New Listings – 6.1.15

I have two new dolls available that I posted last night for sale in my Etsy shop! I know I say I’m quite proud of them when I post them, but honestly I DO feel a great deal of pride in creating something beautiful and different. I’ve been working on marketing them more and sharing them with others who appreciate the medium as it were and am glad that they can be shared.

 

So without further ado…my two new girls!

As always, my dolls are stripped of their factory paint and refaced with quality Faber-Castell and Prismacolor brand watercolor pencils and soft chalk pastels. They are sealed multiple times and in multiple layers with Mr. Super Clean UV Matte Sealant and Liquitex Gloss Varnish. Hair is usually washed and conditioned, then restyled with either a boil perm, boil straightening, braiding or cut. I’ve recently started to apply eyelashes as well for a three-dimensional depth and on occasion have given the dolls body blushing and/or painted nails. Dolls can also be customized and requests for commissions are accepted!!

Two New Dolls!

So this weekend I was able to finish up and photograph two new dolls that I was able to upload to my Etsy shop for purchase! This weeks offering happen to be a Ghoulia Yelps that includes a reroot of her hair as well as an Abbey Bomidable with her nails painted using O.P.I. nail lacquer.

As for both, I am quite proud of them! I love Abbeys large eyes and Ghoulia to me is just beautiful.

On both the factory paint was removed and their faces repainted using Prismacolor watercolor pencils and Faber-Castell pastels. Both were sealed using Mr. Super Clear UV Matte spray and glossed with Liquitex Gloss Varnish on their eyes and lips.

For Abbey, she was a pretty straight forward rework. Repainted, hair was washed, conditioned and restyled (though the glitter fibers in her hair did make for an interesting amount of lift!) and I also painted her talons with O.P.I nail laquer in OPI Ink and topped with Seche Vite top coat.

Abbey Bomidable Repaint

 

For Ghoulia, as I pointed out before, her hair had been cut by a previous owner and she was devoid of her bangs so she was in need of a reroot. For my first go at it I’m quite pleased and wanted to style her hair in a manner that would be simple enough that should her owner wish, it could be restyled with ease. She was rerooted with Dollyhairs nylon doll hair in Blueberry Muffin, Dragonfly and Poison Ivy. I also gave Ghoulia a light body blushing.
