Dear Doll Makers,
Learn how to attach the hands, sculpt the feet, and paint 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 3 of a 5 part series. In this mini-course you will attach the hands, sculpt the feet and paint the entire doll. When you have finished the mini-course you will have a painted old man fairy doll with hands and feet, just waiting for his clothing and his wings.
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 12 minutes of video instruction.
Step by Step eBook: Two pages will guide you through attaching the hands, sculpting the feet, and painting the entire doll, 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.
I'm looking forward to continuing to sculpt 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.
