 It's been awhile since I've added a tutorial, so I thought I'd post some photos of my cloth-over-clay technique:

Super Sculpey:

Pressmold dusted with cornstarch first for easier clay removal (or can spritz the mold with water)

Removed from mold

Face refined

Tacky glue

Apply knit fabric, pouncing into face with stiff, dry paintbrush

Don't stretch fabric, start at the center of the face and work outward

Use tool or fingernail to press cloth into face details to further define

Wrap fabric around to back, trim when glue has dried

Paint with gesso, buff with piece of brown paper grocery bag

Paint with skin tone acrylic paint

Stitch to head
