The prize resin doll for Birthday Contest winner!

3 years, 11 months ago 8

Last week I took a few days off engraving my new porcelain doll codenamed: ‘Madman P‘, to finally finish making a resin doll prize for this year’s winner of my annual Birthday Contest. It was a welcome change for my engraving hand and my routine after a few months of doing basically the same thing. Even art can get boring without variety.

I had spent oh, maybe 2-3 solid days fighting with all of my mohair to make a wig for this girl. With the drought going on right now, it was so static-y and frizzy….and with the glue drying so wonky, I basically just wanted to set everything on fire in my bathtub and watch it burn. But, as usual, it all worked out in the end. Can’t make a good doll without a good struggle, and this doll turned out extra-good! Stay tuned for more pictures next week.
