Thanks to all! ...More new dolls coming!

I just want to put out a public "Thank You" to all those who have purchased my newest tutorial "Sculpting an OOAK BJD using Polymer Clay". I have included a special little gift to all those who have ordered as I appreciate your business so much! You have really made this tutorial a success beyond my original expectations. Since last friday there have been 33 ordered! WOW! I almost have enough now to purchase a kiln for my studio...almost! Which means that soon there will be some new PORCELAIN BJDS!!!

I am extremely excited by this prospect! I can not wait to see what comes of this new venture! Another batch of tutorials are being shipped out to customers (first batch went out friday)...bear with me folks...I am also filling supply orders from both my store sites and will offer some "kits" being listed this week for those of you working on BJDS from my tutorial. These will be available in my Etsy store. I think it will make getting going easier for you!

I would really like to hear from those artists who use the tutorial to make a bjd. I would like to hear your thoughts (perhaps on revisions or changes) and see your work as I will soon be sending out some advertising and would like to get feedback as well as photos of your work. Perhaps I will use one of YOUR dolls in a future ad!

Again, Thank you all, so so much! Hugs--Kori

Just listed on Ebay!

My Newest tutorial "Sculpting an OOAK BJD using POLYMER CLAY" was just listed tonight on Ebay. I am very happy with the results of this tutorial. Here is a brief description:

This tutorial will show the experienced to advanced doll artist how to make an original one-of-a-kind BJD out of polymer clay!

Some sculpting and prior knowledge of working with polymer clay is required. THIS IS NOT A "LEARN TO SCULPT" TUTORIAL. While this tutorial will not teach you to sculpt a figure in clay (you need to know how to do this already), or paint and costume your finished figure, I will show the experienced doll maker how to add movement to their doll making skills, by creating a ball jointed doll! Ball joint doll design, sculpting each individual piece, adding joints to those pieces and stringing your creation will all be thoroughly covered!
You will be amazed to see your doll come to life with movement, and if made and strung properly..your doll should be able to stand on it's own un-aided!!
This tutorial is available on disc in pdf format to either be viewed on your computer or easily printed into book form. Translations of this tutorial will also be available in Spanish and French soon, just ask about them and I will let you know when they should be available to mail out. This tutorial is in ENGLISH.
You will not find a tutorial like this anywhere else, I am also writing a full length book on ball joint dolls, tentatively to be published in 2012. The book will cover several jointing options, making your own eyes, wigs, shoes, hats and costumes...plus much, much more!

Now Available in my ETSY shop CD tutorial "Sculpting an OOAK BJD in Polymer Clay"!

Hi everyone,

I have been very hard at work lately, finishing up on 3 commissions and just finished my new tutorial on CD, "Sculpting an OOAK BJD in Polymer Clay". I have had so many requests to teach a class on it, but my schedule is so busy with orders and get ready for shows this year, so I decided to write a tutorial for artists to go at their own pace.
Here is the link to it in my Etsy shop. I will also soon have translations of the tutorial available in both French and Spanish. If you are interested in one of these versions, contact me. They will be available soon!
