Zombilla Darkmoon Two-sided Cloth Art Doll

I had a lot of fun creating Zombilla. She is created using all recycled fabrics and materials. All handsewn by me. Her hair was constructed by making each individul dreadlock and then sewing on to her head. Each dread was created using two strips of stretchy cotton fabric and then sewing them together creating a tube. I then stuff the tube and then attach to her head. Her dress was created by altering an asian doll shirt a friend gave me and a lace and sequins skirt a friend gave to me. I then created her stockings using a black and white striped tank I use to own which was from the thriftstore. I then made her maryjane shoes using black cotton fabric. On the other side of Zombilla there is fishnet stocking I created using netting from a produce bag. She is now on my etsy shop for sale. Feel free to stop by.

Skully Darkmoon Clay Lint Art Doll

To create Skully I piled up all the dryer lint I had been saving for a week into a bowl along with a whole bottle of glue. I mixed the glue and lint with my hands and it is very stick and messy but I like sticky and messy. I never was a clean and neat artist. All that matters is that the finished art creation is not sticky and messy. After I mixed the clay to the right consistency I formed the body ,legs,arms,and head all in one form. It took about 3weeks to dry because of the weird weather we've been experiencing here in California. Once the body was dry I put a primer of white acrylic paints on the entire body. This layer of paint took about a week to dry. And then I put in the finer details with painting the shirt with black and red stripes and skull and the black paints and shoes. I like lint clay better than polymer clay for the fact that it dries very had and solid and is not as fragile. I posted Skully on my etsy shop.
