Doll making :)


This week I have been making paper mache dolls.
First I had to start with the inside and then add the clay.


After covering the inside I had to make the faces and accessories like the heart and the crown.


I like to start with a black paint, don't know why but I think it gives a great tone, maybe I'm wrong.


Finding the face.


Nowe it was time to paint, first I had to make a blend I liked.


Next was to start with the face.


Then it was the polish with brown colour.


She agrees. 


Look how innocent she is.


She is spontaneous.


She is curious.


Surprised.


She doesn't chare.

I love them, each and every one.

Hope you like my dolls. One is sold already.

Have a wonderful week.

This summer I have been painting and painting... :)

I don't know where to start..
In May I went to Norway to take a class from Jenny Grant.
There I was over a weekend painting with my friends from Tracye Verdugo class two years in Sweden and of course some new friends. 
We had a wonderful weekend in beautiful weather, painting, eating, drinking and painting more.


The local in Fredriksberg was great


Jenny Grant is a fabulous teacher.


Beautiful Fredrikstad


Background


Start drawing


With my dear friends Mette from Norway and Valerie from France

We had such a great time, I love taking workshops.

I'll write a new post very soon, the summer is almost finished.

Hope you had a great one

New painting..


I did star working on this one when I took a workshop in Norway in May.
The teacher was Jenny Grant.
I had a wonderful time, painting for 3 days with wonderful friends both old and new.
Can't wait for the next workshop we take together.
Jenny the teacher is an angel, I became her friend in some online FB group and then I took her class in LB and then she was the host for Tracys class in Sweden two years ago.

And here is another one, this one is old, always trying to finish with this one but never happy, think Ill collage over her and start all over again.


Have a great day all of you :)

My dolls made of clay :)

.

Im taking a class with Jeanne-Marie Webb, Soulbearer.
In the class we are working with self drying clay.
I love this class.

First I made one, Then I made two more.


I left them to dry over one night and then they were ready for paint..


The first layer was black as always when working with clay.
Then it was the second layer and the third and so on until I was happy.


Painting the face was the most difficult part. 
I think Im finished with her face but going to add more layers to her body.. 
And then I have two to paint :) 

Have a great week..
