340 photos and 4 videos demonstrate all the stages of sculpting. In this part, I explain how to sculpt three different heads – a classical girl, an old character woman, and a sad troll – in three different ways. The heads themselves are roughly the same in terms of complexity, but the sculpting principles are different. The first head is sculptured using a classical technique, which is the most complicated. To sculpt the two other heads, I recommend techniques that will make your work much easier. All videos were shot in one take, without editing, so there are no jarring transitions from barely-sketched details to complete dolls. You will see how it’s all done in real life. Since proportions cause the greatest difficulties for beginning doll-makers (especially those who have no formal art education), I have developed a special modular system. Using this system makes working on proportions easy and clear. In addition, you will learn:

  • How to choose the most suitable material and the optimal size for your doll
  • What polymer clay is the best and how to work with it
  • How to clean the sculpture surface
  • How to make the surface of the sculpture smooth
  • How to properly bake polymer clay
  • How to bake it repeatedly
  • How to change the structure of polymer clay using different ways of baking
  • How to fix baking defects (cracks, plaques), although Living Doll almost never cracks or develops plaques if properly baked
  • How to use proportions to make a doll realistic, conventional, character-based, or grotesque
  • A particular chapter is devoted to finding and correcting mistakes in your work.
