New WIPs - Ready for Costuming

Here are 2 new WIPs (I see a pattern here)...I really am going to get them finished. I haven't worked with polymer clay for a while...I wasn't as frustrated this time as my skill has improved somewhat. The heads, arms, and legs are made from polymer clay attached to wrapped wire armature.

Find more photos like this on ADO art dolls only

I have tried a few different body techniques...I think the wrapped armature is my favorite.

TIP: I wrapped with pantyhose from the 99 cent store and padded here and there with batting. See my previous blog on the Doll magazine.

Stay creative!
