This is a piece Ive been working on in my free time for over a year, whenever someone would visit my workshop they would ask "what is the little heart for?"
I actually intended to finish it before last valentines day but i couldn't come up with a backdrop i really liked so i put everything away and forgot about it,.. finally i cut out a large wooden heart and started hammering nails into it, (angst anyone?)
I liked the way it looked so i decided to use it as a background.
I sculpt my dolls in Chavant clay, from that i pull silicone molds and cast in a custom resin mix, i then drill my parts hollow and string with elastic (my dolls are completely poseable) i sand down the seams then paint on the makeups.
I made the dead rose vines from bark wrapped wire, dried roses, the thorns were made from sculpey. the heart hes holding i made from sculpey premo..
I added a setup photo to my scraps bin so you could see how I took the pic. heres a link to it --------> [link]
