The guide is over 100 pages long with hundreds of full color photos and descriptions to walk you through every part of making the doll. You can print out select pages or the entire document--it is up to you!

There are so many possibilities with this doll style! You can adapt the pillow form figures to make ornaments, tree toppers, custom gifts, primitive or folk style figures, fashion dolls, abstract figures and more.

Through the 5 lessons, I will show you:
1. How to construct a sturdy armature with simple materials.

2. How to sculpt an upper body, mold and alter a face using polymer clay. How to adjust the molded face to blend it in with the surrounding head and make it yours. How to paint and finish the face.

3. How to sculpt hands and arms with polymer clay. Also learn unique jointing methods to allow your doll's arms to swing freely--this movement makes shipping dolls much easier!

4. How to construct a fabric collage-style skirt base-unlimited possibilities to explore your creativity! Includes skirt pattern.

5. How to finish the doll with costuming, wigging and details. I will show a few different methods for adding hair to your doll.
