I'm working on my wee person right now! I'm not sure how well she's going to come out, but I'm excited. I took a small wooden bead and wrapped it in polymer clay. I then smooshed it in one of these molds: http://gobstock.com/_715891133408-Sculpey-Flexible-Push-Mold-Art-Doll-Face I'm cooking it right now. Next I'll throw some water colors on it and see if it works.

Here's my little face painted. I think she looks kind of cute. It was too hot in my place to make more than one, but I'm going to make another tomorrow.

It's a fine line between 'hobby' & 'mental illness

Great little person, Morgan! The face looks really good!

I recently acquired some small wooden beads myself and may have to make a little guy, too. What do you plan on making the body out of?

My philosophy is "measure once....cut three times.... swear like a sailor...."

I can't find a house for love nor money!  I've been to three Michael's (and discovered several that have vanished from my city...) and will try a fourth when I go to Cincinnati this weekend.  But I'm itching to get started, and if I can't find a standard kit...

I'm also thinking of making my own, and I'm thinking along slightly different lines.  Not a house, but my fantasy urban loft (complete with rooftop terrace garden, natch.)  Big open space with ginormous windows, little nooks, perhaps a spiral staircase.....

Whaddya think?

Thanks Ashgrim!

I think I need to go one size down on the beads. She's looking a little bloated and head heavy. But I've kind of fallen in love with her, so I'm going to keep her and give her a home somewhere.

I made the body based on Wee Folk tutorials. I took a piece of pipe cleaner and wrapped it in embroidery floss. I then popped the head on top. I'll make a dress or something for her later.

Here's some extra pictures:
Working in her office!


Here's a picture of her body:
