New Projects

Thank you for coming by.
Hope you are have a good day!!!!!

I started the Santo Doll Cage.
It is my style. I'm going to do in primitive .Will do some painting on them. It is very different them the original s .Will get a reporduction one some time.
I have always used paper mache When I do tis type of craft, this Paper Clay is wonderful.
The size of the cage is about12x 3 .When it is done with the doll it will be another 6 inches Will be working on for a few days.

Also making bird nest I use scrapes of fabric, then put stiffener and mold in nest shape.
I use them in bird cages.Just little accent piece.When they are dry they stay stiff. I was using glue. I was at the thrift store yesterday and I bought the stiffener
hope it works better.

The egg is a paper mache.It is size of a quails egg .I painted the rose on it. I'm going to paint roses on the cage. This nest is about 3 inches. I make allot of different sizes .

  4. I'm curious to see where this project is going and wonder what you'll do with the cage portion...please post when you're done.

  5. Hi Laura,
    Thanks for coming over and leaving a comment. Yes I agree I usually get rid of something and then find a use for it. This cage doll is going to be great. I love those dolls. The bird nest is neat and I love the little painted egg.

  6. Laura... the photos that you have put together for the cage doll project are terrific! I think that your choices of the "cages" will prove to be very pleasing. I too, enjoy working with paperclay, as opposed to paper mache.. Thank you for posting Woodstown Whimsies as one of your favorite blogs to visit! Daryle
