Love has a Hem

Thursday, October 8th, 2009

Love has a hem to her garment,
that reaches the very dust.
It sweeps the stains
from the streets and lanes,
and because it can, it must.

Got Barbie

Friday, April 17th, 2009

Art Bud Mavis Leahy has been on the scout out for Barbies, and brought a whole gaggle full for me. The next Barbie is gonna be a Jellicle Cat, “Whats a jellicle cat” you say?

and if you are interested this is Elaine Paige as the Glamour Cat singing Memory, I can not decide if I like the great Betty Buckly’s Grisabella more or not, maybe they are just different. Elaine Paige is the singer that Susan Boyle (UK’s Got Talent) aspires too, and now you know how I came to this idea.

want to know how to repaint Barbie’s face? its simple!

Use q tips to remove the face with nail polish remover. If you want to keep the hair don’t get the remover on it. After the paint is removed, wash the area with rubbing alcohol, and apply a mixture of baking soda and water. leave this on the area for several minutes, then wash off. This is a good safeguard when using these products, as baking soda is a neutralizer. Apply a layer of gesso and sand it down to an even finish with very fine sand- paper. This makes a smooth surface for painting. Lightly sand the entire eye and eyebrow area with wet/dry Auto 1000 Weight Sandpaper. The doll is ready to be repainted.

and the third installment of the stringy ones, Stringy with tear drop.

Feathered Friends, build your nests

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

I started this Barbie with only the idea of wrapping her in string and seeing what occured to me as I went along, and I wasn’t to thrilled for most of the venture until I got to her head, and then she started revealing her feedback. As I started to weave in angelina fiber I began to think of her like a goddess figure or mother earth type metaphor and her strings and bits as material for bird nests. I posed her arms in a welcoming manner and I am content with the way she turned out. I may even do a few more. Yes, I might. do a few, more. Maybe.

You can see her bigger and with more detail by going to my flickr page…
