More Art Dolls

On Sunday I played with fabric scraps and made two more art dolls, one for an Art Object PIF Twist on Nervousness. Instead of sewing beads all around the seam, like I did with the first two, I sewed dangling beads off each arm, the bottom and the head. I like the effect.

I bought face molds at AC Moore a couple of weekends ago and used soft Fimo polymer clay, onto which I brushed PearlEx Pigment powder in silver and bronze before baking. After baking, I sealed the faces in a glossy varnish because the pigment still rubbed off a little when I touched it.

This photo makes them look like they are the same color, but one is blue and one is purple.

Great colours, even if they do look like creepy voodoo dolls!
