Alien and Skeleton dolls

Lots of molds have been made and are somewhat dry now. Thank goodness it's winter and I can stand them on the heating vents to hasten the drying process! I am now starting to pour parts, then the pouring spouts and seams will be removed. As the parts dry I will refine them further and once dry they will go into the kiln. I'll start making the body and clothing patterns after the firing process as the final parts will shrink considerably from the original sculpted pieces. I believe the dolls will end up being the size of a standard fashion doll of about 15". The Aliens and Skeletons will have the same bodies aside from the Aliens having longer arms.

I am giving serious consideration to making these dolls (choice of Alien or Skeleton doll) available as an online class. Clay parts and paper patterns would be mailed and a password given to view online videos. Sound like something that would interest you? I'd love to hear some feed back!

I think you should do online classes for sure!! I am not into making clay dolls, BUT I would absolutely take a class on how to make one of your amazing themed journals.

I agree with Elizabeth: you don't take a project lightly! I think both of these models would make great classes. I say go for it. Offer it up and folks will on-line up, for it!

Hi Ingrid, I am real interested in any doll class you'd offer. I am enjoying the online classes I am taking. It's wonderful to be able to take classes from artists I would not otherwise be able to see. Keep me posted, maybe on fb? So good to "see" you again.
