heat gun is such a cool sculpting tool !!!!

Ok , a heat gun is normally used for embossing but this great tool is also great for making dolls . let me explain how it works (for me :-))  : When I make complex sculptures I need to work in several stages  and every stage needs to be baked off so it would not collapse while sculpting on it ...and sometimes its just for baking a single leg ..what a waist of time and energy . Well, the heat gun gives you the possibilty to bake off a a precise spot without using the oven and allows you to bake the arm you just... [Lire la suite]

hello , I continued working on this lady . I made the lower body with flat shoe laces , soaked in bronze coloured Powertex which I turned around the lower body base .

The upperbody was painted with the pink wall paint and given extra swung with mettalic paint ( violet) . I also used this paint on little details like the necklaces and head cover ... Painting the face features ...and adding flowery... [Lire la suite]

WIP of Lady BIJOU

  Hello dear friends, After two full years I finally picked up my courage and my clay !! I start off making creations as gifts and “give aways” before I start selling or exposing anything . I’m very happy with my never-ending imagination and unique style but my sculpting level could get better . So this year will be a learning process in which I hope I will get better sculpting results and get that peace of mind and body I’m still searching for . OK, stop talking and start sculpting ahhahaha . As usual, I start with the... [Lire la suite]
