Meet Phillip. He's going to have a needlefelted body. I started him at Sandy Camp and he's finally ready to get fleshed out. I'm playing with body proportions on this li'l guy, and may stick with the short body/long legs for a while. Stay tuned!!
...and don't forget, the Hermit class starts again tomorrow! See the post of October 18 for all details.

I'm teaching on Doll Street again -- yay! Sculpting a Realistic Face is part of a series of self-contained classes, so you can take one or all. If you take the whole series, you'll have a complete doll at the end!

Many of you know I have sculpted for years with a manicure stick...now the hands are getting creaky, that teeny manicure stick is a little hard to hold on to. So I got me one o'these!
I REALLY like this tool, *and* they made me a custom tool as well that is soooo nice for arthritic hands. Tell 'em Oddfae sent ya!

Marie Spaulding - aka Living Felt - is inviting felt artists to join together in a circle of peace around the world through our felt making with Peace Felt 2010.
The Mission of Peace Felt 2010 is
"To promote peace and connectivity among nations, loving kindness among individuals, gratitude in our hearts and in our consciousness - knowing that WE create our world through our thoughts, words and actions.
To, as Gandhi reminded us, "Be the change we wish to see in the world."
To promote awareness of the ancient art of felt making and the modern craft of needle felting for its qualities of being earth friendly, extremely versatile, and easy to learn!"

I'm going to *try* to keep a WIP blog of my latest project...I've had this idea in mind for quite a while, I just hadn't found the most important supply -- the dolls!
I went to the local flea market this AM, and there they were! The twins...and the price was right -- two dolls for two dollars!

I feel kinda strange posting this, but folks have been asking...
I don't have a book yet, but am looking into a couple of options. If you'd like, I can add you to my email list so you'll know about eBay auctions, new Etsy items, classes, etc.
I have been featured in Art Doll Quarterly, and have work in several books...
Making Gourd Dolls & Spirit Figures by Ginger Summitt and Jim Widess
The Illustrated Bead Bible: Terms, Tips & Techniques by Theresa Flores Geary
Polymer Clay for the Fun of It! by Kim Cavender
Faux Surfaces in Polymer Clay by Irene Semanchuk Dean
The Complete Book of Polymer Clay by Lisa Pavelka
There have also been a couple of my pieces in Faerie magazine and Faeries and Enchantment magazine.

You are the Sphinx. She was a monster who killed for the intellectual joy of it. It was only Oedipus solving her riddle that killed her - she threw herself off a cliff. She kept an entire country under her paw in a reign of terror.
