Molly and Abigail


I took an online class recently because I wanted to be inspired to make art dolls again. Nancye's Art Dolls are just adorable and I needed to try them.
I first purchased her book and downloaded it before the class begun and try one as per the instructions. Molly was born out of PaperClay air dry clay.
I was pleased with the results but made a few mistakes along the way. For me the most fun is outfitting the little characters. With a background in children's clothing design, this felt like old home week.

Then the class began and I got to see Nancye work, taking the mystery out of some of the kinks I ran into. Also, I knew I wanted to try Polymer clay again and that is what Nancye uses on her dolls. Because of my RA and limited mobility in my hands I was concerned with the polymer but using the pasta machine it turned out to be ok for me.
Drum roll, please....and here is Abigail.
