For what I'm doing and the way I do it, it really does make more sense for me to paint them afterward.

Oh, I totally agree that you should do what you feel most comfortable with!...  it's just that I've heard those exact same reasons from so many people who go on to change their minds after beginning to play (many of whom make figures, custom figures, and even cake toppers  Grin) that I sorta' couldn't help reacting.  Didn't mean anything by it though!  That's one thing that's so great about polymer clay... there are just so many ways to do things, as well as just so many different things one can pursue.

I don't know if it's my oven or what, but sometimes the clay burns....

(if you do decide to do colored clay for anything later and want to know what makes it darken and how to prevent it, check out this page:
...click on Darkening, Scorching & Burning...)

If I need to blend the clay to, say, attach a hand to a sleeve, I don't have to worry about having a purple shared area,

Hmmm.... mostly hands are pressed into dimples in the end of sleeves for simpler sculpts or added to bare arms, or clothing is added over a bare or mostly- bare figure, but haven't heard of that being too much of a problem (I'm not a real sculptor though). (Blending same color to same color, whether they're both still raw or whether raw clay is being added to baked, shouldn't create a color change though.)

Keep having fun with it!

The guy is 12.5" Tall.  The girl is just a bit shorter than him.  I'd measure them, but they're all packed up and ready to go!

I'll ask when the recipients actually get the dolls.  As of right now, the guy who bought them for the couple still needs to confirm his shipping address before they ship out.  :/
