THE MERMAIDS OF SILVER SPRINGS


Silver Springs Florida
known for glass bottom boat rides 
and the Creature from the Black Lagoon


but among the beautiful lilies
swim pretty Mermaids 
at least that is what I saw on my recent visit










been awhile since I created soft sculpture dolls
but I felt a need to express myself in cloth
these two are in my shop

NEW DOLL MOLD FINISHED


setting up my fairy sculpture
Titania
for molds


4 days and the result is good
few bubbles and chips
the sculpture was soggy due to a coating of lacquer, or perhaps 
Florida humidity 
experimenting with different sealers
 will be going back to enamels, they protect better on paper clay
I toss out all my sculptures once they have be made into molds
the sculpture is never usable again


 for the last 5 years I have made many molds
this is number 10 that will be hopefully usable
part of the porcelain process creating molds
I like to have lots of dolls to cast
now Titania dries for a month
another exciting aspect of creating in 
porcelain
