Well, straight away after I took a class with Claudine, I have started making a new doll, just not to forget everything I have learned. So it is my first independent doll :)))
This is what I've got so far:
Dreading making fingers and toes... :)))
It's almost 2 months as I am back from Belgium, but only now I got around writing about it in my english blog :)) The workshop with Claudine was awesome! I have sculpted my first doll with a help from Claudine.
I discovered that sculpting dolls is a very serious and labouring process :) We started with making a brass armature (soldering is fun!) and making a polymer clay scull.
Then we made a body and added legs
Oh my God, making toes is difficult! :))
Then we sculpted hands. The fingers are almost as OMG! as toes :)))
Then we added a face, and here is an almost finished doll:
And here is my fairy all finished. I am very happy with her!
I couldn't not buy one of Claudine's busts. Isn't she gorgeous??? What a hairstyle!
My name is Zuleykha. I am 34 years old. For as long as I remember myself, I always loved creating something with my own hands. I have been sewing clothes, knitting, stitching; then it was creating jewelery from polymer clay for a while. Now I am a very busy mum of a two years old little boy, and have a very little time for crafts, but I am trying to do as much as I can when I get a chance. One of my blogs is in Russian (Stitch'n'clay), the other one is in English (Zuleykha's polymer clay), they are slightly different in content, but they both have lots of pictures in them, so please choose the one you like, and (I hope) enjoy reading :)
