Squid Girl and Bunny Doll WIP

Squid Girl and  Bunny Doll WIP

It's been a while since I have posted some "work in progress" (WIP) pictures. What you see now is two dolls. On the left is my Squid Girl doll for the MRSBO Raggedy Anne Challenge. The doll on the right is going to be a simple little bunny doll. Perhaps my bunny will be an albino? I have not decided yet. There are so many beautiful breeds of bunnies to chose from it's like trying to pick one color from a big box of 100 crayons.

As you can plainly see, the faces are needle-sculpted cloth. But what you can't see, or feel rather, is that both dolls have been dipped in Paverpol. Now the heads are nice and hard. They're ready for the paperclay application. Paverpol creates the perfect surface for the rough process of sculpting refined features.

If you have any questions about how I make my dolls, feel free to leave a comment and I'll do my best to answer.

Happy Dollmaking,

I have four bunny dolls - which means I have a mini-collection. ;-) Can't wait to see what your bunny looks like.

Thanks Dixie. I am planning on making a little brown bunny. She'll wear a pink dress with a green apron. :) Check back for updates.
