I've been playing around with the idea of using paper clay for some time. I finally got my hands on some on my once a year trip to the far off Hobby Lobby. I recently joined a great group Creating the hive and all of my most admired artists are there and guess what? They answer questions and share techniques! I am in creative heaven!

Anyhoo getting answers to my questions helped me gain enough confidence to try paper clay to make a face on a soft bodied doll. I had so much fun! I haven't sculpted since high school and did better than I thought I would. She needs more work and a lot of sanding and is more prim than I've ever done before but I'm going to finish her. My creative juices are flowing again! And yes I FINALLY used the sewing machine! It still hates me so I'll probably end up hand sewing the arms and legs but I did the body successfully!
I still have 2 bald and limbless witches to finish so will be blogging more WIPs than I have recently plus Christmas things are on the verge of exploding out of me so get ready! Have you tried something new and different recently? Tell me about it.
