Need to clean the studio today...contemplating a new sculpt!
I finally got my blog all set up...now I need to clean my studio mess from my last doll and put away all my new supplies! Tonight I will start my next new doll! I have decided she will be the same size and scale as my last doll...Marie Therese (about 13"). This time I have decided she will be from the 1860's...I ordered some reproduction civil war fabric (and just got it in)...and have been studying period photographs and clothing designs from the period (the photos at left are a couple of my reference photos). I have also ordered a mourning brooch from the period in her size and have decided to make a "holding doll" in the Izannah Walker style. I recently signed up for an Izannah Walker online class, that I was too busy to really take part in because I had to finish several commission pieces as well as working on dolls for an ODACA (Original Doll Artist Council of America) review. Marie Therese, was sculpted for the second round of judging. I will know sometime in April how I did. I am being optomistic, and have decided to get an early start on the final two dolls for the third and final round of judging which will take place in July at the ODACA convention. Crossing my fingers I will make it that far!! ;-) --Kori
