Hello, I took a break from making belly dancers for a second to work on my custom order. June had me make her daughter out of polymer clay and dictated what she wanted. June had seen my henna doll (pictured below) with positive affirmations on its arms and wanted me to make her daughter like that but with colorful tattoo’s. I obliged and even attempted at making the doll resemble the woman a bit. It was a fun challenge to get the features similar and to have the hair look right, but the end result was well worth it. She reads: Peace, Love, Life, Hope, Passion, Pain, and Prosperity. I hand painted on each tattoo actually drawing inspiration and mimicking the ones found on my model. She is pretty darn cool, I think I will get her a green and black and gold butterfly for her back.
