Matilda & Scarlet




Heres my girls Matilda and Scarlet together. Its so rare that I have two kids together I had to take this chance to show them snugglin:D Im really fond of these two and proud of myself churning away to get things done for a change! Im still at work on Camille and a new one... maybe a boy this time. Matilda gets a tiny real acorn in her nook too. Not shown.


Matilda has been adopted by a new mom. So, the lil dears have to be seperated but, I get to hang on to Scarlet a bit longer ^-^ I got my pink leather,but oy ve! its not patented so ,researching what you apply on leather to get the patented look!

  1. Matilda has to be favorite from the lot (although it was rather difficult to choose)!!!!!!!!!!

    They are ALL absolutely PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think that you are on a row Nita... I can see that you 've got loads of inspiration and ideas that are dying to come out and be realized into dolls.....

    ...and all I can say is.. I CAN'T WAIT to see what you will be doing next ;)

    Dreamy, professional, flawless work as always!

  5. Told you so :) They 're really great quality. Also more affordable than premium angora mohair, easier to work with and with 0% waste!!

    I couldn't believe that you actually managed to use those red hair scraps! If you hadn't mentioned it... I wouldn't be able to tell!

    Matilda looks fantastic with them.. yet I suspect that Matilda would look absolutely fabulous in anything you used on her.. she is a marvelous sculpt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    p.s. You have no idea how happy I am that you like them :)

    p.s.2. Would you be interested in some lizard skin? I have an old bag (that used to belong to my grandmother) made out of (an entire), *real* lizard leather. The scales on it are of a nice size(rather small) with plenty of interesting parts (like the softer *belly* part of the animal etc). Also its kinda soft and easy to work with.. and I thought that since you 're into *leather* this period (sounds naughty hehe) maybe you could have some use for it...

  7. Yes I love everything you sent! The hair I noticed has good depth too with highlights that make it seem natural.
    Hmm lizard leather could be very interesting. Surely you can think of a neat doll for it?^-^ If not Id be happy to make some thing interesting.
    Thank you Marisa. I focus almost entirely on the faces and expression now and they are much larger than the tiny fairies etc. I enjoy it much more!

  8. You work is always so amazing Nita. I don't think I've ever seen one piece of yours that wasn't absolutely perfect. You give us all something to strive for no matter what style that may be. Xoxo

  10. Hi Cereal killer:)Dont you like Captn crunch even? heehee

    I am a self taught sculptor and I was a painter before. If you want to learn sculpture go for it! The skills of drawing and painting carry into all forms of art:D
