Start with a ball of paper & tape it onto a wooden skewer.
Wrap it with clay to form the head.
When the clay drys, glue the head to the skewer with Aleene's tacky glue.
Take wire and wrap it around the skewer, cut off excess skewer at the bottom if necessary.
With wire, form 8 ovals and keep open in the middle. Hook one oval into each loop on the armature and then interlock another oval into that one.
Once loops are in place, tape the center closed.
Bulk up armature & limbs with tape, paper, foil, etc., leave joints loose for movement in the piece.
Wrap armature and limbs with clay leaving the joints free to dangle as done in the previous step, this is crucial.
At this stage where the limbs and head has dried, I begin to work on the face. Work in layers as you would do with anything else, sculpting and allowing it to dry before sanding the piece down for smoothness. When you are satisfied with the face, paint the piece wit acrylics and seal to prevent from chipping.
Here I just glued some lambswool onto the dolls head with the Aleene's tacky glue.
Above are just a few photos of my posable doll. I hope you all have fun making these as I did!
