You make the jewellery for the figurines and everything!!! The color of her face is so beautiful. I'm really loving looking through your gallery. You are one extremely talented & skilled artist!!

:aww::blush: Thank you so much! I believe that like all of us, these folks must have "stuff" so I make their props! If I don't actually make them from scratch they are constructed from found items. I was very happy with this figure. Ironically this was a commission and the customer was not happy with her at all and so I refunded her money....something I typically do not do on commissioned pieces. She sold though to someone else who fell in love with the old gal! ;)

The person who commissioned her was a fool for not being happy with her - she's glorious!! At least somebody else had a good pair of eyes. :)

She was made because she was buying work to fit a specific scale doll house and she said this piece was just too big...she was really mad! :shrug: She was one of my most difficult and cheap customers any way...

I wonder if she was making a witch doll house? I recently ordered 10 doll house dolls from E-Bay. It will take them a while to arrive here & my youngest son has suggested that I make them a doll house, so I've been watching videos about how to make doll houses & furniture etc. I don't have the tools or the wood to make a wooden one, so I'm going for a cardboard one. Sounds a bit tacky, I know, but I think that I'm going to enjoy it. :D

That's exactly what she hoped to make and she said that the witch I made would be too big according to her scale requirements- she'd be around six feet tall...:shrug:

That's not tacky at all- just use Mod Podge or Titebond 3 wood glue- if it's available in your neck of the woods- to coat the cardboard with to reinforce it and make it somewhat watertight. You can do amazing structural things with heavy stock paper and carbord- check this fine fellows work out! It's almost completely- if not entirely- made from paper:

:iconraskolnikov0610:

His work is amazing but when you factor in that it is mostly paper...it brings it all to a new level of achievement. This should inspire you and change your mind about your chosen medium! :) Have fun looking through his gallery.

I've seen a lot of videos where Americans use hot glue, but I don't know if it's available in Australia or not. I only have PVA at present & 7 of the doll house dolls arrived yesterday - another 3 still to arrive.

Thanks so much for your vote of confidence, & also for the advice, which I really appreciate. Thanks too for recommending the artist who works in paper - he's truly imaginative, highly skilled & inventive, so I'm watching him now. :)

Hot glue is everywhere- you should be able to find it easily enough there in Australia. :) And you are quite welcome...his work really takes my breath away!

I love Goody :love:
How tall is she?

Thank you my friend! She's too tall according to the original customer- who reneged on buying her...:roll: She's just shy of 6 inches tall- much taller with her hat on of course.

I wondered if your FB post was referring to this figure. :fork:

Did you at least have some sort of "deposit" that you non-refunded?? :spank:

:iconboggleboy:
Boggleboy Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
Yes it was referring to this and normally the deposit is indeed nonrefundable... I made an exception in this case :surrender: because the hassle I was already having over this whole ordeal and with this...:bucktooth:person just was no longer worth it... But yeah- I always tell my customers up front and in very plain words that to get started sculpting on a commissioned piece at least half the total amount due must be paid and that is nonrefundable...but this person is one of those kinds of people who makes her own inability to understand anything look like everyone else is being difficult and thick...:upset: I should have known better than to deal with this person.:stupidme:

I ALWAYS watch your stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is, after all, absolutely superb!!!!

And I'd still like you to come teach our Guild in San Diego. We have a LOT of experienced clayers here, and we'd pay for your flight and put you up at someone's home. :D

We'll be talking about that eventually- if travel and a place to stay are part of the overall pay package, then I'm going to start working out the logistics. My workshops here have gone very well- and it's been great to work with folks who are into this actual medium and also with art doll makers. It's a totally different experience with the right group to be sure! You looked like you had a great space out that way- my only concern would be transporting all my stuff for the workshop. But I'll work it out somehow I think. I'd love to get out that way to work with folks in your area!
