WOYWW #94 - Face off
Now I have a replacement mould (Dog ate the last one after one day of ownership) .... there are a whole load of Art Doll faces - some in their naked state made from Puppen (LOL! never gets old) and some that very much were Puppen, but then painted with Black Acrylic paint and brushed over with Tropic Yellow and Emerald Ultra Cosmic Shimmer Mica Powders when still a bit damp. I also need to make more tomorrow to go in orders, as the original ones are now all gone.
Minxy, Puppen is made by Fimo and as far as I know is just flesh coloured - I think Puppen might be German for Puppet, as it is the colour that those mega creep fest dolls are made of! (Apologies, Sandra and others who love the mega creep fest dolls!!!)
These faces are part of the project that I am working on for an article, which is in a very lucy-lastic way related to the test chipboard piece from last week .... in reality it will not look anything like it ..... as I changed my mind along the way.
I also popped my lovely cozy Kindle cover on my desk for you all to see (made by Mum from two rescued skirts - hers was the floral on the inside, and mine the velvet on the outside). It's a bit lopsided as I believe, and I quote "....that velvet was a real beggar, it just would not sew in a straight line ....." - I do feel that it adds to its charm though - plus 'tis squidgy and purple - thanks Mum.
A close up of the faces, one sans make up, and one with a face on:
It's amazing actually, how like a mask it looks painted and buffed with Mica - the results from the two colours was really surprising (they didn't turn out as I would have predicted in each case).
If you have just landed here, and wondering what all this WOYWW stuff is about ..... please head off to Fair Queen Julia's castle to see what all the other lovely WOYWERS are up to.
PS: I have a sticky shift key and it's driving me nuts!!!!!!!!!!
