Well I am back. It’s a while since I posted anything on my website.
So it’s sunny outside and I think I may go out in the garden and mow my lawn so this will be a small blog.
I just thought I would have a go at making a rag doll that would be perfect for a little girls birthday cake. It’s around 5 inches in height and took around 4 hours to create.
This cute little rag doll is made entirely of modelling paste. I first started with the legs then attached the feet. Putting a stitch effect around the booties to emphasize that is a rag doll made of fabric.
I used a lollipop stick to hold the body to the top of the legs and hold the body up straight.
Using embossed rolling pins I then dressed the model body with a pretty skirt and worked upwards towards the shoulders.
Just getting the basics down, I moved on to the arms and hands with more stitching embossing using another lollipop stick to hold the arm up (I had to prop this up for 24hrs to dry and hold).
Making the face was fun and enjoyable – just to see what I could do – I surfed the net to get an idea of what rag doll faces were attractive and put my own stamp on it.
All the pretty flowers, dots and detailing were the last job of the day.
I also am thinking of making a little boy rag dog in blue to match at some stage.
I will always endeavour to reply to your enquiry within 48 hours. If you have not heard from me in that time it suggests that there is an error with my mailbox or server which I am currently unaware of and I would therefore ask that you try to contact me by phone or text. Thank you.
