Another Amazing Adventure

    This past weekend My Talented Friend Colleen Athens held a  Tiny Faerie workshop at my favorite Art Studio Purple Petals  in Maspeth Queens NY. I was so lucky to be her helper for this workshop.
     Thank you Colleen ,I will never forget the experience or all the fun and laughs we had on this adventure. You are an inspiration . peace and love to ya.
    Seven Women Attended the work shop, most of whom never made a doll or worked with paperclay . EEEk a workshop full of first timers .. in spite of that I think All the Dolls came out fantastic! Don't you?
   Day One... Sculpting Tiny faces ,simple hands and legs . Most of the dolls made it into the oven  to dry by lunch time...After lunch every one was sanding and assembling. Some of  the ladies stayed late ,The creative energy was flowing  and We were super charged.

    Day Two... Painting the body parts and the Tiny Faces .... after a quick spray of mat sealer it was on to the costuming ....Fabrics Trims jewels and findings... My Favorite part ! Seeing every doll's personality emerge...
   Sunday night I arrived home Tired and Inspired !
