I've been wanting to try my hand at a doll, an honest-to-goodness doll with moving arms and hand sewn cloth clothing. I've thrown all sorts of obstacles in my way, (why do we do that?) made up excuses for why I couldn't create one. How to do the armature, how to make the clothes with no sewing machine, how to sculpt it with paperclay and make it smooth and on and on. I finally decided that I can figure out the armature, that I can hand sew the clothes and don't really need a sewing machine, that I can make the clay smooth enough and that a few little bumps here and there just add character and define my style. So ...... one big gulp ......... and I begin a new path.
I will make an effort to record my progress. I love watching other artists wip's and I'm hoping you all will enjoy my attempt to create this doll.
