My process is very similar to how a bronze artist works. The bronze artist creates an image out of wax. I created my piece out of clay. The bronze artist creates a mold out of sand, I do mine out of plaster. The bronze artist pours bronze into the mold, I pour porcelain which is what I love working with . Because the porcelain that I use is in a liquid form, it has to be poured into a mold. Depending on how thick I pour the porcelain is how translucent my piece is. The lighter I can pour it, the more glow I get in the finished piece. The downsize to porcelain is that it has a memory. Every texture, hic-up or intent has been captured in the casting. I now have to re-teach the porcelain what I want it to revel in my finished piece to have the smooth glowing surface that I love to feel.
Welcome to my blog. This is where I will reveal the magic of my Fae and their stories and share with you some of the success and pitfalls through the journey of doll making, sculpting, and other crafts that all come back to my dolls in many ways.
