Cool stuff! I really like the Day of the Dead dotee - I tried one like that a while ago. I really need to post all my mistake dotees - there are quite a few.

Also really like the tree nymph - you people are truly talented!

The day of the dead dotee is one of my favorites!  Love the face.  Is the flower on the body felted on or painted?

I like that Day of the Dead dotee too! I've always been so fond of those sugar skulls because they're so colorful, but I actually have yet to do any kind of artwork with them--I need to fix that!

I'm glad everybody liked the dotees I made, especially since they were my first. I'm not overly fond of embroidery, so I drew two of the faces and the tree nymph had a painted face (since hers was darker I needed something that wasn't translucent). There are also so many neat new ideas here I'm going to have to try--I recently invested in some polymer clays, so I may have to experiment with using those.

Oh, and Smmarrt's dotees remind me of a cartoon I used to watch when I was little. I like how they're so simple!

Great job everyone!!  I got mine from themuppet today too!!  This is too hilarious - on my list of "likes" I had fairytales and monsters.  Muppet's creative mind shifted into overdrive and this is the result - I now present.....Rapunze l-clops!  (applause applause applause!)  I am almost certain that there is no one else in the world with a Rapunzel-clops - haha - thanks so much muppet!  You did an amazing job!

You guys! I get distracted for a couple of days and lots of lovely Dotees appear! I love them all - Tree Nymph, Yo Yo Snow, I <3 Dotees (looks very familiar!), Sugar Skull, and Rapunzel-clops.
All so original and well done!  Nice work! I am learning so much from this group. Smiley

The day of the dead dotee is one of my favorites!  Love the face.  Is the flower on the body felted on or painted?

hee thanks!

The flower is felted on... I did the faces on my dotees by painting gesso over some cheapo cotton fabric then painted them with watercolors. Cheesy

I'm so glad Rapunzel-clops' hair survived the trip!  I styled those funky alpaca spikes for like 15 minutes and then thought "man these are gonna get destroyed when I package this thing".. lol!

Muppet - you have amazing skills! I'm trying to see the details on Rapunzel's eye - is that really glitter, or is it painted on? Very cool and very original!

blush!  Thank you Cheesy  It's all just paint, no glitter.  I think what you're seeing as glittery are just little bloops and dots of white paint.. I'm a big fan of bloops and dots of white paint! Wink
