From the cover: “A delight in miniature dolls is shared by many people, and the added satisfaction of creating your own unique little people can now be enjoyed by many more.
Until the advent of polymer clay, making realistic miniature dolls at home was all but impossible. Polymer clay, however, offers the perfect medium. Versatile, readily available and easy to work, it needs no specialist equipment and can be modelled or sculpted, carved, sanded, painted and glued to give a fme-textured and durable result.
Not everyone has the confidence to try out a new craft without guidance, but polymer-clay expert, Sue Heaser, makes the ideal tutor. Coupled with her own tremendous creativity, she has a remarkable ability to communicate her skills so that each stage of the process becomes straightforward. Every step is fully illustrated from modelling the body and sculpting the face to assembling and painting the dolls and making their clothes.
Making Miniature Dolls with Polymer Clay gives you comprehensive instructions on making a whole family of charming dolls. Subsequent chapters show you how to create authentic costumes from the Tudor, Regency, Victorian and Edwardian periods — not just for adults but for grandparents, children and even babies. Anyone interested in dolls, doll’s houses or in polymer-clay modelling will be delighted with this unique and exciting book.”
