Saturday in Dollandia

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!

Wow! I'd love to see what else you make. I just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog and enter my giveaway, and also for the birthday wishes and kind words about my work. :) And if it's any consolation, it's freezing cold and grey here mostly at the moment...

I make my dolls from Salt dough - it is so quick and totally 'moldable'

I think I might have seen your dolls legs during OWOH and I may have copied??

I saw so many inspiring things....
