Started work on a new BJD!

Hi everyone! 
  I hope you are all handling the summer well!  It has been hot here!  I am very happy to have started on a new project a gofun bjd.  This one is "Alice", she will be 18 inches tall when finished.  I am trying to finish her within in the next month so she will be ready for the Dollery's fall show.  I would also like to sculpt a Mad Hatter to accompany her, but I don't know if I will have the time...so right now I will just concentrate on Alice.  As of today I have her head fully sculpted and finished.  This is the way it looks sculpted in the stone clay.  After I have the rest of the body done I will coat it in several layers of gofun.  Gofun is a pigment made of ground oyster shell...when it is applied in thin layers to a doll it looks like the finest porcelain.  This is a very time consuming process, that is why I say I don't think I will have time to make a Mad Hatter as well.  I will post pictures here on my blog as I work.  Stay cool everyone!

**SALE** Happy Fourth of July Everyone!

  It has been a busy Spring for me and it is shaping up into a busy Summer too!  I will not be attending any shows this year, as I am busy filling orders and working on a new proto-type for Resin BJDs!  The new resin BJDs will most likely be released this fall or winter, as it is a long process between prototype and finished resin bjd!  I am excited about being able to offer resin editions of my dolls,  I will post pictures here on my blog of the prototype and master-cast as I get further into the process.
  I also want to announce that I am running a HOLIDAY SALE in my Etsy shop, Turtle Child Studio.  To recieve the sale discount type in PROMO10 in the coupon box at check out, and recieve 10% off your entire purchase, including all TUTORIALS (even the new advanced BJD tutorial!)  Hurry, this sale runs through today, 7/3/12 and ends midnight on 7/5/12!  I don't usually have sales, but want to give an Independence Day Gift to all my loyal customers out there!  Have a Safe and Happy Holiday!
