This is definitely time for fairs. Up here, there are everywhere, every weekend. I just love them! I love the sounds, the colors and the various activities going on. When looking at the list of categories, I stopped at the dolls because I just finished a doll that I think would blow away the competition or at least get a few judges scratching their heads wondering where this one came from. lol
Her name is Queen and she is part of an online doll-making course I've been taking. Her body, arms and head are made of wire. Her face is sculpted polymer and her dress is an experiment I call polymerized fabric.
I love sculpting faces and see the expressions they have when I'm done. I know I should work of controlling the expressions with a turned up cheek and smile, frowning brows and such. I so enjoy letting the clay decide what it will look like and the comment it will make on the world using only an expression. Do you have a crafted item that you never know what it will look like before it's done? I love those the best and the freedom it gives.
