PORCELAIN VERSUS FLUMO


dolls created in porcelain
poured slip in plaster molds
and fired in a kiln many times


Flumo dolls
air dry slip poured in plaster molds 
air dried and painted
also called cold porcelain
has a heavier feel



same mold
 like how the doll shrinks in porcelain
so tiny


I collect both types of dolls and have used both medias
do love the Flumo
but nothing feels like porcelain

GARDEN CREATURES OF SUMMER


After sanding and drilling and fitting


face ups and blushing





my favorite part stringing and playing


I really like my little dear
she will become a prototype for a porcelain mold
sadly I will prime her like a mummy


but she has gorgeous gazelle legs 



now fairy gowns next and soft hair

SCULPTING MARATHON


Seems I had a sculpting marathon this week
three new ball jointed dolls
fairy creatures


this is what happens when I'm mulling over the aspect of resin dolls
sculpting gives me way to much time to think
LOL
