Last night I made hands for a little 'doll' - Cirrus's brother Tarik.
The process of making hands, especially so tiny, is rather tedious. I make the wrist and palm first and let that fully dry. Last night I put on fingers, thumbs, knuckles etc. Each finger goes on separately - let it dry- put in the thumb- let it dry....
As I sat right beside the radiator, I placed the hand I had been working on, on the radiator, so it would dry while I worked on the second hand. And visa verso.
This morning I started sanding... and realized that I had made two identical hands... as in two right hands...
Now the saying goes (in Holland anyway) that if you can't do a practical job, you have two left hands... does that mean that Tarik, will be an extremely gifted little Cloud Fairy?
I made a left hand this morning.
or double trouble :O)
You've got me checking the feet now. they look okay .And a spare right hand wouldn't go astray
John, you migth be right about the double trouble, he is starting to look like a nice little 'handful' alright!
Feet were fine, thank gooness.
In a few days I hope to have Tarik dressed and ready for his photoshoot, before he goes and live in Midleton in Ireland.
