She is made of polymer clay, pearl ex is added to the clay to give it shine and the blue shadows are painted with pastels.

It realy is a great medium that hasnt even been explored much by fine artists. I look forward to seeing what you would do!

Yes I make all the clothes by hand. Im definatly not good at sewing. Some of it is glued into trenches I carve into the clay to minimize the amount of sewing . Im hoping to get better at designing fancy period gowns. but if thats not your thing you can sculpt the clothing in differnt colored clays.

Thats true the full multimedia effect is the best. I would love to discuss methods etc more with you! Your paintings are incredible and just the idea of similar sculptures intruges me.
clay never gets wasted that is a nice thing about it. if you sculpt and it looks bad you can smoosh and reuse. Even dirty and old clay can be used in cores or mixed in black clay

Your welcome , no trouble:)
