I'm in the middle of making arrangements to head overseas next month to teach at a number of locations starting in Albuquerque, NM. There is always plenty to do in preparation for a teaching tour like this. I have been making a number of moulds from my original head sculpts and making sure all my notes are in order. And booking tickets. And contacting friends. etc, etc.

Here is a mould I am making for a couple of "Historically Inspired " doll classes I am running. This will be cast in silicone in two parts to make press moulds for complete heads (for those students who are a bit timid about sculpting their own!) This head is loosely based on an Izannah Walker style of doll from about 1850.

OOh! wish I was in the right place! Good luck with all the preparations, I bet you're trying to pre-empt ALL eventualities!
And belated Happy Birthday, hope it was a good one. Take care

What a wonderful position to be in with your skills - to be paid to teach around the world.
Have a lovely time travlling and meeting your enthusastic pupils.
Hope the preparations for work and travel go well.
Have a lovely weekend :)

Wow those molds are amazing, I wouldn't have a clue how to make something as outstanding as that. You are indeed a very talented lady!
Have a wonderful and safe trip and successful classes!
