I’m not sure if I ever truly saw this day. Antoinette’s transformation into Devon Aoki has not been without issues. Working at something in 1/4 scale without the proper tools and with large human fingers when miniature ones are needed is frustrating. Okay, it’s infuriating. I threw in the towel more than once. But, my dogged determination kept me going. And since my client seems thrilled with the outcome, I am more than pleased with myself for seeing this project across the finish line. Added bonus: I learned a whole lotta stuff about sculpting onto doll vinyl. Don’t know if/when I might try it again, but something tells me that I won’t be able to keep my hands off the sculpting clay for too long. 🙂
Miss Aoki got a boil perm this morning and had her final photo shoot. She will soon be on her way home. I will breathe a huge sigh of relief when I hear that she is safely with her new owner.
Here are a couple shots of the OSSified Devon in 1/4 Scale:
Here’s the final comparison strip so you can see how the eye sockets were completely filled in:
