The Arms Race

This week has been spent on bodies and arms for the ODACA Day centerpiece dolls. Before work, after work and on days off. I'm not saying what the doll will be or look like yet (it's hush hush, you know), but let me say 10 dolls didn't sound like that much in the beginning. I was wrong. All these body parts take much longer to make than you might think. Not to mention the needle sculpting, multiple layers of Messy Mix, gesso, acrylic paint, and don't forget the sanding between each layer. And I haven't even begun to paint the facial features. That task is for tomorrow.

There's a photo I have of Martha Chase's workshop that looks very similar to this picture. It has torsos hangin' from the ceiling. ;-)
