A quick post to tell you what fun I'm having using Paper clay for the first time. I'm using Creative Paper clay that I have purchased from lovely Lin at Altered elements.
I had a 16 oz block and managed to get 6 dolls from that amount, heads arms and legs, I'm doing cloth bodies on them. So mostly I have done clay over cloth but some I have made the arms and legs and head first and then attached by gluing and sewing the body on.
They take a short time to dry if you put them in the boiler cupboard . Then I painted with acyrlics nd vanished over the top to seal and protect the paint.
This is my first one , and I m now dressing her. I'm trying to get an aged effect and look , a bit like an Elizabethan doll.
