Archive for April, 2012

Recently Mitzi and I were asked to show how we make our art dolls (goddess/spirit dolls).  Mitzi demonstrated her version here.  I will be streaming my version on Tuesday, April10 at 9:30 pm EST.  Jess was nice enough to let me use her usual stream time.

My art doll version is beaded, but uses the same basic framework as Mitzi’s. I have made a pdf of the line drawing for my beaded mermaid.  You can download the pdf here – Beaded Mermaid.

Supplies needed:

  • 16 or 18 gauge wire (for body)
  • 24 gauge wire to match beads ( for filling in framework)
  • seed beads
  • decorative beads
  • wire working tools
  • pins and foam core board optional

Link to my Ustream channel Painted Threads is here.

Hope to see you when I stream, just remember this is only my second time. 🙂
