Maya is my second attempt at a clay doll. I made the first one a few weeks before we left, and as you can see in the photo below, she needed A LOT of improvement!
For my next one, I will attempt to sculpt her entire face with the clay instead of painting it on. The first doll's nose and lips were sculpted, but more time and detail needs to be used while doing that part, they are quite tricky!
For all those who have been wanting to try Paperclay, please do! It's super nice to work with and has a lovely consistancy. And another bonus is it has a smooth, velvety texture once sanded.
Just wanted to share one more pic of the newest addition to my doll collection. Aggie was made by Sarah, who I'm sure most of you are big fans of! She is the creator of amazing clay dolls and her work can be found at http://www.etsy.com/shop/blackeyedsuzie.
Aggie is a sweet little darling and her eyes, completely handmade by the artist, are incredibly soulful. Please stop by her blog to see what she's up to! http://blackeyedsuzie.typepad.com/
