Sweet Pea

So this is the other doll we did in our workshops with Cyndi Mahlstadt. This one is done with a press mold for the head and using Apoxie Clay. I now know the difference between Apoxie Clay and Apoxie Sculpt.  You still mix both parts of the clay or sculpt together, but the clay hardens in a short period of time and is rock hard (I know because I heard a shriek and a clunk and the rolling sound, as one little head flew off someone's doll and rolled across the floor). The sculpt on the other hand is an air dry product.

Fortunately I was really good at taking my time to prepare the mold properly and didn't have any fix ups to do when the little head came out of the mold.  I did another head will sleeping eyes, and on that one, I pressed the cheeks together a little to make more of a laughing expression and I gave the nose a little bit of an upturn. Here is Sweet Pea. She has small wings as I just felt it suited her that way. Perhaps the next one will have big flashy ones, only time will tell.

Sweet Peas body is done the same way as the Garden Fairy, but not so many layers of padding. She is a wire armature and then draped with batting and cheesecloth for the clothing.  She's very tiny, only about 9" sitting, but so cute.
