I need to figure out how to weight down a art doll.  I'm going to make a few in all different sizes and i have no idea what to use to weigh them down.

There are some tiny plastic pellets sold at Hobby Lobby that do a pretty good job..I use lentils in my pincushions for weight...so there are 2 possibilities Cheesy

Sometime I used the silver colorded BB's for a BB Gun.They are nice and extra heavy.

Joann's sells craft bead stuffing. I just bought a bag of it. I think it was $4 for the bag. I only use it in the bottoms of my dolls and it works really well.

RockStarMom, did you find the craft bead stuffing with the other stuffings?  I looked at my JoAnn's the other day and couldn't find anything like that.

It was with the other stuffing, but you can order it through Joanns.com also.

I sometimes use a washed and covered pebble inside a toy to weight it down  Smiley
