I have NEVER been interested in trying powders on my dolls....
Melissa George has done it again!
I have read the controversy that has come up over these powders and Sue-ellen Taormina.
I understand that Sue-ellen is in a fragile state with her heart and I feel for her, but the accusations against Melissa George make no logical sense what-so-ever.
There was NOTHING to steal. Sue-ellen didn't come up with the methods of using powders on reborn dolls. That method has been around since before I began reborning...more than 10 years!
The method that Sue-ellen uses and teaches and the Baby FX method are completely different techniques. Melissa doesn't need to "steal" techniques from anyone. She is a fabulous, gifted and creative artist all on her own.
Sue-ellen didn't have a "product" for which Melissa stole from. The powders that Sue-ellen teaches with are these:
Those are standard make-up powders and were not created by Sue-ellen.
If Sue-ellen were going to make her own powders, according to my understanding, Melissa knew nothing about it.
We are a consumer driven economy. We love options in our purchases. We love different brands. So if Sue-ellen wants to create her own powders there is certainly room in the industry for her to do so.
We also love to explore and learn.
I have looked at Sue-ellen's techniques. I didn't gather anything of use in MY art so I didn't gain anything from her style and I no longer follow. I believe we all explore on a daily basis to which we create our own methods, styles and techniques.
Isn't that why YOU are HERE?
