If you would have told me that I would one day paint a full-body silicone doll by Claire Taylor and be proud of it? I would think you were crazy.
You see, I had given up on the idea of being a silicone artist. I remember making the declaration that I was never going to paint silicone dolls, it is too hard and too expensive and frankly, too sticky.
I am not sure why, or how, but one day I had this epiphany that I could just try again. That it was ok to fail, as long as I was failing forward.
Is she perfect? Heck no! But she is the best silicone I have painted so far, and that is the goal, keep trying, keep going, keep learning.
