I have been introduced to the wonderful world of beaded art dolls and spirit dolls. I am hooked and am a proud member of the yahoo group BEADED ART DOLLS . These are the first dolls that I beaded. They are a tribute to my BFF Deb who lives in Southern California. I had a good time beading them, but I realized that if I am going to do more dolls, I am going to have to acquire some faces!
Years ago I dabbled in clay. At the time little creatures made of polymer clay were pretty popular. Classes in making clay figures seemed like a good way to spend quality time with my daughter, who was about 12 at the time.
So, off I go to find clay face molds. Well, making faces from molds went pretty well, but that certainly is not ME.
The face at the top is freeformed. That will be the direction I will go when making more faces. She will also be the face I use when creating my next beaded art doll for the "Spread the Love" challenge/swap for the Beaded Art Doll group. (I won't swap, but I am looking forward to making the doll.) This weekend I will design the body. I must remember to keep it small!
I am becoming more comfortable showing the beaded items I made, so I am sure that I will post a pic when she is done.
Thanks for visiting. Please come back.
