Come Take A Look She's Finished

February 20, 2009





















"Peaceful Heart" is finally finished. I worked on her till the wee hours last night and had to wait till today to take the photos while we had some sunlight. She is 100 percent hand made except for the base of course. Isn't it fully that I actually refer to a doll as "she" like she is a real person. Well, that's kind of how I feel now that she is done. Peaceful Heart is made out of cotton material, then coated with gesso. I painted her with acrylic paint. Her dress is painted with irridecent paint so it shimmers gently, just like the original painting I did. I am showing the print, but I should show the actual painting. When I take the photo I will post it. Then she is coated with acrylic varnish for protection. Before I coated her, I grunged her up with charcoal just like the original. I hope you like her. I am going to list her in my etsy store tonight.




Hugs to all

Shelley!! Peaceful Heart the doll IS a "doll" -- I'm blown away by how fabulous she is. And of course you always refer to a doll as "she" -- they have their own personalities!!

She is just beautiful, I would love to have a go at making a doll one day, she is so so sweet! You should be proud you created her. Thankyou also for stopping by and Im glad you liked the video! I used a digital photo camera, that also has a video function too. And regarding my comment on your blog yesterday, this is so funny, but I WAS refering to monetary riches! LOL. Everyone deserves to be rich (in both senses of the term. Have a great week Shelley!
