This past Saturday, I felt in need of some immediate gratification. I came from the world of labor intensive porcelain dolls. It's just not possible to make one in one day! I instead chose to use Paperclay. I don't often make my figures out of Paperclay, chosing instead (these days) to use ceramic clay. I was very happy with the feel of the clay, the blendability and of course, the drying time!
I wanted a non-perfect, almost Tim Burtonish face and a very poseable body. I made her body from wood and the arms and legs are Paperclay over wooden dowels. I hope you enjoy seeing her!
