Hi loves. I haven't posted in a while so I have SO MUCH to update you on. first let me Introduce my brand new sculpt! I made her body more detailed and more anatomically correct. No shame. She's not hiding a thing! I redesigned her joints and gave her brand new more detailed hands and feet. It was a lot of work! She is hand-made by me from scratch. Checkout the beautiful skin-like finish. I'll be posting her all dressed up. #theblackdollproject #blackwoman #blackart #womanartist #sculpture #sculpt #doll #blackdolls #africa #caribbean #jamaica #africanamericanart #afropunk #bald #bjd #bodypositive #nude NOT#barbie #blackgirlmagic

Pouring silicone tonight. #moldmaking #dollmaking #sculpture

I started the mold making process for hands, feet, head, shoes and eyes yesterday. Today I'll process and add the silicone. Next I'll complete the other half of these molds. If all goes well, when I'm finished with these sets all 24 pieces will have will have been molded. 🤗
