Doll making

I had to let these little dolls sitting patiently while I got busy with other projects, but they keep me company and I love to see them sitting pretty by my desk on top of a paint jar, that's how tiny they are!.
So, one of them is patiently sitting, waiting for her hair :o)

I have some sweet news for the fall... can't wait to tell you! ♥♥♥

A link with beautiful doll faces

I love faces. Painting them and sculpting them.
This September I have been running a fun challenge called 29 faces, for everyone interested in perfecting their craft or practicing new things, we all in group fly together and share, cheer and enjoy hundreds and hundreds of faces.
Since I left in the back burner my sculpting, and I have this challenge going on, I have been feeling the "clay itch" again, so before I grab my tools I'd like to share this beautiful link full of doll faces in clay, in their site: (The photo is not mine)

Over the mother's day weekend we went to San Diego and one of the fun things we did was visiting the Mingei Museum, where besides the awesome masks and the Huyler's chocolate exhibit, they had an antique doll's exhibit!

I want to share some pictures of my favorite ones:
The following three dolls are ceramic and cloth, from Germany:

Sleepy blog

Hey there! Just around the time of my last post here, my life had a major hiccup and things turned a bit terrible. The rest of the year was too stressing for me to sit and make a doll so I have been away of this little blog for months.

This new year I am planning to concentrate more on painting than dolls, so chances are I will not be posting often either, but if I come across a fun tutorial or something interesting doll related, I will link to it here.

Look on the past postings, I have a great collection of links of many doll makers and awesome doll stuff.

I have however,  some adorable tiny dolls listed in my Etsy shop (see left bar)
If you want to drop me a line go ahead, I read all the mail! :o)

Hasta la vista!

How to add arms

This is an easy and fun tutorial on how to add arms to a doll.
My model is a fabric doll made by JasmoonButerfly
The arms are paperclay, but they can be polymer as well, just make sure you make some little holes when you are sculpting them.
 You need:
-A doll and her limbs with a perforation
-Beads a bit larger than the holes in the limbs.
-Strong thread.
-Large needle.

We start by getting a strong thread or floss. In this case I am using gold acrylic floss, and tiny beads in a color coordinated blue.

Insert needle from the back, pull out from the shoulder area.

Pick up the bead and and push the needle through the doll into the other shoulder. Make sure they are even: 

Pick up the other bead, push thread back ion the hole, and insert in the shoulder towards the back again.
Make a good knot and add a bit of glue.

Here she is, all dolled-up.
