I finally took the time to take relatively decent photos of a couple of dolls I've made. The first one is for an art trade with one of the undergraduate students I met here at NSU. She had this painting that I loved but had trouble pricing it. She saw one of my dolls and I offered a trade. Of course, she picked my fave so I offered to make one similar for her. I have not titled it yet, but it is inspired by corset piercing. I think I may have shown y'all the original before, but these pics are better than what I posted before:
In case you were wondering, I made the stand myself...in the future I think I will paint them white though. I also made the jump rings myself because at the time I couldn't find any the right size. I originally used some of doll artist Patti Culea's patterns but I have since tweaked them a bit to make them my own. These are about 21" tall, not including the stand. The larger ones I'm working on will be a bit over 36"! I'm exited at the possibilities a larger "canvas" will afford me.
Here's the one I made for my art trade:
All of the fabrics used to make both dolls were hand dyed and printed by me. I think I'm coming along nicely, don't you?
