Taking an online class to make dolls!!

I am having a lot of fun learning to make fabric and paper clay dolls online. Gritty Jane (note her blog above and the pretty logo) has a great class that really works out for me. I get to work on it at home at my own weird hours, and we get to share our work with others of similar interests. I have my body gessoed and will be trying out the paper clay soon. perhaps tomorrow, since it is getting late today. I had to listen to the videos and make my notes so I have an idea of what I am supposed to do. Basically, we smear stuff all over the doll, sculpt it, and then bake it. Painting comes afterwards, and then we dress her.
