Photo Challenge ~ Tiny May 20, 2011

Posted by nrhatch in Art & Photography, Magick & Mystery, Nature.

These are not original photos.

You may have seen them before.

But when I thought of something tiny.

These strolled through my mind’s door.

Talk about holding perfection.

In the palm of your hand.

Art by Camille Allen ~ Artist Dolls and Sculptures . . . and they are For Sale.

They are so cute …..and tiny

nrhatch - May 20, 2011

Aren’t they precious? From their noses to their toeses.

Oh my goodness hey are so cute!

nrhatch - May 20, 2011

When I first saw them, I heard they were made of marzipan (almond paste).

That seemed rather nasty ~ way worse than biting the ears off a chocolate Easter Bunny or eating a marshmallow peep.

Fortunately . . . they are NOT edible.

So tiny and adorable!

nrhatch - May 21, 2011

The artist is 30 years old and loves babies. There are photos of her at work creating the miniatures on her site.

I’ve seen this before and just like when I first saw them, I thought AWWWWW! So precious and lifelike!
The artist who did these is so amazingly talented!

nrhatch - May 21, 2011

I’ve seen them several times and had always heard they were made of marzipan.

Yesterday, I did some digging and found that is not true. I confess to being a bit relieved. 😀

They are adorable. Are they ceramic forms? 🙂

nrhatch - May 21, 2011

I don’t think so. According to the artist:

I use various kinds of professional doll sculptors’ clay to make the babies. The babies have soft English mohair to imitate fine baby hair and are blushed with paints for realism to enhance their tiny wrinkles and creases.

Beautiful photos Nancy thank you for sharing them this morning.

nrhatch - May 21, 2011

This is the first photo challenge where I have not used my own photos ~ seems a bit like “cheating.” But these baby dolls seemed perfect for the theme and I love to promote artists.

10. Clar http://Clarbojahn.wordpress.com/ - May 21, 2011

I think they are great! Thank you for sharing.

nrhatch - May 21, 2011

Glad you enjoyed, Clar.

so cute!

nrhatch - May 21, 2011

The detail that she achieves amazes me.

12. viewfromtheside - May 22, 2011

they are just magic, perfect and each different

nrhatch - May 22, 2011

I agree. The postures, the eyes, and the tiny mouths each convey something a bit different.

13. Linda - May 22, 2011

Oh oh oh I am about to jump all about! Those are the cutest things ever!!!!!!!! I bought some molds to make some of those and I never did. Now I want too. Now if those photos don’t make us all smile something is wrong.

nrhatch - May 22, 2011

Linda, I adore your enthusiasm! They do, indeed, make me smile.

If you make some sometime . . . post photos!

14. Tokeloshe - May 24, 2011

They are beautiful and very well done!

nrhatch - May 24, 2011

Her attention to detail rivals yours, Tok. 😀
