Second Post

I am having some weird episodes with my internet connection lately, so I split today's entry in order to just get SOMETHING up on the blog. It's been a while since I've had a chance to post, and these interruptions are becoming quite frustrating...

Here is my little Goodwill baby with her ears and toes sculpted. I have painted the additions a flesh color and they are now in the oven for a heat set. The next step will be to add a wash of color to the vinyl to give her a fairy skin tone. I am thinking that a very pale green with violet shadows will be what she wants.

Fortunately, if she DOESN'T want it, the Genesis paint wipes right off until it's heat set.

Then for some tattoos -- in metallic gold? -- and her costume and wings and she'll be all set.

I'd *like* to post some photos of my white-on-white doll in progress, but I think I will take what I can get today and run with it. I'll try again tomorrow and see if I can catch a more reliable connection.

She's going to be fantastic! Love the ears! Did you use an epoxy clay for them? Can't wait to see the next step!
