Something from the Archives

Dead Deb is a sweet lil gal ~ she just bit it a little too soon. I believe it was a tricycle accident, quite bloody by the reports. But she's all cleaned up now and ready for haunting in her favorite black and white striped jammies.

Wow, see what 1 1/2 years of practice will get ya! This is the first piece I ever sold on Etsy. Basically my first Art Doll. In previous sculptures I had used marbles for eyes but I would paint them. When I made this piece, I just stuck the marbles in as usual. My sister made the observation that the color in the marbles looked like eyes and she was right!! So I left them unpainted. I've gotten a lot better at placing the marbles in the clay to make it really look like eyes and I usually use the black and white marbles now instead of the colors.

Wow, she is so cute. Your first "baby" it is amazing to see how far your creepy kids have changed and your progression as a artist.
