What I've found out is that both projects show me ~ how to utilized each techniques into others craft areas. For the soldering and wire project, it's the use of color (picture in pendents) with metal.
The cloth doll, I've used the wire in the arms and fingers, (no pipe cleaners this time) as well as color coordination of attire (stocking and boots) and new eye lids technique. Small half moon shape fabric sew on the lids of her eyes and stuffed with a small amount of polyfill. Adds a completely different de-mention to the face of this doll.
Both project are not completed as of tonight, kids back to school tomorrow, and award Volleyball banquet in the evening.
But I do get to meet with June tomorrow, she is the daughter of her late mother who was a professional "porcelain doll maker" and she wants to give me her doll molds, or she was going to throw them in the dumpster. I couldn't let her do this, it breaks my heart.
So ~ I'll keep you posted on the next adventure, of this crafting journey that I'm on ~And loving the ride.
Cherish all your happy moments; they make a fine cushion for old age.
