This week Galli Studios will start editing all the footage that was shot. It's a lot, believe me. It will be quite a challenge getting it edited down to 6 hours, but I know Andrew will do it beautifully.
This is one of the dolls I worked on while we were taping. The DVD will show how to do several faces, along with some of the techniques I use to create fabrics, dye laces and trims, apply hair, wire fingers, lots of sculpting, etc.
Most of the techniques are in my books. But, it is often nice to be able to actually see the artist working to see how they do things. Especially the sculpting parts.
Keep checking back often for the announcement of the release of the DVD. It should be the middle part of October.
While we are on the topic of dolls, I might as well show a photo of our newest grandchild. Our oldest daughter had her 3rd little girl Sunday, Sep. 4. Little Kaylahna was in a real hurry and came a couple weeks early. She weighed a hefty 8lbs. 1oz. and was 21 inches long. Good thing JB didn't go full term.
Here's her newborn photo:
Isn't she the cutest little baby? Can't wait to see her, but I'll have to wait until November. Off to Newbury Park, California this weekend to teach, then John and I head out to England and Belgium. Our daughter in Belgium is also due to have her 2nd baby at the end of September. More grandchildren. Yeah!
