Thanks so much. I'm blown away by all of the compliments and encouragement. I have been playing around with polymer clay for years but have never made anything that I didn't wad back up into a ball and give up on. My daughter has a miniature country store and asked if I would help her make items for it. I searched youtube for tutorials and while doing so ran across tutorials for making dolls. I thought about how funny it would be to make dolls or actions figures for my co-workers for Christmas and the search began. My original heads were created to fit on Ken doll bodies but I didn't like the after effect when I painted them... wasnt a smooth look.... and I struggled getting skin tones to match the doll body. So then I started over and went with clay mixtures for hair and most other colors.
It probably took me a couple of months to play around with the clay and get the hang of it then I was able to work quicker.
Thanks, too for the idea about selling them. That makes me a bit nervous but it is something that I might give serious thought to...
This is photo of the first one that was intended for a Ken doll body.
