Several Galatees projects were done in partnership with the artist Delffey.
Contrary to the way of working I use for les Galaées (traditionnal handmade sculpting), Delffey uses digital modelisation and 3D printing.
Idylle project :
Delffey made the prototype of some pieces of a la carte Idylle dolls.
- Idylle hands.
- Idylle hight heel feet and shoes, based on the flat feet I hand sculpted.
- Some Idylle faces designed to fit the standard Idylle head back.
Myosotis is an hybrid project. The body is designed in 3D modelisation by Delffey, and the head is the Lazuli head I handmade some years ago, then I modified to fit this new body. After the 3D modelisation step by Delffey, I printed the body, modified it, sanded it and cast it. The work is still in progress. Now I am just modifying and sanding the doll.
