Dear Doll Makers,
Learn how to sculpt and paint the head of this old lady fairy. Beatrice the Elder is a kind elderly fairy who will gladly offer you an acorn cap full of her toadstool soup if you are a forest wanderer without shelter. This is part 1 of a 5 part mini-course series.
In this mini-course you will sculpt the face, attach the face to the head, sculpt the ears, and paint her face. When you have finished the mini-course you will have an old lady fairy head, and you don't have to name yours Beatrice, though it is highly recommended, lol ;)
What's Included in the Mini-Course?
3 Video Lessons: Look over my shoulder as I make the head of the old lady fairy and let's make it together! Enjoy over 24 minutes of video instruction.
Step by Step eBook: Four pages will guide you through making the old lady fairy's head 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 how big your doll head should be.
I'm looking forward to start sculpting Beatrice the Elder with you!
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.
