I’m happy to be a part of the upcoming Polymer Clay Adventure and you can be too! I’m one of many instructors preparing great new polymer clay projects with video and printable tutorials.

A New ‘Do

My polymer clay ball joint doll, Aurora Rose, has a new hair do. I am very happy to have replaced her mohair wig with one I made from Tibetan lambswool. The scale of the fiber is much more suitable to dolls, and it is available in a variety of colors.

It took most of a […]

Patsy Cline said it so well…some days things just are NOT all together. That’s how it is right now for the purple faerie ball joint doll that I am making. First the cat stole one of her lower arms—luckily I have made a paper under-body pattern that I am testing and it was no problem […]

I just finished making my first ball jointed doll, and its been a fun filled learning curve. I’ve made many dolls, but she’s the most complex. Kato Polyclay is extremely tough and durable, and after sanding has a beautiful skin-like texture. I used a 12.5 oz. block of beige/flesh and had around 3 oz. […]

Sometimes part of getting on with new business in the new year includes those little bits of business from before. Like preparing and filing taxes, FAFSA forms and other paperwork, updating my resume and all that other stuff needed for going forward, so I’ve been diligent.

I’m even getting pages from my old website re-formatted […]
