I don't know how many of you have walmarts near you but all the fun eyelashes are supposed to be discounted 50% off. I just bought 10 pair! Smiley
Do make sure you know how much they cost though I bought some a few weeks before halloween and I don't think I got the 50% discount on some I bought today. I'm trying to find my receipt but it may be a lost cause! lol

Bah... I couldn't find any of the halloween eyelashes... boo! Oh well, I snatched a couple of pairs while they were in stock, so I'm set for another poppet or two.

Poppets 3 & 4 are mid construction and intended for my 9 and 10 year old sisters for Christmas. Neither are perfect, even this early in the construction, but good enough.

Out of curiosity, has anyone tried using the bendy clay for shoe-making? I've seen sculpty soles, but I'm trying for more of a rubber All-Stars sole and toe effect. Anyone have any experience with this particular medium or project?

I can sew up the body and have it stuffed and jointed in about 4 hours. Then the clothes.

my first poppet lucy took me about 8 hours completely assembled  Grin
my second is actually coming along much slower!!!!  Embarrassed

lucy was a 'must-have-it-now' poppet, where as number 2 is a 'when-i-have-time-ill-pick-you-up-and-do-a-little-bit' poppet

I don't remember reading about anyone using it. But it seems like it should work. If you're careful you could bake it on the cloth. Toaster oven element might be too close to the fabric.
I've seen similar shoes for AG dolls that were made using white vinyl w/ the tricot backing for that look.

I think craftewoman used clay for shoe related things once. for the toe of the shoe though I'd use fun foam or plastic from a food container. You could still sew through either and they'd both be nice and shiny like the rubber toe.

I have learned I have to go slowly or I mess things up. So It takes me a few hours each day for about 3-4 days. I have pushed and made 3 poppets in a week and a half before. For me what takes longest is the stuffing. I can joint, and sew pretty quickly.
I found if I grab my bag of stuffing, poppet parts and a chopstick and watch a movie as I stuff it goes faster. lol

I've used Sculpey clay only for the sole of the shoe. I craft the entire shoe and then glue the sole to it after baking it.

I've been reading some of the poly-clay posts and according to DianeB. Sculpey is more brittle when thin than the other brands. But I don't have any practical experience w/ it. I've only worked with Fimo and that was many years ago. I like the ease of cutting fun foam. The shoes I was referring to are at Michaels in the doll and teddy section. I think sewing and/or gluing  is easier. If you think clay is easier give it a try and let us know what happens. Whatever you do please share your results with us. The good and not so good.
