See What The New Project is with Creative Paperclay® !

I don’t know what inspired me on this project other than the cover of the Cloth Paper Scissors magazine for July/Aug. I just loved it! Anyway I decided I wanted to try to make my own version of a doll with Creative Paperclay® These are the items that I used in my project except for paint, eyes,and glue.

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!

This is so cute. Great job. For whatever reason the name Victoria came to mind the minute I saw her. Good luck picking a name.

Pretty creative! I've been meaning to try this stuff out. I just haven't got around to it yet. The project, none the less, looks great.
