Mini dolls

 Usually I make my mini dolls from polymer clay, wire and wool. This time I tried to make two dolls completely out of polymer clay. The arms and legs connected with very thin wire.
They are about 4 cm high, I can use all my fabric scraps to dress them.
 Different methods of making a mini-doll.
The two largest ladies in the middle of this groupportrait are the ones completely made of polymer clay, which turned out to be rather fragile.
Next time I will try porcelain clay!

Cut & paste

To send this little Bergere hat on its stand safely all the way to Spain. I had to fit it tightly in the box. Also I wanted it to look a littlebit nicer than just plain a lot of cutting and pasting was done: the oldfashioned way!
