Last year on my Spring Break I started Gritty Jane's Cloth and Clay dolls online class.
I did this:
But I never finished her :( I was afraid to paint her.
Then at the end of last summer, I started to paint, but still I was too intimidated to paint the actual features:Today I finished her!I don't know what I was so afraid of. If you make a mistake, you just paint over it. sheesh. Click on any of the pictures for a close-up.
Next time I'm going to make one with a skinnier neck..... I'm going to call her Susan. I kind of think that she looks like Susan Boyle. You know? That singer from the UK?
If you want to take the class, it's on sale for only $25!! Here in Toronto you can find paperclay at Aboveground Art Supplies on McCaul street (beside OCAD). I loved making the doll -- but it does take a huge chunk of time. Not something that you can make in one evening. Or even one sitting.
For the rest of the afternoon I'm going to play with photoshop, then tomorrow I'm going to try to make a scrappy book from the Remains of the Day online class. I feel like I'm at an art retreat!
