Glowing Doll Faces

Someone recently asked me where I come up with these ideas.   The short answer is that creativity rules my brain parts.

This may scare you.  Completely understandable.

I really don’t know how I came up with this idea of having a doll face gallery.  I was trying to come up with a way to include the doll makers wife into the scene and utilize this wall on the porch at the same time.

I had a heck of a time coming up with the materials I would use.  First of all, they had to be lightweight because I was going to be hanging them.  Then they also had to dry somewhat quickly and finally, they couldn’t be too expensive.

For the molds themselves, I found this Amazing putty and with a coupon, it wasn’t too expensive.  It worked perfectly.   For the faces, I used Crayola model magic.  Though it dried a little slower than I would like, being so lightweight won me over.

 I mixed equal parts of the stuff together and smooshed it onto the dolls face.

I didn’t have to wait that long before it was set and then I could just peel it off.

Oops.  The eyelashes came off on that one.  EVEN BETTER!

I then worked the Model Magic into the molds.

I checked to make sure all the features were pressed sufficiently before I let them set up.

They weren’t super perfect, but I was more than ok with that.

I found a bunch of ornate frames at a garage sale for .50 each.

I felt I was on the right track but I knew that for nighttime I was going to have to light them somehow.

That’s right.

And this is the point where everyone unsubscribes from my site.

Completely understandable.
