ZOOM Blythe Workshop Series with DM Blythe

Join experienced instructor Diane Sammarco of DM Blythe for a Kickoff and a THREE PART TRAINING SESSION Zoom workshop where you’ll learn the fundamentals of Blythe customization and create a lightly-customized doll of your own!  When you sign up, we’ll ship you a base doll, carving and sanding tools, and other customization essentials.  Throughout our sessions, you will learn the basics about Blythe and the customization process, as well as the nearly 50-year history of Blythe.  By the end of the workshop, you will have the skills and knowledge you’ll need to continue on your Blythe artistic journey!

You will need to have a current version of ZOOM on your device to participate. This is free software.

There will be a kickoff on February 6th with intros and coaching tips to make the most of the training -- this will be hosted at Earth Angels Studios -- you can attend in person or via ZOOM  -- all Training sessions will follow on Saturdays from noon-1:30PM NY time in February and March 2021. Dates are 2/6, 2/20, 3/6 and 3/20 via ZOOM.

In Part I, we’ll explore how to take apart your doll, create sleep eyes and perform gaze correction on your doll.  We will also talk about changing eye chips and choosing pull charms for your doll’s new strings.

In Part II, we’ll sketch out your doll’s features, and start using our carving tools to shape her lips and nose. 

In Part III, we will really dive into the carving and sanding process, using the tools provided.  Diane will also discuss using other tools you may already have in your arts and crafts arsenal.  By the end of this session, you will have a customized carved and sanded faceplate ready for sealing and makeup!

Diane will also provide participants with a materials list for the complete customization process, including the face-up and sealing.  Because of the variety of materials, styles, and methods used by artists in doing the face-up process, participants will complete that process on their own after the three-part Zoom workshop is over.  And of course Diane will be available to answer any of your questions about the entire customization process, during, between, and after the sessions!
