The Baron! How fabulous is he?

Did you have much trouble making his clothes? I'm completely loving his coat tails, btw. :-)

Wow, thanks for all the input, everyone!

I'm comfortable with clay, usually, and I've been especially curious about the bendy clay and eraser clay, what their textures are like before and after baking, ease of working, etc. I might try using it for shoes just to see what happens.

Fun foam is a good idea, but I was hoping for a more rubbery result... though depending on the difficulty/ annoyingness of other mediums, I may change my mind about that. :-)

Bah... I couldn't find any of the halloween eyelashes... boo! Oh well, I snatched a couple of pairs while they were in stock, so I'm set for another poppet or two.

Poppets 3 & 4 are mid construction and intended for my 9 and 10 year old sisters for Christmas. Neither are perfect, even this early in the construction, but good enough.

Out of curiosity, has anyone tried using the bendy clay for shoe-making? I've seen sculpty soles, but I'm trying for more of a rubber All-Stars sole and toe effect. Anyone have any experience with this particular medium or project?

Wow, I love the infinity dress!

Oh, they're wonderful! I love their ears and little toes. I really like the hair style you gave the violet (?) haired one. :-)

They're great! I hope that they have the response they deserve at your church auction!

If anyone is interested, I posted the modified pattern pieces for the puppy pattern in his thread ( http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=270692.20) ... or, at least, I posted a picture of the modified pieces. I know. I'm lame.

On a much less so-last-month note, I did finish my latest Poppet, from the Elinore pattern. Her name is Zephyr, and she's quite a bit smaller than Bronwyn. I don't have any pictures of her yet, which is why I haven't given her her very own thread, but someday.... when she had  clothes... and I'm done with other projects... and maybe have given her a mouth... *sigh*... ah, yes... someday...

Thanks so much for the love, everyone! I'm so tickled that he's been so highly appreciated!

Luvelycritter had requested the modified pattern pieces, and I thought that others might like to take a peek at them as well. Unfortunately, the best I could do was take a digital picture of the actual pattern pieces I used. I hope someone can make use of them, regardless.



Just to give you an idea, the leg is the same shape/ size as the original poppet leg. I just enlarged the foot. The ear, of course, is a different shape, and is shown rightside up. The tail -- the shield shape in the middle -- is a cut and fold jobby. When it's all sew up, the fold goes up (curvy side down)... and don't be a space cadet like me: Place the tail low. Our poor little puppy's tail is halfway up his back.

Enjoy!

BellaLupina - she's lovely. I adore her blue skin. :-)

Stitch - I have only the costume eyelashes that are on the shelves now and I botched the first set and had to remake the head. On the second head, however, I glued the eyelids, popped in the safety eyes and then ever so carefully placed the eyelashes right at the edge of the eyelids. Trimmed the edges that hung off the sides of the eyelids ( Cheesy ) and sat back and marvelled. The lashes do seem to sweep down and out in a crazy exaggerated manner, but they are so sweet.

I'm hoping to try regular "people" eyelashes next. I look forward to hearing how you fare with them!

Omigosh! So cute! Did your sister love it?

I love the soot sprites. They are such a great detail for the cake.

Very nice! I love the red hair, eyebrows and beauty mark on your first! And her tat! She is one rockin' Poppet. And your Nameless No.2 is really lovely with her voluptuous curves  and all. Will she be getting hair and eyes and all?

Don't forget to update us when they receive their names! It's so fun to hear all the Poppet names...
