(Note: This is an electronic pdf eBook. There are no refunds on electronic files. Watermark on pictures will not appear on your downloadable purchase file)

Here I describe in detail the process of making the doll’s body: how to find the right proportions, how different the proportions of a realistic, character-based, grotesque, and stylized doll are, what are the ways of creating the body volume. In addition you will learn:

how to make wire armature for a doll
how to connect sculpted elements to the cloth body
what materials and what glue to use for the body
how to put the body into the desired pose
how to make elbows and knees
how to make the figure balanced so it can stand on its own without support
The second section of this volume is devoted to wigs and different materials for them: hair, fur, paper-mâché, wool, thread, and more. I give a detailed description, using many illustrations, of:

ways of dying wool, fur, and hair
ways of attaching hair to polymer clay, before and after baking
ways of making a doll’s hairdo and fixing hair
particular chapter is devoted to finding and correcting mistakes in your work.

About The Artist

Elena Kunin is a Master of art history and theory (Moscow State University), an artist (a member of the Russian Artists Union), a lecturer. She has worked in Moscow museums, specializing in applied art and the history of costume. Elena has been also engaged in classical painting and icon restoration.

Elena made her first dolls in 1987 and has developed on her own many techniques for working with polymer clay. The range of her work is very wide: from metaphorical creations to illustrations and portraits. Essentially what unites them all is the material from which they are made, Living Doll polymer clay. In recent years Elena has used Genesis heat set paint, which makes the painting more exquisite and at the same time more durable.

Over the years she has taken part in many exhibitions in Europe, the United States, and Russia, and she has also held several personal exhibitions. Elena’s work can be found in museums and the finest private collections around the world, and they have often been recognized with prestigious professional awards. A large number of collectors value original and sophisticated artistic solutions in Elena’s work, its richness and its great technical quality.

In addition, for nearly 20 years now Elena has taught the art of dollmaking in various countries. She has led both academic courses (170 hours) and short courses (30 hours), as well as a variety of master classes. In 2006 Elena released the how-to book Character Dolls from Polymer Clay, which has become very popular among Russian-speaking dollmakers and artists.
