I don't like the way the needle sculpting looks. I could work on it, but I just don't think it will have the look I'm going for. I love the idea of a half scale doll, but if I sculpt from clay, it will be difficult to make the fabric smoothly cover it. The one third scale doll is practically done. The body has been designed, I have three extra heads nearly ready to mold. The dresses in one third scale would require shorter lengths of lace. There are more arguments for one third than for one half. Maybe later on I can do the bigger dolls. I'm so full of frustration, so I will continue my guilt-free vacation and read The History of Lace.


  1. I'm wondering....If you sculpt the head out of clay, why would you want to cover it with fabric, leave like that, and what you'll be missing is the body part...think about it!

  2. I like the body and face to both be of the same fabric. I don't paint, so it's the only way I know of to make the two the same color and look.
