My journey into miniature doll making has been long ,very long. I want to welcome the young and not so young newbies to the world of miniatures. You are in for an exciting ride of challenges, successes and yes some failures too. My journey continues as I set new goal to improve and meet new challengers . My newest challenge is to be able to create portrait dolls. This idea has been percolating in me for quite sometime. I think my sculpting skills have progressed to a point where I think I can archive this goal. Well we will see. And yes I bought yet another book on Portrait sculpting." Mastering Portraiture." Now I do not think for a minute I will "master" portrait sculpting ,but I sure am going to try.
