Well guys I thought I'd share with you what I've been doing over my holiday break. This is a wee bjd doll I finally cast in resin... being the first there were certainly some learning curves! And I also found how easy it was to carve and sand so this girl turned out very differently from the original wee doll I molded!
I blushed and did her face in pastel chalk which wasn't as hard as I imagined but still came with some problems!
The first face up was just what I wanted but until I held her in natural light I didn't see some smudges that had been there under one of the sealer coats! So being me I thought maybe a light wet sand would remove them... well yes as you can imagine I had temporarily lost my brain and tried it!!! Long story short do not make the same mistake... I then ended up having to remove all the face up which unto itself was very very difficult and a lot of it wouldn't move in the creases!!!!! So redid the face up and after taking pictures I can see where need to go over some colours... but over all I'm thrilled with her :o)) ... so just need to do the touch up and blush her hands, stick on the back of her head and give her some hair and clothes :o))))))
Hope you like....
Ps will take some cuter pics later as these are terrible and don't do her justice!
Hey Guys found this great auction place yesterday ... so excited by the prices stuff was going for I had to sign up LOL. They have loads of electronics like Dyson vacuums, laptops, iphones, ipads, and more... even some girly stuff like handbags and perfume! Its called Planet Bid and if you haven't checked it out you have to! Theres a Planetbid in the US , Oz, and even here in little old NZ just click the countries to go have a look you will be very surprised if you've not already found it.
How it works, well it pretty simple you buy "freebids" which gives you a certain amount of bids to use... you have to be careful though as you can go crazy and use a few too many but hey you have to get your feet wet and try to get a feel for the auction :o))...since everyone is paying for bids thats how they are able to let stuff go for very very little money! Was up till very late last night waiting for a macbook pro to count down safe to say I blinked and missed the end of it.. (next time I shall use toothpicks to make sure I don't blink LOL)..really amazed me as that mac went for 54c nzd!!!!!!!This place is so much Fun even if you dont join up you still have fun just watching!!!LMAO
There are other ways of getting freebids like bidding on them ... or if like me your just starting out and want some free freebids then write up a blog poat like I have here send them the link and they will slip you a few freebie freebids...Planetbid also offer a points program where you earn points for bidding that you can spend.
Lastly if anyone does join up and have the inclination could you pop my user in as ref when you sign up so I can get some more freebie freebids my user id is Shawkes :o))
