Digital Photo Madness

I picked up several Stampington publications with their recent sale, including the Spring 2012 Somerset Digital Studio. I stopped on page 22, with Susan Tuttle’s article on iPhonography.

Needless to say, I have gone quite mad playing with various apps. Here are a few of my creations, featuring my Dollshe Bernard, Ethan. His faceup and outfit are by me. Expect more of this sort of thing.

I used Aviary and Pixl-r-matic to edit these images.

Happy crafting.

Sargent SculpIt Air Dry Clay

My first foray into sculpting with air drying clay. Now I wish I had taken a puppetry class back in college. Not bad and it might look better painted and finished, but I think for the next one, I’ll take it down a notch to primitive style.

Art Doll 

Hi ho friends.

After enjoying the art doll mini class with Tam, I went in search of a new class for sculpting the entire figure and found Art Dolls with Adele Po. 

This figure has been a work in progress for at least a month. Air dry clays take 24 hours to dry, so there are a lot of breaks between stages. I made a second head after the first was too large for the body and made new arms in order to securely attach them to the body. I still have to glue the doll to the base, but I think that will be easier after I finish painting.

The figure stands about 11.5 inches tall. The scale overall is too small for me but that’s just the way this one worked out. I plan to make more of the art dolls, and have a mermaid in progress, so stay tuned for more art  dolls.

Today, I assembled her and applied the final coat of gesso. Once dry, I will get to work on painting and outfit making.

Adele suggested having a character in mind, but I prefer to work without a plan and see who emerges. One if my classmates commented that the doll knows stuff she doesn’t, so I will create a sage of some kind. Time for research!

Without further ado, here is the As Yet Unnamed Wise Woman art doll.

What’s new in your art world? I’d love to hear about your latest project.

Happy creating! 🎨
