4. Clay Parts
Your doll can have lots of clay parts, or no clay parts at all! Doesn’t even have to be clay either, you can use any sculpting material as long as it is sturdy enough, such as Apoxie sculpt, thermoplastic, and resin cast parts.
After I’ve made my eyes and they’ve fully dried, I can then sculpt the face of my doll. I usually start with a core of aluminum on a tiny armature, aka my baking stand. This allows more room for it to fit in an oven, and the stand gives me a safe place to hold without accidentally squishing the clay.
