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:

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!

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.
