1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Re: Best polymer clay to use in making dolls? on: August 21, 2012 06:11:09 AM
I'm guessing you're wanting to create something similar in style to this.

I'd say your best bet is probably Super Sculpey. Its flesh toned, holds detail well, and it is strong. I've dropped pieces from four feet onto concrete and not a crack or scratch. But even just any polymer clay would suit. Super Sculpey only comes in 1lb box as its smallest size, where as with Sculpey III, Sculpey Primo and Fimo clays come in smaller quantities and often go on sale at local craft stores.

The problem I've found with Sculpey light is it's much more elastic and so its much harder to get details to stay sharp. It is very light though so if you're worried about weight on your doll it would be a good choice. I don't have any experience with Sculpey bake and bend so I can't make any comment on its usability.

Here's a page where they go over the basic differences between the different types of polymer clay: http://www.polymertutorials.com/polymer-clay-types-tutorial.html

Beautiful! Did you mix the color in with the clay or just paint it after you had baked it.

Falkor looks amazing! I'm also really impressed by the detail on the snake pendant, it looks perfect.

I'm in the process of making a complete set of the playable characters of Borderlands plus Tannis and Steve. So far only Lilith and Roland are complete with Mordecai in progress.



I'm not too happy with the picture of Lilith, the colors are off. She's not quite so bright in real life.
