The kokeshi doll I made for Craft It Forward is finally finished! I had to make some comprises, but I’m happy with how she came out. I like leaving a lot of the natural wood showing on kokeshi and I’ve been doing it more lately, partially because it’s more traditional and partially just because I love the way wood grain looks :3
I photographed the other kokeshi the same way and I’ll be revealing them soon. I really like the background and I’m working on making the shop look more “natural.” The kokeshi always look wrong to me when they aren’t in the studio or on my display shelves, so I decided to give the wood background a try. There’s no real way to photograph them on my beloved, paint splattered desk without the photos looking kind of lazy, so this was my middle ground.
More studio photos are in the works too, I had a really productive Tuesday and Thursday this week, lol! :D
