I wanted to play around with some plastic eyes I bought so I broke out the doll fimo.

I have no idea what to do with her, especially as she is currently Just A Face!!!!! Which is a tiny bit scary! I was thinking of making her into an Alice in Wonderland Doll but I just think it will take forever to do all those limbs and torso and stuff!

I think she looks great- I would give her some makeup though. If you don't want to sculpt her body you could always sew it and glue the head on. I've seen dolls like that before. I love the idea of an alice doll

I would absolutely love to have a personal swap! I'm interested in jewelry, soap, and anything that inspires you on my Pinterest

I think she is fabulous so far!  I would love to see either a sewn body or a sculpted body.  An Alice in Wonderland doll would be wonderful!  She could use a light blush on her cheeks, some feathered eyebrows, and wispy eyelashes.  Just a suggestion Smiley

Thank you, yeah I agree she needs some more make up.

She reminds me of Kira from the Dark Crystal. Really lovely work.

I think she's exquisite. Smiley There's no reason to rush a masterpiece - enjoy the process!

You don't have to sculpt the entire body from clay. You could make it from fabric and then cover it with gesso and paint it to give it the look of clay. There are a lot of doll artists who make doll masks, and a fix them to a doll head of cloth. there are so many options to explore. Have fun with it.

Looks great! Hope you post a pic when you decide what to do with her.

she's great! what size is that? No need to do an entire sculpted body. Just make a wire armature to attach the head to then sculpt the hand and feet. you can do as much or little as you like (meaning you can do up to the elbow or stop at the wrist!) then give her a stuffed body and dress her Smiley

i think the make up is fine, just maybe darker her eyebrows and give her some upper eyelashes

oh another thought - is this a HEAD or just FACE?

my first suggestion assumed a HEAD. If it's just a face make some holes on the sides and sew it to a soft body doll or just glue it on!
