Creative PaperClay® April Tip making tiny hands by LuLu Lancaster

Creating tiny hands with Creative PaperClay® can be achieved relatively easily with some patience.

Hello again this is LuLu Lancaster with a simple tip to make long slender fingers with Creative PaperClay®
I start with a cotton covered Millinery wire. This gives the clay something to grab onto.

Shape a simple hand. My dolls all have 4 fingers ;) you can make more or less.

I mix up a slurry of Creative PaperClay® and water. You want it the consistency of a runny pudding.

Take the wire hand and dip it in the slurry. Using an old paintbrush wipe off the excess until you can see the individual digits.

Put your tiny hands in a piece of styrofoam to dry.

Once they have dried repeat the process. You will need to repeat this dip brush and dry about 10-15 times to get a good build up and the hands to start looking like hands :)

thanks so much for following along I hope you have found this little tip useful and Happy Hands!
