i love art dolls and have for awhile
i wanted to try my hand at making a small one

she is made out of Polymer Clay, jump rings and embroidery floss for the hair
i painted her face with acrylic paints(which i seem to have misplaced the picture of...)
as of yet she remains undressed as i cant figure out how i want to dress her
any ideas would be awesome! thank you

love to take part in personal swaps, I would love a poppet of my very own, or a doll like the ones made by Poppets & Lace

She is beautiful even before you painted her. With her jointed limbs she is able to pose so gracefully.
As to ideas on clothing - I don't know why but she made me think of Leonard Cohen's Suzanne so maybe Rags and Feathers.

Pretty cool little doll; jump rings are a neat way to approach the articulation.

As far as clothing goes, I'd recommend a dress, skirt, or something similar, that allows the limbs to retain their full range of motion.  And, color-wise, I'd probably go with darker hues to contrast with her light skin and hair.

I don't know why but I think she looks like Alice as "Alice in Wonderland" maybe it's her blonde hair. She is beautiful just the way she is also!

Wow she is already so pretty! I love the idea of using jumprings! Would it be possible to make a tutorial for her? I don't generally make clay projects, but she looks fun to make, so I'd give it a try.  Smiley
Is she finished now?

So cute! Using jump rings is a brilliant way to get the joints working… I love the poses you put her in! She's just all-round lovely and deserving of a beautiful outfit. Something gauzy and fairy-like, perhaps?
