Projects made with my new Charlotte Dolls and Parts!
As many of you know, I have been working with different forms of clay and dolls over the past 8 months, experimenting with all kinds of clays, texture mediums and molds. I usually make molds of various old dolls I have, in full mold and half molds.

Then the process begins with filling and base washing. My painted doll pieces are sold with pre-painted faces and coated with a porcelain paint glaze for durability and a bisque look. Depending on the project will depend on which mold I use.
Here is a sample of a captured fairy assemblage called: The Doll Soiree Carriagewhere the fairy inside was created with a layered image and one of my doll heads using the bisque formula, and the wheels of this assemblage were adorned with the doll heads.The Doll Soiree Carriage!The Doll Soiree Carriage!3In this next project I have done something similar only in a Christmas wire ornament which I call: The Queen of Candyland!

I've been a design addict for this past year, I keep going all day and night when I get this way, I don't stop, lol.

I'm always trying new ways to 3-d a project...I love small vignettes, they tell a story of what's inside your mind at the time they are created.

I have more doll heads and projects coming next week.

Have a magical weekend!
XO!
Lisa!
