Strange Drama

I don't know what is going on in the universe, but there has been some strange drama. This is my response to it.

Skeleton Skull Practice

I am going to practice drawing/painting skulls. Right now I have 3 dolls to assemble, one still needs to be sanded and painted. One needs to tell me what she/he wants on her/his head and the other needs to decide on the legs/shoes (no, I'm not going crazy and know that I have to decide) :) I also primed a small cigar box to be used as the body, so that needs painting too. But for now I'm going outside to pot some plants and water.

Limited Color

The challenge was to create a painting with a portrait in it and use only the following colours:




(made out of black and white, duh)

A salmon or flesh tint

(but not on the face)

Titanium Buff

and a smidgen of Pink.

I didn't use any Pink

Work In Progress

I am thinking of using the cap from a plastic soda bottle for a hat for this one. It reminds me of a bellboy's cap, or the tap dancing Pall Mall boxes.

What A Difference A Day Makes

I made some changes to my plastic soda bottle doll. Pulled stuff from my stash and went from there, I think I like this one.

And Now For Something New.....

This is still a work in progress. For the body I used a plastic pepsi bottle, covered it with clay, sanded, painted it white, used an old McCalls dress pattern to cover body, then painted it pink, then blotted it with white paint. I then added stamped images, and then added a gel stain. Still need to work on the face a bit and attach the feathers and crown, right now they are pinned an perched.

Work In Progress

Here is something that I'm working on now. What to try to do a mummy next. I have cheesecloth soaking in black tea now to give it an aged look, good for mummy wrap.

I really like this doll. I used feather trim for the hair. I found it at Tuesday Morning of all places.

Pumpkin Face

Okay, here's another Pumpkin Face. I decided to use some scrap paper to make a cone, and for the arms I used these woven paper ribbons I had made about a year ago. I was going to construct a purse, but lost interest. I knew I'd find a use for them.

Scary Face

I did this face, not really happy with it, but decided to do something with it anyway. I like it better now.

Another Pumpkin Art Doll

For this doll instead of a cape I added a collar, and the shoes are those plastic baby shoes used for decoration at a baby shower. I sprayed the shoes with Kilz Primer and then painted them and then added some bling.
