To start with I trimmed a piece of styrofoam down with that nifty styrofoam cutter that you see in the back of the photo. The trimmed piece is in the front of the photo. I also used some green wire that I bought a long time ago that I retrieved from my stash to fashion two longer pieces for the legs and two for the arms. I connected the two styro pieces together with that short piece of dowel rod that you see along with some glue for stability. I then inserted the wire for the arms and legs along with a little more glue for stability. Once I had all of the body parts put together I covered them with the Creative Paperclay® and inserted the eyes. Here’s what the doll looked like when it was covered with clay, dried and ready to paint:
I also used a flower that I painted and glued on later after I finished painting my little doll up. Check out what she looked like after I got her all dolled up! hehe
So do you think that you could make your own dolly using Creative Paperclay®? I certainly think that you can! What do you think I should name her? Please leave a comment because I love hearing from you! Thanks for following to all of you new members!
