I simply had to post the second doll that I finished. As you can see she has quite the metal jacket! Thought it too funny to add nipple rings. lol Her goggles were made from a watch band that seemed to work perfectly. The wheels I found in the doll house section of Hobby Lobby. It almost makes her look more Civil Warish! More like canon wheels! lol
Her wings quite adorned with more metallic options of bells and whistles. It's how she rolls!
She wouldn't be complete with out a key to wind her up!
I also finished making several medallions.
This one was just too whimsical!
I also decided to work on some ATC's for a trade and the theme was love. I was still in the metal mood with the background treatment. I used the metallic tape onto a card and then used one of my lino block pieces as a basis for a rubbing the design to be impressed into the piece. Afterwards I used black acrylic paint and covered the entire piece and wiped it leaving the color in the recessed areas.
In between being a metal smith, I did get back to quilting and finished this one up for Mary. These are the colors that I want to work with in my bedroom.
I also got one of Suzan's quilts finished. Such a variety of fabrics!
Well time now to regroup as I know I will be working on the floor in the studio soon, so I shall hang up my torch and goggles, needles and threads, and switch to carpentry skills.
