Homespun Dolls Welcome

Hello Welcome to HomespunDolls blog page. I am a self taught doll artist who creates fantasy art dolls. All of my little ones live and work in a little piece of my backyard called Elftown. During their creation they all have their own personal story that is told just for them. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do making them.
You can follow me on Twitter @HomespunDolls and Facebook HomespunDolls.

Pumpkin Boy

I sculpted pumpkin boys head out of polymer clay over a walnut covered with masking tape. His arms and legs were something new for me, I used epoxy putty. I wanted them to look gnarled and viney but be strong enough to withstand shipping. I got what I was looking for and it was easier to do then I thought it would be. I used regular hardware store putty (loctite) which sets up very quickly. Its not something you can get that smooth seamless look with but it is perfect for a fustic rough look. It also took the paint rather well.

Mildred Witch and her man Jack Pumpkin

Poor Jack, breaking off a marriage proposal to witch just wasnt very smart. Broken-hearted Mildred turned him into a pumpkin and has kept him near her ever since. 50 odd years as a pumpkin has turned Jack into a rotten old gourd.
