1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Wildflower on: February 21, 2012 03:25:57 PM
Thanks to the wonderful people here at craftster, I have finally figured out how to attach sculpey to soft plush bodies.

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=403645.0 <--takes you to the topic with instructions  Grin

I'm extremely happy with how she turned out! (Mostly, because I finally figured out how to do it!)

Sculpey, acrylic paint, felt and soft fur fabric were used.
Glass gems were used for eyes.

She is quite heavy as pellets had to be used to counter the weight of the sculpey face and horns.

I would love to hear your thoughts!  Grin

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / How to attach sculpey to plush/fur doll on: February 09, 2012 02:09:53 PM
I've looked around everywhere and if I've somehow missed this posted somewhere else could you please point me in that direction?  Grin Thanks

How do you go about attaching a sculpey/clay face to a plush/furry doll?
http://wereremjiff.deviantart.com/  <-- her work is an example. She states no joints or armature skeleton are used.

There are a ton of different people who do this, but the few I've tried to ask are keeping this secret on lock down! Roll Eyes Tongue
I've looked all over the internet and feel like I must be the only one who doesn't know how to do it!

I've tried experimenting...
I tried just gluing the sculpey to the plush, and the fur made that one a bust.
I tried gluing the sculpey to some basic cotton fabric and then sewing it on.  The fabric was clearly visible and it just looked terrible!
I tried poking holes in the clay to be able to sew it on like a button, again... we were in the "looking terrible" department.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Cheesy
