First of all, I have NEWS about Humpty Dumpty! ^^
I can now say that her date of delivery to me will be the 20th of June instead of the 15th; that is due to the fact that she had a
very nice success so I had to order many dolls, which always means a little longer to produce of course. As many of you asked me, I can say that so far, 58 Humpty are ordered.
I, of course, ordered some more dolls as I did for Aleah, BUT, if you ever are interested in her, let me know as soon as possible because those dolls will be based on ” first arrived, first served”.
Does whatever a spider-humpty does
Can she swing
From a web
No she can’t
She’s an egg!
She is a spider-humpty!
BUT, as previously said, Suzy will be sold in a still secret place which will be unveiled in a few days… No worries for those of you who are in the pre list for Suzy and her friend Morphoblob : you’ll be warned first and I will send you the link in avant première as usual ^^
I live with her, she is the very closest human being to me, she raises my kids, still raises me too to be honest LOL, she stands my unexpectable experiments which often end up by ruining her furnitures and… shame on me I know, but it can even happen to me to wake her in the middle of the night to show her something most urgent on one of my sculpt… She is also the only one daring to face my short temper and telling me to be quiet. Which I always do when she does so..
This is Linda my Mother.
Indispensable et irreplaceable presence by my side.
I did this year for Mother’s Day of course. But I remembered a sentence she said to a relative a few months ago ” Oh yes, if I want a doll, all I have to do is to ask Nefer and she will make one for me. But I don’t because she already works way too much.”
Therefore, in the middle of my prototypes and other earthen clay in progress sculpts, I added a new doll. Unique piece made from paperclay and the biggest I ever done; this is my way to tell her that I am never too busy for her.May I now introduce you “Maab returning from the corridor of Time”.
Her face has been painted with oil paints following the very same process used by Vermeer using is renown glaze technique (yep I got great books ^^) Therefore the shadows on her face come from the first layer of paint which is ash-gray… Yes, I had a panic time when I saw her face totally gray wondering how it would end up, but the master was of course right : that glaze technique WORKS. She is, of course, free standing, in a Degas ballerina pose and anatomically correct. Funny part : her arms as hands and fingers have NO armature. They are only built from paperclay ^^ The butterflies and cicada’s wings are in silk and organza made by me using a technique of mine. Working with spider webs… has been a NIGHTMARE! lol
Hope you’ll enjoy her my friends, as much as My Mother did last night; I wish to every Mother a Happy Mother’s Day.
