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!
