OOAK : Ida Ermelinda Carvalho da Fonte

Coming next : Ida Ermelinda Carvalho da Fonte, venerable ancient witch and fairless huntress of dragons.

Hello, worlds!

I’ll update this post when the sun shines and allows me to take better pictures.


Yes! The sun is shining brightly today, Monday, June 22nd. Thus, Ida Ermelinda Carvalho da Fonte has gone for a walk in the garden and here is the result:

Here are close ups of her bun, her shawl, made of fine hemp and Lurex wool, her shoe of Fimo and a hand made resin eye:

Here is a gallery of pictures she posed for, because she is such an elegant witch and dragon huntress:

I love that one! She can stand on her own and she has no defect, but a slight shine on her face, due to the use of a tempera varnish (yes, matt tempera varnish looks shiny on polymer clay). The polymer clay is Prosculpt and I’ve followed a tutorial form Apryl Jensen, a doll maker artist, to achieve the doll. The make up is done with water colours and ochre powder.

Plus, this kind of dolls are much easier to achieve than BJD and are pure fun to make. Therefore I’m planning to sculpt a couple of these ones.
