Paperclay Face Time!

The paperclay I ordered arrived and I have been working with it all day. I really like this stuff, I can give these dolls a more painterly style versus the very realistic dolls I usually sculpt. The high humidity is a pain but I just set what I'm working on near a warm oven and let it dry that way.
So far I have 6 heads going at the same time!! These dolls will all be 14 to 19 inches tall and one of them is going to be an alien;)
Here are my works in progress, hope you enjoy

I couldn't resist trying some hair on one just to get an idea of what they will look like. Now I just have to sand them all, add some ears, a few tweaks and finishing touches.
Next step will be to test what paints and powders will achieve the right look for my dolls.
Bye for now,

I would love to see the experiments with the paint too! I've been wanting to work with the paper clays myself and it would be really interesting to see how they turn out with different kinds of paints :)
