My dad bought these molds for these figures about 11 years ago when i was 7. and when we moved a month later we lost them in all the boxes of craft stuff we have. so i was raiding our garage a few weeks ago and i found them YEY!. So i just used the molds with white polymer clay, and then painted them and added feathers and stones and this is what i ended up with. kinda weird but i like them.

on the wall with some of the wooden figures my dad has collected. he has a few hundred lol

So neat! They remind me of both southwest native art and early pre-columbian Andean art. Very cool!

Oooo, cool kachina dolls!!  Never heard of molds for them, but what a great idea... so glad you found them!  How large are they btw?

I love mixing media with the feathers too.  Maybe there are other things you could use as well, like metal brads, strips of leather, polymer clay or other eyes, etc.... or maybe you could make your own head to fit onto a molded body, etc.?

P.S.  If your dad is into ethnic masks like this, he might enjoy looking at some of the ones made from polymer clay.  And/or you could make him a mini mask to wear (if he's into that, perhaps on a leather cording, with neutral colors or just faux wood make from polymer clay, etc.) as a gift, or maybe to attach to thetop of a box or the front of an upright pencil holder or metal mail file, etc.... they're incredibly fun to make!
Here are a few mini ones:

And there are a load more, large and small, on this page at my site:
