New OOAK BJD in the works!

I am pleased to finally be sculpting my first doll of 2012! Since moving this last fall I have not had a space set up which I could work. I have set up a "make do" studio in a corner of my bedroom. It will work for now until I get the carriage house on our property remodeled into my studio.
This latest BJD is a one of a kind sculpted of polymer clay. She is a first for me, in that she is the first closed eye doll I have ever made. She will be the sleeping Snow White. 14 inches high when standing, she is also the doll shown being made in my latest tutorial. "Advanced polymer BJD techniques" will be an advanced version of my previous Polymer BJD making tutorial. I will be showing more jointing techniques, including "double jointing", as well as some extras! I am hoping to have this new tutorial finished by early February!
As I work on this doll I will post more wip pics here! Stay tuned!

A New Year, and New Dolls!

Happy 2012 everyone!
I am psyched about all the new things I have coming this year! I am already at work on a follow up tutorial to my popular "Sculpting a BJD in polymer clay" tutorial. This new tutorial on CD will have more elaborate jointing, with insructions to add these techniques to your next OOAK BJD, as well as some fun extras! I will soon be posting work in progress pictures here on my blog as well as on my Face Book page! If you are not yet following me on Face Book please look me up, Turtle Child Studio!
I will also be starting new work on my prototype for my new line of porcelain bjds...so stay tuned! Happy New Year friends!! I hope you all have a blessed and happy new year!
