I've been itching to make my own doll for a while now... and I've finally done it! I joined an online class called Cloth and Clay Dolls (http://clothclaydolls.ning.com) and followed the video classes. Here's what I came up with!
She has a cloth body and her head and torso are covered (and sculpted) with clay. I gave her a head of mohair, and did a lot of painting all over her.
She's a bit rough - I need to work on my sewing skills - but I'm pleased with the way she came out. I hope to make more of these!
