Figurative Art Dolls

One of a Kind Figurative Fantasy Art Dolls by Kendra M Gilbert, Virgo's Alchemy. Made with high quality polymer clay and mixed media. My Art Dolls, are quite literally, manifested reflections of my innermost hopes, dreams, inspirations...and nightmares.

Dark Fantasy Art Dolls

One of a Kind Nightmarish Fan Art Dolls for the Strange and Unusual: Highly detailed, made with attention to quality, and longevity.

Merminoid Tails

One of a Kind Creations: Mermaids, Merminoids and other Creatures of the Deep. My Mermaid and Merminoid tails are soldered using a technique that increases strength, flexibility, and durability. I use all different types of materials to make my tails and fins including papers, fantasy films, and of course my favorite - polymer clay.

Creative Display Bases

Each one of my Figurative Art Dolls comes complete with a Highly Detailed, Handcrafted Display Base made with High Quality Materials...and a Touch of Madness.

No Molds - Ever!

All my polymer clay figurative art dolls and other sculptures are one of a kind, and made without the use of any molds.

Artist Inspired Art Dolls

With permission, there are times I will sculpt art dolls directly inspired by another artist. If I cannot locate a particular artist, or obtain permission, I won't sell that particular work - it stays with me, in my own fan art collection, for my own personal enjoyment and use.

Handmade Doll Eyes

My Doll Eyes are handmade using glass beads and special high quality 2 part resin. They are scratch and UV resistant. They are created without the use of any computer printed images, are hand painted, and light reflecting glass-like.

Drawings & Concept Art

A lot of times, I will draw what I'm thinking about creating. This gives me a chance to visualize it outside of my head before trying to sculpt it in 3D. I love to draw, and if time allowed, I would draw and paint as much as I sculpt - maybe after I retire one day...

Works in Progress

I officially renounced posting Work in Progress pictures due to my personal belief that it diminishes some of the magic behind the creative process, and takes too much time to make continuous updates - so, I will no longer be doing full-on WIP or "Work in Progress" posts. However, when I'm starting a new piece, somewhere along the line I may share a few pictures just to let those who are interested, see what I'm currently working on.

Hand-dyed Doll Hair

I Don't Always Dye my own Doll Hair, but When I Do, It's Pretty Awesome...

Faerie Wings

My Faerie Wings are soldered to increase flexibility, durability, and longevity. Like my Merminoid/Mermaid tails and fins, I use wide variety of different materials to make my wings including papers, fantasy films, transparency films, fabrics, cruelty-free feathers, and polymer clay.

Artisan Handmade Soap

My other Passion: Handmade Artisan Soap! Unique and unusual handcrafted with high quality ingredients, from scratch, the old fashion cold process way! Learn more about my Soap products by clicking on the menu above!

Unique Handmade Soaps

Whether I'm inspired by Alice in Wonderland, a Holiday, or a certain Time of Year - my unique handmade soaps are more than just high quality soap, they are also works of art.

Home of the Winged Soaps!

Virgo's Alchemy: Home of the Winged Soaps and Cupcake Soaps! Unique, adorable, functional - yet attractive. Great for gift giving, special occasions, or even just a personal treat. You can learn more about my bubbly soap concoctions by clicking on the main menu "About My Soap".

Meet Oz Goose

Ozzie, or "Oz Goose", is my beloved precious little muse who is with me each and every day in the Virgo's Alchemy Studio. He is pictured throughout the website, in his CGI alter-ego as a black cat, because truly, he is a mischievous and magical kitty in his true-form.

Other Interests...

For years I was a Mehndi Artist (Henna Tattoo artist) at local festivals and events in the St. Petersburg/Largo Florida area. I love the essence of Mehndi, not only is it art, but it also is very soothing and relaxing to receive.

Figurative Sculpture

One of a Kind, No molds - my work is inspired by my love for the strange, unusual, curious, and mystifying. I work primarily with polymer clay, however, I also love to use paper clays as well as 2 part epoxies.

Artisan Soap

Our Handmade Soaps are not only visually stunning, they are jam packed full of ingredients that your skin will love! Organic and NON-GMO, whenever possible - it is worth every single last bubble!

Other Work

Although sculpture and artisan soap making are my two passions, I also love to draw, paint and create miniatures. I adore all things "lost and found" and have a slight obsession with Steampunk, Faeries and all things Burton and Froud.

My Videos

Due to the recent change in our location, my ability to upload videos has been affected. I'm currently working on establishing a solution to this problem and be back updating our youtube channel soon! You can subscribe by using the link above the main menu - thanks!

Been so busy!

I haven't updated here in a while, and this website is about to go through a major revamp, so please be sure to bookmark me here or find me either on Facebook, Instagram, or Deviant Art. I'm currently looking for a home in my local art district, yes, I'm looking to leave the "online" selling scene. I will still offer my eyes, tutorials, and maybe a few other things through Etsy, but I've given this a lot of thought. I really feel having your work in a reputable gallery allows you to connect with your community, meet your collectors face-to-face, and be part of something bigger with your creative efforts.


Oh... and one more quick note: I've had a lot of folks message me asking me for a fairy wing tutorial, and I promise, when things settle down a bit, I will create a tutorial for fairy wings as well. I'll be adding to my eye tutorial, so if you purchased that through ooakartistemporium.com or A for Artistic websites, or even my Etsy Shop, PLEASE follow the link in the tutorial to request to join the private "Let's Make Eyes" group. You MUST answer the group questions so I know where to verify your purchase! This group has ALL of my recent findings, product reviews and other updates pertaining to just the art of making miniature handmade glass-like eyes.

Anyway, so with all that being said, here are a few pictures of my latest piece,

`You ought to be ashamed of yourself,' said Alice, `a great girl like you,' (she might well say this), `to go on crying in this way! Stop this moment, I tell you!' But she went on all the same, shedding gallons of tears, until there was a large pool all round her, about four inches deep and reaching half down the hall.

Blue Unicorn WIP

First layer of paint is on, more paint, sculpting, and eyelashes needed.

This is one of my latest projects, she is tentatively being referred to as "Blue" the Unicorn. She is a pure sculpt on wood plaque over metal armature. Her eyes are handmade by yours truly. She will be framed in with 2 part epoxy vines, flowers and other mixed media elements that will give her an enchanted and magical appearance. I will be offering her on Etsy for a limited time special price, only $99. My other work will also be available for just $99, but this is for just a short time. Normal price will be $180 once I return to normal pricing.
