I finally got around to accessorizing and listing the 2 outfits I made back in October/November when we were still in Georgia! These were the outfits I made using a purple gingham ribbon I found at Walmart for $1...for a 5 YARD spool!!!! Abbey Bominable is modeling the dress that has been accessorized with a black oval purse with a white Cat's Eye oval stone 'clasp', a lilac edged black rose hair pin, a pair of silver drop earrings and a silver glass beaded necklace.
Clawdeen Wolf models the co-ordinating outfit. The halter top matches the ruffle edged denim skirt. I have added a fringed black satin wrap, and a hand made satin purse. This outfit also includes a pair of Purple Velvet Swarovski crystal earrings. (however those are for the standard earred MH gals, still trying to figure out how to make earrings for Clawdeen!)
I did some playing around with resin earlier in the week. I had worked with Ice Resin last year and really liked it. My intention is to mold and cast copies of some of the amazing early Barbie bottles I have collected. I have tons of neat perfume, kitchen and bath styles. While my results then were pretty good, the molding compound was not the best. So last week I used a coupon at Michael's and picked up a box of Amazign Mold Putty and I also found a casting kit for babies hands and feet on clearance! I first played around with that and made molds of and then cast 2 pair of Monster High legs. These will be my "lasts" for making shoes and boots for the Monster High dolls! Hopefully this will allow me to us polymer clay and then make well fitting shoe forms! After doing just that I used the Mold Putty and made molds of the shoe forms I had sculpted and cast a pair of resin shoe bases. (these didn't work out real well as the materials I chose to mix into them settled. But they were ok for a first try.) Since I had resin left over I filled some Barbie glasses...I made some martinis, water with lemon, a jar with a fish, as well as just randomly filled 2 other jars. I love playing with resin but really need to get some more molds made so I can start casting those lovely bottles I have! :-)
