Angel Custom Full Body Silicone

Here’s me and my friend Bonnie Sieben’s most recent work in progress. Sculpted by her and cast into an soft squishy platinum silicone, she has custom armatures in her arms. Painted and rooted by yours truly. She’s adorable is she...

“Angel” cloth body prototype silicone baby collaboration

Every so often I get reminded that women can be so extremely catty to one another.  Why do we do this? I have no idea.  Recently I was reminded that sometimes we women can only see each other as competition.  In the doll world (which as you can imagine is full of women),  it can be apparent that although we all are together for a love of something – we have difficulty just showing “love” for one another. Today, I am happy to say, disproves this theory for me entirely.  A collaboration among three women- an amazing sculpt by a woman I was so happy to “meet” online- Bonnie Sieben,  A silicone doll kit cast by yours truly in a soft squishy platinum Eco 20 silicone, and finally brought to amazing lifelikeness by the amazing Kristie Carwithen of the Dainty Loft. We three women, have been able to bring this baby girl to life and work happily with love and extreme admiration of each others work.  This girl sold for a record breaking $11,101.99 for a cloth bodied silicone baby on eBay today. I cannot believe how tremendously well she has done and I am so happy for all three of us.  Not only is this a wonderful collaboration among three different artists- we have shown that it’s possible to be friends in this “dolly world.”  This means to be honestly supportive of one another and see each other as contributors to this “art” that we all...

I’m a horrible

blogger. I know. I’m so sorry! I’ve been caught up trying to learn as much as I can about silicone.  Last time a bug bit me this hard was well, every time I learn something new.  I think it’s the OCD in me.  I have to learn EVERYTHING until I feel confident.  Who doesn’t like learning new things? Because of all of this research and video watching- not to mention the numerous test runs- I have finally been able to do one of the things of my “silicone” bucket list- and that is to cast a silicone baby with poseable arms!!   I really think it makes silicone babies much more fun and SO very fun to photograph! Introducing my newest silicone baby doll Kyle/Kylie, a newborn silicone baby- for sale probably sometime in January. Here’s a video so you can see his arm movement! I do have a couple of babies coming up for sale soon- so keep watch! And if you haven’t yet, sign up for our newsletter! You’ll know when new babies come up for adoption first!

introducing barkley

While waiting for some silicone to set I sculpted this little guy.  His name is Barkley and he’s a spunky little fellow.  He loves playing in the dirt.  This guy was casted into a platinum silicone (Eco30) so that he’s perfectly squishy! Now to knit this little guy a sweater.  He’ll be going soon on...

squishy babies

I have had a lot of people ask me how a silicone baby is different than a clay one.  Besides the fact that it’s less fragile to breaking when dropped.  They are soft and feel very real in your hands.  You still do have to be careful and treat it like a little one. No pulling of limbs, and support the little head. I made a little video to try to show her movement of my little silicone edition “Mia”. Click HERE to see the...
