1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Day of the Dead Marie Antoinette (Papier Mache) on: August 31, 2009 02:20:41 PM
Marie Antoinette is done in the Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos style.  I purposely made her skull extra big to give it a comical appearance.  She was formed using styrofoam, covered in newspaper strips, then paper clay, sanded and then painted with acrylic paints and sealed with an acrylic sealer.

Here is my second Day of the Dead Elvis. He is made of paper mache'.  I start with a wire armature and build upon it with crinkled newspaper.  I then mache' over it with newspaper strips and then add a paper clay mix.  He is then sanded and painted with acrylic paints.  He is sporting the Blue Fireworks jumpsuit.  I am a huge Elvis fan and plan to eventually do all the jumpsuits.

Hey all,
Here are some pics of my latest creations I did for St. Louis Craft Mafia's CraftaNostra show.  My pieces start out with a wire, paper or styrofoam armature, and then covered in newspaper strips and the last layer is a paper pulp that is sanded and then painted.

Hope you enjoy!



10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Help with sock dolls! Ugh!!! Stuffing and embroidery of faces on: April 09, 2008 01:52:11 PM
Okay, so I took upon myself to try and do some sock dolls for an upcoming Plush show.  I have never done these before and being the crafty person that I am with unrealistic expectations I am running into all kinds of snags.

1.  What is it with fiberfill that makes it want to bunch up in the little socks and look like lumps?  How can I fix this?

2.  For embroidering details on the face using felt, buttons and embroider techniques.  The socks are proving harder to sew than I thought with the elastic give and all.  I have some fusible webbing, what if I cut out a piece just for the face and ironed it onto the inside of the sock.  Would it show up too much?  Would it make it easier to embroider?

Thanks in advance for any and all help!!!
