 commissions due to being in this shop. Add that to my…

I took a class last year to make a (mostly) cloth doll – well at least to me. Originally we used paper clay instead of  polymer clay -that’s just how it was taught. I decided to remake another one. I have a little more experience on the templates – that…

I really like the progress I made on this doll. The face sculpt came easily, the hands worked out well and she even stands on her own. She was the first doll I tried that I made so large; her head fits right in my palm. The head worked up nicely and I…

I went bigger this time with some really good results. Using a tutorial on Craftedu.com to make granny bust, this is my result. She still isn’t finished, I need to find something to mount the bust on, she turned out larger than I expected, her head is…

This weekend I am going to Clayathon in Atlantic City for 4 days of claying and demos with friends but I didn’t forget about making a doll. This is just a quick post as I hurry out, I learned I need to think about the final outcome beforehand. I made this…

The first thing we notice when we see someone is their face, the same holds true for dolls.  As humans we see faces everywhere – they seem so simple. Trying to make a face that works is my biggest challenge. One solution is to stick to very stylized…

Story
Tagline
I was always like this
Introduction
My story goes like this, no wait - maybe...Well it's full of false starts and mistakes and lots of love and laughter and a great family. I have always been very introverted but I have a big mouth sometimes. Kind of nerdy and I love crafting and making things. My biggest beef is dishonesty. If we cut through the bullshit, life could be a lot easier.
