Hello, gentle readers. Hope everyone is keeping healthy, happy and sane during these strange times. As always, I’ve been busy puttering about in my home studio, making stuff. Recently, I purchased one of those fancy cutting machines, which opens up a whole new realm of creative possibilities. After several days of struggle with both the printer and the cutting machine — because nothing is ever as simple as the manufacturer suggests it will be, ever — I present one of the projects I finally managed to make: a magnetic paper doll.
This is Maude, a Victorian-era spiritualist medium. She uses the gift of her mystic Third Eye to gaze upon the spirit realm to communicate with dearly departed souls. Occasionally during a séance, the contacted spirits will manifest physically in the form of ectoplasm, a whitish, gooey substance.
Maude comes dressed in her Victorian-era undergarments including corset, chemise and bloomers. She has a lovely day dress which she wears during her séances (the white ectoplasm contrasts perfectly against the two-tone green material), an outfit of full Victorian mourning attire, and a hooded blue High Priestess robe to wear during moonlit magick rituals in sacred forest groves.
This magnetic paper doll will adhere readily to your fridge, dishwasher, or any metallic surface suitable for magnets. Magnets have a good, strong hold.
Size of magnetic doll= 7.875″ H x 4.5″ W
Nifty. This magnetic doll was printed on glossy magnetic paper with my inkjet printer, and then cut out with the Silhouette Cameo 4. You can find Maude in my Etsy shop Papercut Puppets.
