Puppen In Progress

I have once again been inspired to work on a new project by one of my etsy teams. There are some amazing doll and miniature artists in the EtsyDam team who work in polymer clay. I used to love making stuff out of fimo, and I so desperately miss working in clay that I decided to make some new dolls with polymer clay. I picked up some Fimo Effect the yesterday and started to work on a new doll head. I have not sculpted in about 5 years, so I figured I would be a bit rusty. I couldn't find my tools either, so I had to do all this with a butter knife.
I built the base for the head out of foil, and then covered it in gauze and plaster of paris.

I popped the backs off of a pair of plastic eyes I use for the Earthlies. I was having such a good time sculpting this, I completely forgot to take more in progress pictures.... so, here I have the final sculpt. It is actually in the oven right now.

I am going to make soft, jointed bodies for these. I have two more base heads made. I probably won't be able to get back to them until tomorrow night after the kids are in bed.

So far, I really liked the way the Fimo Effect sculpted. It got nice and workable in no time! I remember having to knead the clay for what seemed like forever. This blended really well, and held its shape while working.

Yea! Pumpkinhaus Puppen!!!
