Spirit doll faces are new to me. I have always wanted to try self-drying clay, but I know it doesn’t work well for my mosaic tiles. I did get inspired by cruising on etsy to try my hand at some free-form sculpted faces.
To finish them, I used the same process I use for painting mosaic tiles. I have a video on YouTube on how to paint tiles. VIDEO
I had so much fun and they are pretty easy to make. I used a purchased face mold and then sculpted the edges as I felt inspired.
I could use all of my favorite colors!
To get the imprints I used rubber stamps mostly. I also added some clay “hair” and the pieces fused well to the clay as it dried.
I’m playing with making a doll in a shadow box, but so far, I’m not very happy with the result. Assembly with lots of materials is tough, but it’s always fun to try something new.
I’m using hand-painted fabrics, but nothing is finite in this picture. Just playing!
The faces are now available in my etsy shop Earth and Faery.
You are blessed indeed! 🙂
I’m having fun with clay and polymer clay. What are you working on? It’s important to spend part of every day in the studio for art exploration = self exploration.
Let me know in the comments if you like the spirit doll faces. Thanks.
Have a creative rest of the week.
