i made my first polymer clay doll recently. she was made for a project barbara and i are working on....creating an autumn crone to celebrate the coming of fall.
i used an earring holder as armature; which is why she has shoulders like a quarterback. i made the head under barbara's direction. i had no idea how to even start to sculpt a face. much harder than i would have imagined.
the hair was fun, tho.
her skirt is made of hand dyed silk; the leaf is an applique cut from an old jacket.
