Dear Doll Makers,
Learn how to sculpt the head of this little fairy. Lily is easily frightened so please move very slowly when approaching her.
In this mini-course you will sculpt the face, attach the face to the head, and sculpt the ears. When you have finished the mini-course you will have the very beginning of your fairy doll, you will have sculpted the head.
I encourage you to watch the promo video above because it's a great sampling of what's inside the mini-course.
What's Included in the Mini-Course?
6 Video Lessons: Look over my shoulder as I sculpt the head of a fairy and let's make it together! Enjoy over 30 minutes of video instruction.
Step by Step Printable: 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 this is your first polymer clay doll. Print up the PDF version and use it as a shopping list if you prefer to shop locally.
Doll Template: Print out the doll template to use as a guide to decide on the proportions and scale of your doll.
Thank you again and happy sculpting!
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.
