If Two Heads Are Better Than One…

8 Comments

Then 10 must be loads of fun!

After quite some time, after waiting for inspiration to strike, after waiting for an idea to come, I started sculpting heads last week.  I’ve decided to work on a series.  In this case all the doll heads were created using the same technique, yet each one has a distinct look or formation of a personality. 

These are the heads after sculpting but before going into the oven.

They’re all jostling for attention here.

An overhead view brings everyone into focus.

Nervously awaiting placement in the oven.

Here we are, out of the oven, lightly sanded, antiqued, and buffed.

I’m putting together their bodies this week and will post results when they’re ready.

  1. I can’t wait to see the bodies, I can’t wait because I can’t imagine what they will be. But I know they will be fun.

  2. Hello group! Amy, they’re marvelous and each one already has a distinct personality. I’m looking forward to seeing the next step!

  7. Hi Amy,
    Wonderful looking heads!
    Are they solid clay or do you use something on the inside of the head with clay placed over it?

  8. Hi Cat,

    These heads are solid polymer clay. I use aluminum foil for an inner core on larger heads and soon I’ll be learning how to work with air dry clay over Styrofoam for sculpting.

    Thanks for the compliments.

    -Amy
