Changing clay (Living Doll)

Good evening! By the end of the 2012, I decided to tried a new polymer clay: Living Doll. From various forums I eared this clay was excellent and was used by doll makers worldwide. It is also perfect for beginners and those who like working with a softer polymer clay. I agree with this, since it’s texture is easy to work with and can be mixed with any of the Sculpey or Premo clay to create intermediate flesh colors. The color palette is more realistic than Fimo clay. However, I wasn’t quite sure with this clay since I was use to work with more brutal and rough clay. Also, I found various techniques to condition tougher clay. The best solution for me was to test this clay by creating several doll heads and others with a mix of Fimo Classic and Soft.

Thank you for watching

Doll Painting Preparation

Hi everybody! Making Clara was one thing and a challenging one, but it came to painting her…I was a bit scared. Many questions came into my head: What if she doesn’t look good? Is these acrylic paints are good? Do I have enough lighting? But at the end, after a lot readings and watching videos on YouTube, the only way for me to do it, was to practice on a default head sculpt.

First Painted Polymer Clay Head

That head was the first head that I’ve painted. I was a bit nervous but I’ve had to try the acrylic paints. The second photos on the left shows my second head painted. They were both created in February 2012.

First Batch of polymer Clay Heads

I can’t help it! I have to show you guys my first batch of polymer clay heads. I’ve try to use various labels from the beginning! I’ve use Premo, Living Doll and Fimo Soft.  I have to be honest, sculpting heads can be difficult, especially when it comes for eyes! The only way to do it…is by practicing a lot by visualizing, taking notes, watching videos and reading a lot professional doll or sculpting book.
