Artist focusing on handmade paper dolls


Hi y'all!

My name is Phiona and I'm from my favorite place ever, Dallas TX! Woohoo!!! I have been here for a while now, and I love it because of so many good times. I got married to my high school sweetheart here, made life- long friends, adopted pets, and most of all had the wackiest roommate ever. She was crazy but so fun, loving, and inspiration. Furthermore, Dallas has a great art district, which allowed me to learn many new concepts and fine-tune ideas. A lot of my works are inspired by my family, friends, and Dallas. My main expertise is 3D paper dolls, but I also experiment with other mediums, such as charcoal, oil painting, photography, and so forth.

And here is a little bit about me. I was born and raised in Ho Chi Minh City, South of Vietnam. Since I was little, ... See full profile

1. Introduction : Hi, guys. Welcome. Dejected two of the complete course to create Korean DOS for beginners. This is Fiona. I am an honest and entrepreneur. In 2000 and nine, I came across Korean paper dolls, a type of technique to construct three day paper dolls. And ever since I spent a lot of time to create my own version and finally I was successful and distracted to I will walk you through High construct Korean Handbook outfit For how many? Doll? I am so happy to have you all of you today this term, right in. 2. Measurements : Let's go over a list of measurement for here. We need five pieces. Thesis. Anybody 10 sent to me does These trees are for by 22 centimeters in the last one to buy 22 centimeters. Move on to her skirts. This white a buy 10 centimeters is for the petticoat, and this aid by 15 centimeter is 40 outer skirt. These two small species are 3.5 by five cent in years and therefore making sleeves. This five by six centimeters rectangle is for the plows, and of course, it would need about for her script. This 1.5 by five centimeter is just for that purpose. To add. Morning tells to the plows we have this tiny one point once into Mediaset for the sleeve hands. The last two pieces are 20.5 by nice centimeter for ribbon and color. That's it. So we need for chapter to accept all the regular tools, like the Caesar Ruler pencil, a clue and so on. Also, please check out the project question. Doubt we love for the list. All the management's. In the next video, we'll jump writing to putting together the petticoat and out of skirt. I'll see you there 3. Assembling petticoat: I start with the petty coat to create a ruffle defect, mutual thumbs and your index fingers slightly. Pull the corner of a paper out, then release it and move on to the next section about center feet away and cool and we lose again. Continue doing so until you finish the legs at the paper with your thumbs and your index fingers one more time located midpoint slightly forward to stretch a paper out on Lee stretched apart from the mid point out to the ruffle. This will help make the dress with puffy. Now we will clue this headed. Go to a body about 1/3 down on his shoulder while clearing the skirts like pinch. The paper alone is waste lying to play fleet. If you're fine using clue to be too messy and take too long to dry, you can switch to hot proven. Just remember that when dry hot yoga intends to make the waistline more foky, - close the edges together to complete the petticoat. Now we are ready to move on to the outer scraped 4. Assembling the outer skirt: we will repeat the same process. Riddick with petticoat Tuas embody out of skirt, starting with the rough or defect. They're stretching the paper to Greg Puffiness clue in the script to the waistline and pinching to create pleads. However, Joe's not too clued the just off the skirt together as that Hao Han bak appears in all the ruble preachers I found. Take other about. Stretch it out to maximize the length. Include onto the waistline with your index and middle fingers. Carefully ancient in the disc rates and Grand Amara to strengthen Father. You can repeat this that any time you feel like it's just deflate and you move all of them . I'll see you in the next video when we will put the sleeves together. 5. Assembling the Sleeves: Let's start. Example, ing the sleeves. Take out two pieces for the sleeves into pieces for the hams, user ruler or anything with string at places in the meat off the hamline. Twice push the hand against the edge, then for the ham and half and repeat with the other one. - Now cool these hands onto sleeves. This part is in your tricky at clue on two D outside of one end of the assess him and run along the edge of the sleeve , then rolled off the edge of the sleeve. On top of it. Any more clue to the are the end of the ham to secure in place. You get the whole classes to complete. The others was the seem line facing down measured asleep against her arm and might worthy under arm line up with the sleeve. We would trim off bad from this mark to the top of the sleeves and flew onto the show all the way down under arms slight. This leaves onto the arms and security in place. In the next video, we're gonna finish putting together the plows. I'll see you there 6. Assembling the blouse: take the piece of five by six centimeters for in half from both sides, length and width to locate its midpoint, then unfold and cut half of the paper into half. A long agrees from there. Make two cuts off two centimeters. Itch outward perpendicular to the media cut. - Then a lot of media cut measure about one centimeter down from the big point of the paper cut towards both ends. To form a triangle. - Take a piece of 0.5 by nine centimeters. We will fold this piece to form around the border off the triangle. - Try the plows onto your doll to see how it fits just if you need to. They include onto the doll. Take the other piece of 0.5 by nice centimeters to make the ribbon cut to setting me off and set it aside was the longer part. Photo not two centimeters off. Hold the longer tell. Leave about one centimeter from the boat and then 48 hours to make an angle off 60 degrees with shorter tell. Finally used to sending, you know, piece that we cut off only to completely ribbon as show. Then clue the ribbon onto the colors And there we have it. Put plows in the next video. You're gonna go over. I have to make your hair. I'll see you there. 7. Assembling the hair part 1: still with the eight by 10 centimeters to wrap the head slightly, stretched the bottom off the paper and then at clue estimate where you want him to be from the back of the head to the front. Then place the back of her head on the meat off the paper and pulled to Connors to in front stretch and smooth them out as far as you can to cover the top of ahead. Finally, trust the assess here to creating a bun. Add more clue if needed in the next video, gonna walk you through finishing our hand with more breaks. 8. Assembling the hair part 2: take three pieces off four by 22 city leaders. Spit one ends into three equal parts. Why keep er Doan's intact, trust them and then started rating to the n word clue and repeat with the attitude. Now through all three. Race together using binder clips to hold him in place and start breaking them together one more time. By doing this, we will create a volumizing upgrade us they dry fluid around her head, right of both the hairline, starting from the back of her head to the front. - Take the last piece of two by 22 centimeters braided, just like we did with the previous three. - Include around a fun and all the way down to the bigger brand of bottom. Trusty assess break To create a Taliban we almost done in the next video. We're gonna go ahead and drop the phase e and outdoor will be complete. I'll see you at the last step 9. Drawing the face: Lester. Drawing her face in your mind, Draw an invisible line in the middle in cocaine where you want us to be. Use this pencil to sketch roughly before going in with a shop you pin when you already used black Sharpie pen with the smallest tip and go over your sketch. Since the surface of crepe paper is not even, it would take months. Four strokes to get a thickness and darkness you desire. - I also at two orange circles on her chicks, since I saw Korean Price with him all the time and they look so cute. But this is totally optional. - To prevent a paper from fading over time, I add Martin Touch as a final protection. - Let it dry and our dollar is now completed. 10. Final touch up: is a final touch on my door to bring her to life. I hold her holding a rose. But you can go with your creativity and something else. Maybe have her hold a pose off basket of flowers. Star is the limits and I can't wait to see what you come up with. 11. Congratulations! : thank you, everyone, for participating in this course with me. I hope you find it helpful and inspiring.
