Phew i have got the front done and some of the back of my first beaded art doll,i think she is lovely,so much work,i cant imagine how people give them away,what a special present when so many hours and beads! go into them.
If you want to bead and try something other than jewellery i'd say got for it,only the back to go now!!!!!

I thought my first beaded art doll would be my purple one or a mermaid etc,but have been a bit stumped trying to do an 8" doll while trying new pain patches!so have changed down to a small rounder goddess type doll,that has swirls and patterns on the material that gives me a starting point.She is Fertile Freya as she has a baby face on her belly. I made the copper faces and have started the beading and enjoying it heaps. here is the start of Freya.

This is Serena because she is so serene,,my first all home made doll face,i took the mold myself and made her for a face pin challenge. She hasnt been shot she is going to be a pendant rather than a brooch and she has a headdress type thing on with dangles,swarovski crystals in the top.This was fun to make while i am waiting for my purple doll to decide what beads she is going to wear.

My first art doll is coming along slowly,its harder than it looks ,beads that you think will work dont or dont blend in or pop out as you want.I amlso suffering from S.A.D. hands,stuffing art doll hands,woweee it hurts if you have finbro or any other hand problem,and then its like trying to bead on a brick wall lol.Anyway here is a progress pic,and the yellow goddess to be stuffed,enjoy!
After searching the net i decided to try making my own molds for art doll faces,so today i took molds from my 3 mermaid ornaments,baked them,and then just pushed in some clay to see how they went,got so excited ran for the camera and clicked off a couple of shots. For first time molds i think they are cool and definatley encourage to me to get better at it,so heres the first molds made by me!
