Tiki Goddess


Along with beading like mad! I've also been playing around with mixed media doll making and decided to take a plunge into working with Apoxie Sculpt. I took a class back in May with Jean Bernard, and never got a real chance to sit with the stuff & get mess. Well, I did just that. I took a fashion doll (my niece told me this was Ariel) that I bought at the thrift store. All those poor sad unloved/unwanted dolls sitting on the shelf made me so sad so I bought 6 of them. I got the head at the Dollar Store. After playing around, getting paint every where & getting my husband to help me figure out how to mount the doll onto a stand, I finally came up with this final doll. I'm going to send slides of her to Art Doll Quarterly for their Altered Fashion Doll challenge. Keep my fingers crossed that they like her & want to print a picture of my funky Goddess.

I hope to see her in ADQ too! I would love to alter a fashion doll just for kicks but all the stuff you use for that would make me sick. :-P In the meantime, I've got to get my DD over here to see what you've done!

Oh my, she is terrific, super cool. Good luck with publishing, she deserves to be on the front cover of any magazine.
