i love art dolls and have for awhile
i wanted to try my hand at making a small one

she is made out of Polymer Clay, jump rings and embroidery floss for the hair
i painted her face with acrylic paints(which i seem to have misplaced the picture of...)
as of yet she remains undressed as i cant figure out how i want to dress her
any ideas would be awesome! thank you

She is beautiful even before you painted her. With her jointed limbs she is able to pose so gracefully.
As to ideas on clothing - I don't know why but she made me think of Leonard Cohen's Suzanne so maybe Rags and Feathers.

Pretty cool little doll; jump rings are a neat way to approach the articulation.

As far as clothing goes, I'd recommend a dress, skirt, or something similar, that allows the limbs to retain their full range of motion.  And, color-wise, I'd probably go with darker hues to contrast with her light skin and hair.

I don't know why but I think she looks like Alice as "Alice in Wonderland" maybe it's her blonde hair. She is beautiful just the way she is also!

Will do personal swaps!! I make Art Dolls/Junker Jane Dolls/Raggedy Ann & Andy Dolls/also TM Patches

Wow she is already so pretty! I love the idea of using jumprings! Would it be possible to make a tutorial for her? I don't generally make clay projects, but she looks fun to make, so I'd give it a try.  Smiley
Is she finished now?

So cute! Using jump rings is a brilliant way to get the joints working… I love the poses you put her in! She's just all-round lovely and deserving of a beautiful outfit. Something gauzy and fairy-like, perhaps?

She's super lovely.  I really like the natural bend in her arms and her little belly button Smiley
