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?
