Papier Mache Dollies!
The Cupie Ballet! Re-visiting a few old friends: My papier mache dollies! We all know how much I love vintage dollies such as carnival cupies, kewpies and charlottes. A few years ago I started playing around with various papier mache clay recipes until I found the one I liked, then used that mixture to fill in old tin molds and ones which I made to make some papier mache creations. These dollies are the result!Sundae Sprinkleton! 6Meet Sundae Sprinkleton!Sundae Sprinkleton! 5Meet Sweetie Candypops!Sweetie Candypops 4Sweetie Candypops 2Sweetie Candypops 6Meet Polly Moonlight!Polly's Moonlight Ballet! 6Polly's Moonlight Ballet! 5Meet the Cupie of Love seen pictured with Polly MoonlightCupie of Love! 5Cupie of Love! 3Meet Ginger of Ginger's Cake Party Box!Ginger's Cake Party Box! 5Ginger's Cake Party Box! 2Meet Misty Candyreef!Mer-Kewpie Queen! 2
