Now on Etsy!

Esmeralda has arrived and brought her favorite pets with her. Sitting atop a pretty flower hat is Ink the Spider and Blacky the Cat. Esmeralda is made from my own paper clay recipe and measures 14.5 inches tall including Ink. She is jointed at the shoulders and hips and can be posed sitting or with a stand. Her top is made from a vault velvet and the rest was constructed of fabric flowers. Her shoes are painted felt with vintage diamond buckles and velvet ribbon. Her cotton pantaloons are stuffed with premium fiberfil and accented with black lace. Esmeralda's hair is white mohair with black wool accents. She is signed on her upper back. She as well as Blacky have been painted with artists' acrylics and sealed with several coats of protectant.

This is pretty self explanatory. Perhaps you've been searching for a Lot of Doll Heads for assemblages or you would love to get ahold of Old Black And White Photos. Simply create a post asking for what you are looking for. The more specific, the better. 


If you have a piece of art or some supplies that you would like to trade with someone else, please share about it! Perhaps you have tons of watercolor supplies that you never use and would love to trade someone else for acrylics...Create a post! Who knows? Maybe the right person will read it.


Feeling generous? Down-sizing? Want good Karma? Offer something for free. Just be sure to specify if you are asking for shipping costs or not.
