Creating new dolls every year for golu/doll display is totally a joyful experience. And today I am going to share one such doll made out of polymer clay for this year display (Sankranthi – Jan 2016)
The structure of the doll is inspired from Channapatna wood toys.
The pieces are molded individually with Sculpey white polymer clay and added them using toothpicks. Then, baked for almost an hour as per package instructions.
And this is how it looked, don’t worry on overcooking/burning the piece because it going to get nice coat of paint and details.
Once you have the structure ready, pick some acrylic paints and color it the way you want! Since it is for a traditional display I picked bright colors and painted the dolls to look more Indian. 🙂
Just to make sure it stands firmly, glued it on to a painted plywood base from Hobby Lobby.
