My little fairy doll.

 I have been taking a doll making class for the last 2 days at The Artsy Soul. Here is the little fairy doll I created from scratch(She really does have hands they are just hidden by the skirt.. We got to mold the entire doll and put it together.

 The face began with a tin foil lump and ball of clay. It was amazing watching the face come to life as we added layers of clay. 
Lots of body parts we sculpted.
 Time for sanding in layers from rough grain to smooth micro mesh for polishing.
Painting the face and body.
 Fitting it all together.
 Wiring the arms and legs. We used bead caps and jeweled spacers.

Adding the hair and sewing the clothes.

 Almost finished. I still need to paint her shoes and add her accessories.
It was a great class. Colleen the owner is a wonderful teacher with lots of great techniques to share. This was my first time taking a sculpting class and I can't wait to play again. I was lucky enough to take the class with my friend Zandra. Her fairy is so adorable and whimsical.  

Here is Zandra with her doll and her doll below.

So thats what I have been up to. Hoping to play a bit more and finish her tomorrow. 

Thanks for stopping in and have a lovely day.  Angela

TIOT new challenge

The new challenge is up at Try it on Tuesday and the theme is 'Its all about the eyes'.
So we want to see some eyes in your project.

This month we  have a new sponsor " Realy Reasonable Ribbons " who are generously  offering  a $15 gift voucher to our winner this month

For my project I made an ATC

The stamp is  from my "Across the miles" set from "The Stamp Man"  in England. The tree branches are made using a mix of  shrubbery stamps and branches. I also used  book pages and burlap. Some sparkle using a gel pen was added along with some glossy accents to the eyes.

Now is you hop on over to the Try it on Tuesday blog you can see some more great inspiration from my team mates and enter your project. 

See you there! 
Thanks for stopping in and have a great day.
