I am keeping my fingers crossed too that I can get these hands out of the molds when I am ready to pour them in porcelain. So many things to think about when making hands that will be casted in a mold... like even how much can I bend a finger in relationship to the other fingers so the hand will come out of the mold when poured. I am glad my Fae decided they only wanted to have three fingers instead of four (*smiling*).
Next I am off to the sink to wash up each mold to get rid of any residue of clay left behind using a soft bristle tooth brush. Once all of them are cleaned then they are set out to dry.
Now, this is where I get to go play with my new magical fabric that is just waiting to be explored while these pieces take the week to dry out. Yep, about that long before I can start pouring the liquid porcelain into them and moving onto the next stage.
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.
