Dear Doll Makers,
Beatrice is an elderly fairy who is both wise and frugal--learn the entire doll making process by making her! Learn how to make a proper armature, then sculpt her from a lump of polymer clay. Learn how to paint her, how to make her clothing and finish by making her lovely butterfly inspired wings. When you have finished the complete course you will have an elderly fairy art doll of your own.
Though rich in content that's valuable for any level, this course is especially perfect for beginners because Beatrice makes a great starter doll. Mistakes just give her more character.
Be sure to try out the free lesson on making the armature (scroll down)!
What's Included in the Complete Course?
15 Video Lessons: Look over my shoulder as I create the old lady fairy and let's make her together! Enjoy over 90 minutes of video instruction.
Step by Step eBook: Eight pages will guide you through making the old lady fairy step by step. This eBook was designed in PDF format so you can easily print it and check off your progress as you go through the videos. Every step is time-stamped so you can easily find the information demonstrated in the correlating video.
Supply List: The Quick List is meant for those who probably have many of the supplies on hand already, so they're just looking for a quick checklist. The Detailed List is below the Quick List. I wrote the Detailed List for everyone but I'd especially suggest looking it over if you're new to polymer clay. You also get a PDF version of the supply list. Print it up and use it as a shopping list if you prefer to shop locally.
Doll Template: Print out the doll template & use it as a loose guide to decide the proportions of your doll.
I'm looking forward to sculpting Beatrice the Thrifty Fairy with you from start to finish!
"I have to say though I am taken back by the amount of work you have
put into your tutorials and what you provide for those who undertake
As a retired classroom facilitator I totally recognise, appreciate and
thank you for the amount of time and effort you have put into
everything I have seen of your work.
You are extremely thorough and it makes it easy for one who would love
to have even a small portion of creative juice flowing through my

"I finally got through all your totally awesome packed course! I absolutely loved it!!! You really gave it’s worth, and then some. So much info, that is usually broken up into individual lessons for purchase. I love that you put your all into what you do and share with the world! You’re such an inspiration!
Here are the key points, I jotted down while going through it
* The supplies list is simple but is so easily overlooked! And the simple reminder for the Artist to print it and bring it with to the local store.
* I found it inspiring, and felt the extra value of the storyline, video of images, and encouraging imaginative ways you guide the artist through any challenges, and help them see them as growth. Loved it!!! I also feel that is a key to truly feeling and enjoying your art, as an artist.
*The reference photos were sooo helpful!! I love how you super imposed them as well. It makes sculpting along with you much easier!
* The extensive anatomy! Oh so helpful and is lacking from many tutorials. You really went above and beyond and it will make a sculptor that much more knowledge!
*The time stamps were incredibly useful! With such a large and informational course, being able to stop and start where you need to, leaves more time to sculpt and less frustrations."

"Caroline is a detailed instructor who anticipates your needs and responds before you realize it. Should you have a question, she is more than happy to help, but be prepared to stay. Reality will slowly disappear and you will be mesmerized by your creations and possibly create a story and a world of your own."
- Sharon H., Reviewing Sculpt a Mermaid Complete Course
"Thank you for such lovely videos. Not only do they help us that are trying to learn but they also bring me joy to watching them. I can be having a real crappy day and go watch your video and poof it is like magic I will have a smile on my face."

My daughters and I started playing around with polymer clay in 2015. One day while searching online, I stumbled upon incredibly life-like polymer clay dolls.
What an unforgettable moment!
When I saw what could be achieved with polymer clay, the same clay I had been using like a toy with my kids, I knew immediately I had found my artistic calling and lifelong pursuit--I didn't want to do anything else.
I started sharing my passion on YouTube in 2016. My polymer clay tutorials have since been viewed over a million times and my channel has grown to over 25,000 subscribers. It's been an incredible privilege to be able to share my sculpting journey with tens of thousands.
