In this class Lisa shows you how to create a mixed media bathing beauty sculpture. This class was a huge hit!
The over-all size of the finished doll can vary but the ones I make and show in the video measure from about 6-7” tall from the bottom of the base to top of head, by about 4-5” wide from shoulder to shoulder . The size of the face on most of my finished pieces: approximately 2 1⁄2 ” in height by about 1 1⁄2-2” wide
You will learn how to make an armature, use alcohol inks to color, sculpt and texture, and make your own mold.
You will receive a PDF with links to the videos for the class as well as the supplies list.
