Cone Shape Doll

I purchase one very hard cone shape cardboard at a recycled store called Urban Source here in Vancouver.
I stuffed it and taped both ends with masking tape then paper mache.Put one layer of clear gesso, and one layer of paint. Paperclay head neck and bodice. I've place the wire , where her  dangling arms and legs will be. It's  currently drying outside, and have to wait for 24 hours until I could further work on it !
Made a paperclay head, neck and bodice..Waiting 24 hours for it to dry.

She looked pretty with a flower in her hair

I am currently taking an online class with Katie Kendricks called Layered Impressions.
I'm enjoying it very much!
She's been teaching us how to draw with our left hand.
I love using my right hand as well; but with my non dominant hand ( which happens to be my left), it touches a part of me which makes me feel wholesome.
This is my second drawing.
When I draw with my left hand, it feels very good. It captures a part of me that is raw (for lack of better words) , and innocent.  The faces I create are not a perfect portrait, and I like that because we live in an 'imperfect world'. I like the asymetrical faces that comes out from an initial drawing. It gives them an amusing character, that always makes me smile.
The faces looks 'other worldly'; but at the same time some of the quirky looks that comes out of these drawings could define some real life characters.

Frida polymer clay doll!

I love Frida Kahlo, and here is my version.
She stands about 8" tall with aluminium armature.
Her limbs are attached to the body with annealed, moveable black wire.
She wears a long cotton colorful skirt with a bit flower bow in the back, and little black boots.
Three flowers adorn her hair.
In the beginning there  were  doll parts..

Homemade paper

Spent the afternoon yesterday making paper.
Here it is on the patio drying.
It's my first time and really enjoyed it.
I'd like to try casting next.
