So school is out for the holidays and I could NOT be more excited. I still have a absolute mountain of marking to do, but classes are finished, so in theory I could do the rest of my work in my underwear while drinking a mai tai (although, given the frigid temperatures, this seems unlikely...maybe in my dressing gown with some brandy...) I've been thoroughly enjoying last few days off and have been working on some doll figurines. Maudette and Claude are the latest results:
Maudette has a cedar and dowel base in place of legs, and the most beautiful auburn hair.
She's similar in construction to Agatha and silent Annabel, but not nearly as big. Also, she's made from polymer clay and epoxy instead of paperclay, and so did not take nearly as long to make as those first doll figurines, which took weeks. Claude is quite short - no legs, no base, but enough charm to keep her standing.
I have a few more figurines in progress - these ones are very small and very bald but I'll take care of their pretty little heads soon.
Well, we're off to enjoy this sunny Sunday - brunch, then a long walk to the cinema to see a Swedish vampire movie (I wouldn't want all that beautiful sunshine to give me an overly optimistic view of life...)
