paper clay doll # 3

let the mess begin! Creative Chaos...


Gorilla hands will not do! I have to remake them.


Yes, I know her legs do not match in thickness...ah well



It really helps to make a scale drawing to follow.



On to doll # 3 in my paper clay doll making adventure. She is going to be small, about 6.5" inches tall. Her theme - something about time going too fast, middle age, middle passage...the thoughts tumbling around in my head at this moment in time in my own personal journey. Thoughts are marinading and ideas are coming into focus as I make her and she presents herself to me. She will let me know her message...


Her hands I made are WAY TOO LARGE...so I am experimenting with polymer clay and paper clay to see which works better for me to make tiny hands...last night I made hands 4x out of polymer clay and these in the photos above- all still too large and gorilla like...onto to hands # 6- eventually I'll hopefully get to where I can live with them and they won't be so gorilla like!


I made her feet large on purpose. I want them large and she will be wearing ballet slippers. This much I know. The rest, well, like I said...she will tell me...

Is that how you make wonderful dolls like that? I think you are doing great and what a good idea to use a scaled drawing. I wouldn't have thought of Colleen's idea either but then....I haven't made a doll like that. Very interesting...
have fun..
