I bought myself a Birthday/Christmas gift....something special just for me:) Her second DVD called Cloth Doll Inspirations.
When she started by first dampening the doll face I was a bit skeptical but now I want to try it myself. It gives such a different quality and look.....lovely.
She also shows how to use Coptic style marker pens to create a doll face. It gave the face a very beautiful soft quality but I would say that it would be a technique that needs a bit of practice first.
She also shows how she uses wooden beads for doll joints. I've seen them on various dolls but seeing how she embellishes them was really interesting and something I'll try as well.
There are lots of tips and little goodies......purses, hats and shoes....very sweet....organza faerie wings......(I need one of those mini soldering irons).......ribbon roses, crystal flowers....lots of ideas using beads and embroidery.
Embellishing is not one of my strong points when making dolls but I have to say that after watching her video I'm inspired to try using all these techniques and start making some new dolls.
Here is a video trailer I found over at YouTube....just a little peek.
I don't get any remuneration from mentioning Patti's video....I'm just a big fan of her work and I have to say that I totally enjoyed both DVD sets.
