Gotta Love UTEE

Oct 22, 2012

I LOVE frozen Charlotte dolls but really don’t love the price that comes along with the original ones when I find them in antique shops. So I decided to make a mold using Mold-n-Pour from the two I’ve been hoarding for just the right project. Once the mold set I popped out each frozen Charlotte doll from it’s mold then filled both molds with clear UTEE.

I didn’t want to mix up a batch of white UTEE since I mainly use clear and just let it cool in my pot. Yes, I know… shame on me for not cleaning out my melting pot after each use but it is what it is… you really should clean it out after each use.  It’s really easy and takes no time at all… so in this case, do as I say not as I do.

Well as I’m sure you can guess, I’m thrilled with the results and the thing I love most is the dolls have a flat back which works perfectly for the kind of projects I create. Now I can make my own Charlotte dolls in any color my little heart desires and my little heart desires a lot.

Here are what the UTEE dolls, plus a little bust I created look like when painted with acrylic paints. I really like the faux patina which is so easy to duplicate. Just use two different colored paints and randomly apply them onto each doll with a dry brush. I have lots of ideas for these little beauties.

What do you think?

    Ms. Lisa..its been awhile. When I saw that you were doing the ‘frozen charlottes in the mold & pours Ihad to check it out.. as I have been wanting to this for for quite some time now.. I only have CLEAR UTEE… Can I create tan opaquish white doll with the clear by applying gesso and paint? Or must I use the white UTEE? UGH, our stores do not even carry it and I hate to pay shipping fees that are more than the product! Any brilliant ideas, thoughts … miracles that you can suggest for me? Yours turned out awesome.. as I was also wondering if these were YOUR CLEAR ones w/ patina ,,,etc, are they? If so, what was the procedure.. With your EXPANSIVE list of know-how and creativity ..I just know you can help! HELP!
    Hugs to you… Oh..yes, and stickles and glitter too!
