I'm hard at work, trying to finish my latest doll -- "Goblin Masquerade". You might remember, I posted the concept sketch a while back:
Here's her body, with the dress. Her arms are almost done, but I haven't attached them yet:
And, here's the head sculpt (unpainted). It's a fabric stuffed head, with a paper clay mask sculpted on the face:
 Okay, I have to get back to work. This doll needs to ship out by next week!!!

Or, would that be "SteamPumpk-In"?? Anyway, I made 2 little steampunk/robot guys this week. I bought those little plastic candy cups that look like Jack-o-Lanterns (6 to a bag at Michael's). I added some wooden arms & legs (shaker pegs & spools - also from Michael's), and lots of steam punk gears & stuff (mostly Tim Holtz products).

After doing both, I decided I like the one with the shorter arms better. Since the little nut-cup didn't have a top to it, I improvised and used the top of a water bottle to finish his head.
I will be teaching how to make this guy at the "China Phoenix 2" stamp store in Albuquerque next month. (More info later when their site is updated).
