The Joys of Paperclay

I'm in love with paperclay, specifically Creative Paperclay brand - though I haven't tried other brands. Easy to work with, air-dry (or not), easy to sand, and lightweight.

This morning I built up the features on my Izannah Walker doll a little more. I've still got some shaping and sanding to do, which will have to wait.

This morning I've been assembling a large photo montage for my mom and dad's 50th wedding anniversary, which we will be celebrating tomorrow. I need to add a few graphics to the display, but it'll have to wait until after my morning nap. Don't know why I had insomnia last night, but I was up at 4:30. That's just craziness.

This Izannah-inspired doll is being created in Dixie Redmond's Izannah Workshop. Visit the blog for the details HERE.

Your doll is coming along so beautifully. I said this in the workshop, but I love when I can see Izzy and also can see the hand of the maker. :-) Beautiful job.

Hi Deanna!
You know that I do love your work! What is fascinating about this piece is that it looks soooo different so far from what you've done. Waiting for the face!

I already love the expression this little gal has, and I can't wait to see her all done! Your dolls are so lovely.

I love paperclay too! This time of year I put it in from of my heater, or on top of the heat vents, and it drys quickly. I use styro for the base, looks like you are using cloth?
