Dear Doll Makers,
Learn how to make the armature, sculpt the body, and begin the hands of this old man fairy. Casper is a something of a cheeky fairy who doesn't take 'no' for an answer. He prefers to live near human homes because he finds many of our household items quite useful. Look for him around your potted plants.
This is part 2 of a 5 part series. In this mini-course you will make the armature, sculpt the body and start the hands. When you have finished the mini-course you will have an old man fairy body and the beginning of the hands.
What's Included in the Mini-Course?
3 Video Lessons: Look over my shoulder as I make the armature, the body, and the hands of the old man fairy and let's make him together! Enjoy over 15 minutes of video instruction.
Step by Step eBook: Two pages will guide you through making the old man fairy's armature, body, and hands, 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's body should be.
I'm looking forward to sculpting Casper 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.
