As always, I am amazed at each new "birth".
I sure didn't take enough pictures of these two little sweeties before I sent them home to Kellie Beckett, their sculpting artist, but I feel so far behind I just needed to snap a few and get them sent.
This first little one is not quite 2 inches long!
Oh my...she was hard to paint even with magnifiers on, and even harder to photograph!
(Kellie made and inserted her silicone eyes)
The 3 inch cutie was a bit easier to paint and turned out really adorable!
Moving onto a bigger Kellie Beckett mini silicone prototype...
I couldn't resist snapping some pictures of her before I matted her.
She is now matted and I will be finishing rooting her hair today.
This one will be going on eBay as soon as she's done :)
Kellie has not yet named her.
She is 7 inches long from head to toe and stays in the seated position.
She's not sleeping though! She has her eyes closed in glee as if something is tickling her.
She is so very darling!
These next two are mini full body silicones by Melissa McCrory.
I like to have some of these inexpensive silicones around to work on while other silicone dolls are curing. They make real nice dolls for the small space collector and those on a tighter budget.
The molding into silicone doesn't always come out perfect in details which makes the painting of small parts such as hands, feet and nails (and in their cases their facial details) imperfect but I am able to give them beautiful tones giving low budget collectors a taste of my signature artwork.
Meet Mia and Mya!
They are super squishy, wiggly 7 inch little girls!
(Waiting on their outfits to be made and arrive. They will probably be available on my website as opposed to eBay.)
Very close to being finished is a 10 inch little boy also by Melissa McCrory.
I am calling him Handsome Henry!
Can't wait to show him off.
He has open eyes.
Have a good Wednesday!
