I just recently finished a new tutorial, " Sculpting a moveable bust"! The photos shown are from two of my dolls which have been previously sold. A "moveable bust" can be finished just as a bust or as a complete doll! This tutorial will be a first in the series, as I continue on with the next tutorial I will cover how to make a finished "Cabinet Doll" with clay arms, hands, legs and feet and a cloth body.
Many artists make and sell doll busts, and they have really become quite popular. Why not make one a little better than the rest? Make a bust that moves with a ball and socket joint between the head and breast-plate. It will give the collector options for posing their bust.
I cover all aspects of sculpting a beautiful head, and then making a breast-plate to pose the head in. If you choose you can hold on to the head and breast plate and continue on to make a finished doll (to be shown in future tutorials) or mount the head and breast plate for a "moveable bust"! The tutorial has 37 pages with many full color photos and sculpting aides. PDF format on CD, this is a large file and is not available as a download.
