Painting those Dolly faces

Marcia painting underglaze colours on dolly pendant.It's late - nearly 5 p.m. but I must do a little creative work. Until I do, I will feel the day has been somewhat wasted. 

Here are my three dollies at the moment. They have been biscuit fired and have been painted with underglaze paints which always look pale and insipid until they are glazed and fired.

3 ceramic pendant dollies now have their faces painted.

Painting these pendant dollies reminds me of the time a few years ago when I was heavily into creating one twelfth sized dolls for my dollhouse. Picasso may have had his 'rose' and 'blue' periods: Marcia has had many more (!) - including art/painting, animation, miniatures, ceramics and jewellery making. Considering putting up a page for past passion: my miniatures including mini people.

Your own comments and descriptions of your processes are very interesting Marce. I was looking for the dolly faces, but could not find them.

Gil, that's because they weren't there (sorry). I wrote the post before I'd taken the shots of the dollies. I'm keen to see what they will look like when glazed and fired. I'll post images then.

Note to Susan: Hi - I believe you were trying to post a comment. Maybe the website was down just for a short time or there was a problem with your computer. Do try again as I love to see posts and comments- let's me know that these blogs are not just going into the ether and are being read by someone! Right now, I'm off through the snow to my art group where I'll work on my Japanese Lady and try to repair the damage to her robes.

I adore these dolly faces. Feels like they could hang together into a row to make something beyond jewelry :)

Wow - a whole necklace of dollies! - well, maybe not -they could be strung together to make some sort of wall decoration....?
