Recently I made a post about Poseable Art Dolls. I have been interested in trying to make my own doll.
I am sculpting the doll using Super Sculpey. I could have used color polymer clay, but I found Super Sculpey easier to use than FIMO at this time. I do plan to paint the sculpted parts so it isn't flesh tone. This works out just fine since I didn't know what kind of doll I was sculpting much less what type/color fabric I wanted to get. That also means I haven't made the wire armature yet since I wasn't sure on size either. I figure I do the head first and the rest will be determined later.
At first I didn't know what to sculpt so I made a basic skull and went from there. I added clay and baked several times before I decided it was going to be a young dragon.
Above you can see the tools I used a lot for this project. These rubber tipped tools helped sculpt the clay better than some of my metal sculpting tools.
I did end up breaking the right eye off while attempting to add wire armature for the horns. I used FIMO Liquid Deco Gel to make the repair .
The dragon is looking better each time. I still need to figure out what kind of ears it will have if any. Once the head is done, I will make the wire armature and then start working on sculpting the feet.
