A New Doll In The Works

It has been a little crazy here on the home front and I have not been able to do some of the things I am itching to get to. It has also been just so cold this winter. They said this morning that the water temp is in the 50's, so even though the sun comes out it is still cool and damp from the wind and water. Winters at the beach can sometimes be just down right chilling! Enough of the weather report and back to what I managed to do last week.

I love the way this one turned out!
I am going to do a few more of these, but it is time to move onto some new things!

Another Paper Clay doll in the works. I am exploring the use of pencils on the face and I do like the softness. Like a drawing. My sculptures never turn out the way I want them to, but I just have to keep working at it.
I love working with Paper Clay, but it is challenging, but maybe that is why I like it. I am learning that even though you have sculpted the face, when it is hardened, if you do not like the results by just taking a few tools you can carve into it and if that does not work take the face off and start all over.


  1. To say that your new creation is exquisite is an understatement!!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo

  2. You are sooooo gifted. Really gorgeous.

  3. the face is great, I love paper clay too, but I have never used anything else, just working with clay is hard for a thread and needle girl
    I'll have to try pencils it looks so pretty
    thanks for sharing
    your fairy friend

  4. How beautiful she turned out! I love the detailing on the bottom of her dress. Your face of your paper clay doll is lovely - can't wait to see the rest of her. :) Theresa

  5. Love your paper clay girl. I like working with paper clay, but don't really love it. It is forgiving and certainly receptive to a "do over". Remember the Gold Dragon that I did? That took such a long time to dry, that I have stayed away from that type of clay since then. I do love the texture, though. Anxious to see how your doll shapes up. Take care and enjoy the week.

  6. I always fall in love again with your paper dolls and the paper clay doll is very beautiful also!

  7. Wow, how gorgeous! I fall in love all over again each time I see another doll of yours.

  8. When you say paper clay do you mean paper mache? A friend of mine has started using this medium.

  9. WOW!!!! She is going to be so awesome..gorgoeus.

  10. Kim, I like how you created the extra "ruffles" around the bottom of the skirt, added the feathers to her bustle and did the hat on this paper doll. She is striking!

    I've never tried pencils on any paperclay pieces I've done (although haven't done any in several years). I love the look! I think I prefer it to paint.


  11. my goodness your dolls are STUNNING! i am so completely taken with your dolls that i keep coming back in hopes of seeing more! hehe Thank you for sharing your AWESOME creations! Have a GREAT day! :)

  12. Eek, I think I've been following your other blog and just dropped by at it to check you were ok as you hadn't posted for a while. Persevered though, and delighted to find you on here so will adjust my 'follower' settings accordingly.
    Wow, I sooooo love all the gorgeously beautiful creations that you have been making since OWOH - awe-inspiring!!!
    Big hugs
    Jo xx
    P.S. do stop by my blog as I'm having a 'Week of Worthiness' give-away consisting of one of my pretty orchid pendants. :0)

  13. Lovely Dolly! :)
    Blessings and love,

  14. I haven't been around in so long, I've missed a great deal of beautiful art. Love your newest doll creation already. She's going to be gorgeous.
    And your paperback dolls! WOW! They're fantastic.
