Tuesday tip of the day

When making a pattern template for a cloth doll, simply use a clear transparency sheet. Out line the pattern onto the sheet and then label the pattern (write on the rough side) using a slick writer pen found at most hobby stores. Cut the pattern out and add some two sided tape to hold the pattern to the fabric.

The transparency sheet patterns will last a long time. You can make many patterns with one package of sheets. When not using the pattern, store them in plastic baggies.

Tuesday tip of the day

When using store bought make up to blush your clay sculpt, apply lightly in layers to achieve the color you want.

Then with a stiff brush lightly pounce the color into the wet clay.
(I only use polymer clays for this, I don't know how it works with other kinds of clay.)

Then use a soft conditioned paint brush to smooth the clay, or leave it for a textured look.

When baked the makeup will lose some of it's original color but will be baked into the clay and is permanent.

Come and See!!

The story is... I deleted my Bonnets and Booties Cloth Doll Creations blog a while ago and then I decided to start it up again, but I had to use a different address.

So here it is: Bonnets and Booties Cloth Doll Creations

I have a lot planned for this blog. I have a new doll line I am going to be starting in cloth, and I am going to make a prototype to use as a giveaway. The prototype is still in the planning stages.

I have never had a giveaway before, so give me some ideas on how to plan it !!
