That's a pretty cool design which reminds me strongly of DC Comics' Joker (the big grin and green hair are probably why).  The Scrabble tiles and computer keyboard keys teeth are particularly nice design elements; great job!

Thanks. I started to notice the resemblance to the Joker once the wig was sewn on. It wasn't my original intention, but I like it. Smiley

Hey everyone,

It's been a while since I posted, but I have been super busy making my Abandoned Toys. This is my latest creation. Meet Sid the Punk bear. He has teeth made from scrabble tiles and keyboard keys and a full head of green hair, a wig I had from a costume party that fit him perfectly Smiley








Here's a pic of the transformation. I alter preloved and abandoned toys as a social commentary on the ugliness of our throwaway society. Smiley

How did you made the teeth..they look so real...rather creepy but very well done I think..

Thank you  Grin I didn't make the teeth, they're resin teeth similar to what they use in dentures Smiley Cool aren't they?

the teeth are always a fave of mine with your projects. also love the eyes. the fabric gives them a hooded nonchalance. perfect in every way!
Thank you. I love the eyelids too. They really bring the eyes to life Smiley

What do you do with your dolls when you are finished? Is there a market for these?
I sell them online and at events. See link to my shop below Smiley

Is the name because Pollock? Cuz of the paint splatter?
It is indeed Smiley I'm tempted to do more bears inspired by famous artists  Grin

Hi everybody. Here's one of my latest Abandoned Toys. I take abandoned/preowned toys and customise them to represent the ugliness of our throwaway culture

He's called Jackson. Any guesses what inspired the name?  Cheesy





Here's how he started life:


Add a little paint...


and some felt eyelids...


and finally a felt mouth and some resin teeth, et voila!



Oh, and I think somebody got jealous and wanted in on the photoshoot...  Roll Eyes

Pretty cool, she reminds me a lot of the Monster High mermaid twins Peri & Pearl.  Speaking of which, if you didn't already know, your other body donor was a Monster High Draculaura.  Your doll also reminds me of Ettins, two-headed giants from mythology and Dungeons & Dragons.  The plaid dress is cool and I also like the red bands and dots you applied around their eyes which gives the two heads a matching quality despite their different origins.

Thank you. Yeah I knew she was a Monster High doll, but I didn't know which one. I found a bunch Monster High dolls left behind after a boot sale with missing arms/legs etc. I've just made an 8 legged doll with all the Monster High doll legs Smiley Watch this space for her.

The makeup was an afterthought, and I agree, it really helped bring them together as a cohesive character. Gotta love Sharpies Smiley

Hi again guys, I've got a new Abandoned Toy for you! I've been wanting to do a conjoined twin for a while, and I love how she turned out!

I find broken dolls all the time and keep them for parts. The Barbie doll was a legless torso when I found her. I cut her down to just below the chest and cut off one shoulder. I then affixed the hollow Barbie torso over the other doll and sculpted over the top with epoxy clay. It gives a great seal and sets hard like plastic so there is no danger of the 2 parts coming apart. When the clay had dried, I made the dress by stitching her into the fabric and styling from there.

I named the twins Gem & Ella as 'Gemela' is Spanish for twin Smiley

HA HA HA! Flossy! Have you seen the tooth kid from the SyFy TV show Channel Zero? This would be its play toy. Awesome creepy job.

Nooo, not seen that. Will have to look out for it  Grin

Thanks  Cheesy
