Fleshing the Doll and Striking a Pose

9, 10, 11, 12, 13,

See how easy it is to capture motion with your doll when you're using the foil twisties for the armature? When you add muscle with leaf shapes and smooth them into place, then you bend the legs and arms, the warmed clay will ripple the clay in natural muscle shapes. It's like instant sculpting. 

If you want to add a doll in motion to a mini scene figure out where it is going to be anchored. If an elbow touches a leaf of a bush, one toe on the ground, one hand holding a leash to a running dog you have the tripod of balance. Run your wires into the foil twisties, once you decide on the pose you want.
