Finshed my 1st Air Dry Clay Doll
I finally finished my 1st Paper Clay Doll, in an online class given by Marlaine Verhelst (2012). If you ever have the opportunity to take a class with Marlaine, go for it!
She is a great teacher. I learned so much more than I could have imagined, not to mention a new technique to create dolls. This Doll is very different they my usual. I love it/her... not sure what it is, lol!! A fantasy Doll... I'm having a hard time naming this Doll, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated:)
I sculpted the Head, Hands and Shoes using Paper Clay, painted using watercolor paint and the body is cloth over wire armature. The costume has a lot of hand work and fancy fabrics. The Doll stands approximately 24" tall.
I lost track of how many hours it took to create this doll. I don't think I would have even started if I knew how long it would take. I have a new respect for paper clay dolls.
Thank you for stopping by:)
