I think I can, I think I can...

So this sculpting engine is s-l-o-w-l-y getting back to speed. I think I can, I think I can.... IDEX is looming ever so near....I've been on "vacation" of sorts throughout the summer and whenever that happens...well...the
I have to learn it all over again. AND
they have been messing with CERNIT...trying to take out the bad stuff that comes into your skin and gives you cancer if you use it too much (only since 1990 or so).
The stuff I bought back in April is USELESS. I bought ONE bar just to try it a few weeks ago and it still was too STIFF and PINK. Yuck.
I mixed it with LIVING DOLL and it was okay to sculpt with but not like THE OLD STUFF....wahhhhhh!
Okay, then I tried FIMO PUPPEN. On little stuff. Okay. I want my OLD CERNIT back again. I ordered some more...should come today since it didn't come yesterday.
I'll try again.
Will let you know how it goes.
I have been sculping TINY and TINIER. My last face is about 3/4"!! Hope to make a press mold with it and make some between the bigger stuff....
I did many TINY fingers..until my eyes crossed. But I am no longer AFRAID of sulpting small!
I may post some pictures......

It seems like....

It seems like there was something I was supposed to do today.......good thing for notes....written by child who needs an x-ray.....
But there was another thing....oh, yes, the giveaway...but that was supposed to happen last week. Oh, well, better late than never.
So Beth gets a set of greeting cards...I know she didn't actually "comment" except to hit "like" on Facebook but that counts this time since I got so few comments.
So thank you to all of you! I sold two dolls this weekend! Go to The Dollery for their online show that will be posted until sometime in November.

Sculpting tiny faces and the giveaway!

So yesterday's project was to sculpt a face and it was so tiny I can't even photograph it. At the end of the day I didn't like how the mouth turned out so I may be still working on it. Today Ann comes again to work (Yay!). I am going to sculpt a little bigger face. It will be another sleeping baby. I decided to add one more baby to the piece I am working on.
I am sculpting with Fimo Puppen. I tried the Living Doll on the last little sleeping baby. I think I like this Puppen although the color seems a little pink to me. We'll see when I get it baked.
Now don't forget to comment on the Alice doll post. You don't have to say anything about the doll - just make a comment about whatever! The greeting card giveaway is coming up on Thursday!
