This is an archived posting from my previous website “Chips Antidotal Wanderings” – a personal blog about family, creative moments, and pain management activities in my life. That blog was active from 2004-2011.

Work in Progress

I’ve been playing around with some new art dolls recently. Here they are thus far:

I’m still working on these projects. Neither of them have the body parts actually connected. I just laid them on the scanner bed as if they were. I do this sometimes in the designing phase to try on different embellishments, poses, faces, etc. before completing them. I think the left side doll will eventually be holding an emblem or object. I haven’t found the face I want yet.

The right side doll will have a bouquet of flowers and jewelry added to her. As well as an embellishment on her hairband.

These will eventually be put on stands or added to assemblage projects. I think I might have them done in a couple of weeks. I still need to get to know them a little better. 🙂

Mermaid  Altered Art Doll

This art doll is finished all but her string of beads she’ll be holding. I’m still not sure if I’m going to add her to an assemblage project or put her on a stand. Time will tell.I tried to show up close textures and details with the inset photos. But the sparkle on her hair still doesn’t show up well in this particular scan. You can click on the picture to see a larger view in my flickr gallery.

The tail fin has a meshy like ribbon on it that I recycled from a holiday package. More of the same make up her arm bands. The torso scales are disks with an iridescent shimmer when the light hits them. Same material for her breast plates. Her waist has mini beads and her hair has shiny embossing powder added.
