Hope I'm not too late!~

Challenge: Beater
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Alice poseable art doll

I've worked with polymer clay on and off (mostly off  Cheesy) for about two years but have only really made charms and things of that ilk. I decided to try my hand at a pose-able art doll. So many new techniques to try! She is just a touch over 6 inches (not including her crazy hair) and was inspired by Alice in Wonderland - hopefully that's kind of obvious! - in a sort of Marie Antoinette meets Tim Burton style.  Cheesy  I made so, so many mistakes while making her -- err, I mean I learned so much of what not to do on the next one.  Cheesy  She even has her own little drink me vial.

Challenge: Broomstick
Project Name: Nimbus clay charm

More polymer clay!~ This tiny little Nimbus broomstick is roughly the same length as a sewing pin.


And finally,
Challenge: DADA; Defeat a Boggart.  Craft something inspired by one of your greatest fears
Project Name: Clay Dark Mark

I must admit my greatest fear is losing a loved one and I cannot imagine the horror of seeing a dark mark hovering over my home. I probably took this challenge too literally,  Wink but I'm happy with how it turned out. Polymer clay & gold paint.

2  Alice in Wonderland inspired poseable doll. in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by SootBerry on: August 12, 2012 11:21:15 PM

I mostly make charms from polymer clay, but I decided to try my hand at making a poseable art doll. It was quite the learning curve and not everything went to plan but I'm mostly happy with how she turned out though I wish the paint job on her face turned out better; I am kind of new to painting and I didn't realize colours would dry so much darker than how they appear wet.  Undecided  I also need to hunt down some tiny brushes - tiny details are hard with big brushes, lol~!

She is a little over 6 inches tall, not including her hair. She can move her arms and legs and sit or stand on her own. I also made her a little 'drink me' vial and she apparently stole The Mad Hatter's hat. Wink   She is sort of a cross in style of Marie Antoinette and Tim Burton.  Wink Cheesy

Thanks for looking!~
