Meet Dandelion!

My new little girl in progress, This baby I am making for "Artis as Teacher"Competition / Exhibition I  am  entering in February.

Dandelion was inspired by my childhood memories and this beautiful photo by Natalia Zakonova.

The lovely girl on this picture reminded me of my childhood friend Olga. Same green eyes and sweet lovely face.

This started me on this project.  Here is some pics "in progress"
This little girl is not so little!
In fact it is the biggest doll I've ever attempted to make 23" (60cm)

I choose "Cernit" polymer to make her.
Eyes are acrylic "Real Eyes" brand

Gentle color with heat set oils,
my favorite for polymer "blushing"

Here we are so far…

"Little Paw" is finished!

This little girlie was created for my friend Uylia, who is now pregnant with her second girl. As a mother of two boys, I find, that there is  something incredibly precious about the little girls.

                                       I wanted to catch the essence of a five-years-old. 

I even clothed her as I think a little girl would dress herself during her "make-believe" games: Dancer/Ballerina/Princess/Kitty-Cat with her loyal friend Teddy to keep her company.

Here is more of the "Little Paw":
