There is something so exciting about creating an art doll and watching it come to life!
10 years ago I made a little doll out of cloth and clay and fell in love with the process. Since then I have made many, many more and have taught hundreds of people how to make them as well.
The original process remains basically the same, but through trial and error I have refined my technique over the years. This demonstration came naturally and It's been a joy to record the process once more.
I would consider this tutorial a beginner - intermediate level project. You will need to know how to use a sewing machine and/or be able to sew basic stitches with a needle and thread. Other than that, I baby-step you through the entire process to ensure success.
The demonstration moves slowly enough that you can work right along-side of me pausing the video when needed.
Video demonstration runs about 3 hours long
(broken into easy-to-view segments) and includes how to:
- Sketch a pattern (I also give you a printable pattern to use)
- Sew, stuff, and assemble the figure
- Sculp the face
- Paint the doll
- Sew a skirt
- And finally, how to give your doll a nice antiqued look! (optional)
You will also receive:
- Work in progress photos to review and
- A supplies list with online shopping links
