The New Beginnings!

Here it is! My favorite moment! it is almost magical: the birth of the new doll! Going from conception to reality.  After I finish with the rough sketches and the initial research, I'd like to start with a face. The face defines everything else; character, mood, posture.

Polymer clay is my favorite material for sculpting, For this little guy I used "Sculpey". This face is already backed. The head is empty inside, yet, still somewhat heavy.

This is another of my favorite personages from the "Commedia Dell'Arte" In my opinion, the most adorable one. I wanted to make him for ages, and finally got to it! Can you guess who he is?
