We had our bead meeting at Gualala Arts in the Board Room with 10 people in chairs and about that many who wandered in and out. I had brought the above projects, but among my stuff was a bunch of molds of doll heads, and it was decided that we would do that. Thank goodness I had watched a tutorial on You Tube on how to make doll faces more realistic by cutting open the mouth, poking in nostrils and setting beads in the eyes. Nearly every one got at least one head done and a couple people are interested in making molds of more dolls.
Mike Henderson wanted to make canes (not dolls!) so we discussed various techniques and decided that we would each study up on the process and have a 'cane contest' by the next meeting. Stay tuned.
