Spirit Dolls / Polymer Clay
Last night I finished up the 2 Spirit Dolls that I had started. I used 2 different rubber stamps that I sell on Etsy (Seashell and Forest Floor). I am anxious to make more so later today I will go through my stock and see what else would work up into a doll. Half of the fun is looking for the stamp that speaks to me and then finding embellishments... chosing the color, etc. and laying out in work preparation. I have a stamp called "Nails" that might work up really neat for a Male Spirit doll....hmmmm. A steampunk Gear Stamp that might be neat completed, and A Chinese Writing stamp for some Oriental flair.... we are limited only by our lack of imagination.
Spirit of the Ocean has Sea Urchin shells for arms which I purchased at Florence, Oregon when I took a "me" sabbatical and the dangles are Tierra Cast Ocean charms from:
The center is a handmade glass lamp work bead that has an eye in what looks like a seashell in browns and greens that I love. I used the manicurist tool I have written about here on my blog to drill the holes, and a face mold for the faces.
Spirit of the Forext has arms that are real pebbles which I order predrilled. The leg dangles on this one are Moonstone Czech beads and square silver beads from "stash".
These are so relaxing to create....... I love them.
