Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat what are they feeding you?
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat, it's not your fault.
They won't take you to the vet,
You're probably not their favorite pet.
You may not be a bed of roses
And you're no friend to those with noses

what is Milliput?  Roll Eyes

it's a kind of putty modelling clay. It comes in two parts that you knead together, that sets off a chemical reaction and over a few hours it hardens until it's pretty solid. It's an epoxy putty (like araldite is an epoxy resin glue it works in a similar way).  When it's hard you can sand, drill, carve it, even turn it on a lathe. I modelled the features while it was still soft, but then defined them with a wet paintbrush when it was sort of at the leathery stage. This is the first time I've worked with it (and the first doll I've made for 3 years or so) but I like it. It's more difficult to work with than polymer clay, but it stays where you put it more, doesn't need to be baked and is much sturdier. I started carving fingers with a scalpel but haven't had a chance to finish it. Milliput comes in a few kinds, I used the superfine white stuff. I have no idea if it's readily available outside the uk but the company that makes it has a website that includes a gallery of the ways in which artists have used it.

Ok advert over.

Bubbagirl - my flatmate said that too, once she'd stopped telling me how narcissitic and weird I am.

Thanks for all the compliments guys.

oh and if you're interested she's about 5 inches tall.

This doll is great -- very nicely done! I can really see the resemblance!

And... did you use *toothpicks* to do the knitting?!

I live on the west coast. She lives on the east coast. We discuss crafts in between. Right here: Trans-craft-inental.

the needles are halved toothpicks with beads on although I  used 2mm needles to actually do the knitting (the toothpicks were too splintry).
