Sculpture, part two – Hands and feet. Mimics


This is the second volume from the full course Private Lessons by Elena Kunin. To make it easier for you to navigate among the large amount of information, I have divided this volume into 5 parts. The first part is devoted to facial expressions, while the second part discusses the basic differences between male and female heads. In the third and fourth part I will talk about general principles and the steps to take when sculpting arms and legs. Together with me you will sculpt the hands of a young woman, an old woman and a troll – realistic, character and grotesque dolls respectively, and both young and old.
You will learn to sculpt bare feet and shoes from polymer clay, imitating different textures.
In addition, you will learn:

  • How to sculpt hands that are holding any kind of object.
  • How to sculpt a hand in a glove.
  • How to sculpt hands that are holding a particular object
  • How to make fingernails in different ways.
  • How to bake hands of a complex shape.
  • How to make legs for a doll sitting or standing in various positions.
  • How to sculpt shoes with a high heel and with a wedge heel.
  • How to sculpt the feet for shoes we will make later from a different material (leather, fabric, etc.)The last part comprises technical advice and a list of most common mistakes that beginning doll-makers make.
    The volume includes 4 videos and 344 photographs.This ebook is in pdf format and you will be able to open it on any device with Adobe Acrobat Reader

    I just finished reading those amazing doll making tutorials!
    And Elena, I must say I’m stunned they are so easy to understand, those step by step photos are making the process of making an art doll simple and clear.
    And I loved the addition videos, especially this one:
    Thank you and I am looking forward for the next tutorials to finish my first art doll

    I loved both books and will refer to them often. I am a 2D artist working in several media – mostly oil and pastel and my work is figurative. I have admired MS. Kunin’s work for so long and was thrilled when I found her books – the instructions are clear, many step by step with wonderful illustrations – you will enjoy the coffee breaks written into the lessons and the meaningful dialogue and philosophical chat. I can’t recommend these highly enough
