You basically transform paper (usually cheap toilet paper or newspaper) in pulp by tearing it and soaking in water, and then mix the pulp with glue and other ingredients to make it workable. It's a kinda messy process XD
There are a lot of different recipes, so I think it's a matter of choosing the one you like the best ^^
This one at Instructables, for example, is pretty much the basic one:
There are two different versions here (one is smoother and the other is stronger)

The powdered clay is made of the paper pulp + additives, you mix with water to use Smiley

Ohh, I see! Haven't thought of that XD
Thanks for the explanation! <3

I googled the brand of paperclay and it seems cool! I think there isn't an equivalent to it around here, just the powder... still, even the powder must be much smoother than homemade clay, you made me want to try it Cheesy

Yes. The doll's head, and the wolf's head are both sculpted from paper clay. Then the doll's head is covered in a finely knit fabric and the seams are hidden with more paper clay. Then it's gessoed over and painted with acrylics. The wolf's head is covered with fake fur, and trimmed in certain places and the colored with chalk pastels using a stiff paint brush.

First off, your dolls are amazing!!! And I loved seeing the making of the head *_*
I'm curious about why the head is gessoed after it's covered in fabric... I thought, at first, the fabric covering's purpose was to even the head's texture to the body's.

Also, do you make your paperclay or you buy paperclay powder? The head look so smooth in the "dried and sanded" stage!
