My Purpose

I have spent numerous hours trying to perfect the method of using polymer clay. This means finding the perfect mix that has minimal blemishes and good strength that will hold up well for shipping. I have also developed a packing method that is different than most and quite secure that has served me well. When I sculpt, I try to keep the potential buyer in mind, making the best possible allowances for safe shipping and durability.

“Too much work” is a phrase that I push out of my mind when it comes to the details of sculpting. I strive to make sure that the quality meets or exceeds industry standards. I cover all paint used with either a glaze or a layer of polymer clay to prevent chipping or scuffing. I use sturdy wire armatures as needed to provide strength and stability to a pose. I do not use “hot glue” for any of my pieces as it tends to let go very easily. Nor do I use super glue. My wigs are generally embedded into the head of the doll, and depending on the size, my dolls may be lifted by their hair.

I use a wide variety of materials to embellish and complete my dolls. Wings are made from a variety of materials, such as plastics, clays, wire, and papers. Clothing is also made in a variety of ways dependant upon the design of the doll. Cottons, muslins, polyesters are a few examples, but some clothes are hand tatted, or made from polymer clay, and sometimes even hand designed paper is used.

The hair of my dolls is made also from a variety of materials. It all depends on the look that I’m seeking for the particular piece. I use mohair very little, as the scale of it isn’t quite right for such small dolls. I like to use polyester fibers, or soy silk, bamboo, and sometimes viscose which is made from wood.

I love to experiment, and do it very often, so you will see a wide variety of designs.

In the near future I will also be offering design services under the name of elder dragonfly. My design services will be aimed towards the individual artisan who is seeking a web presence to accompany their online sales. The sites that I design will be as a suplement to an already existing selling process, such as online auction sales, or email sales.

The revolution of valet podiums

Creating an emotional connection is very critical in advertising, but you cannot use the same techniques as advertisers used in the 70s, 80s and 90s. Things have progressed. In today’s environment the advertiser who can personalize their message, through access to the best data, segmentation tools, and sound tactics, has a clear advantage.
Little about the fundamentals of advertising has changed in the last few decades. The principle visual podiums difference lies in the method of multi-channel attack. There are many facets of traditional marketing and examples might include tangible items such as business cards, print ads in di3newspapers or magazines.  It can also include posters, commercials on TV and radio, billboards and brochures. The world of digital marketing continues to evolve and as long as technology continues to advance, digital marketing will as well. Examples of digital marketing include things like websites, social media mentions, YouTube videos, and banner ads. Specifically, digital marketing is similar to traditional advertising, but using digital.

What’s the price on a paint job?

Do you own a vehicle that needs a paint job? or maybe looking to cover an area that needs a new patch?  When thinking to paint a vehicle it’s really hard to estimate what the price will be. The good thing it’s that many Auto Body San Diego shops offer free estimates.  pj13

So what makes the process of painting a vehicle? There is different types of steps. Starting with a new coat of paint removing the grease and doing a power wash until all the paint it’s 100 percent removed. After this, all the parts out of the main part to be worked on has to be covered with tape, windows, wheels, etc. The vehicle it’s now ready for painting! A professional guy will use advanced paint mixer to match the exact color to the car. The painter applies it in even layers, after it’s out for sanding to bring the glossy out of it.
