Practice, practice! Just playing around with a new clay head I shaped… I like painting and drawing on the face the best. That’s when it starts to have more of a character (or caricature about it).
Maybe I’ll make this one of my mother molds when I’m done and try casting it.
Kind of reminds me of a barbie, but it’s also… not. So, this makes me feel unique. I was going for a more asian shaped face because the world needs more diverse dollies! Plus, maybe she looks kind of hapa, like moi.
Or, maybe this face is really just a lump of clay. :)
Drawing on the eyes and eyebrows to get some sense of where I can place things.
More to come hopefully. So I can figure out this porcelain ball-jointed doll thing.
Here are some of my previous runs at making dolls and doll heads:
- Creepsies before the eyes are painted
- Second time making a doll
- Progress photos on a doll
- Porcelain doll heads
