Synopsis:
*Important Note about PRINT ON DEMAND Editions: This title will be printed after purchase and will arrive separately from any in-stock items. Please allow approximately 2 weeks for USA delivery, with an additional 2 weeks for international shipments. Expedited shipping is not available on POD Editions. The printing quality in this copy will vary from the original offset printing edition and may look more saturated due to printing on demand by a high-quality printer on uncoated (non-glossy) paper. The information presented in this version is the same as the most recent printed edition. Any pattern pullouts have been separated and presented as single pages. This book concentrates on unique dolls made from polymer and paper clays, especially those that combine sculpted clay with cloth bodies. The author emphasizes creativity rather than imitation, teaching the arts and skills of bringing your idea to life through the sculpture. After discussing how to think about your idea and about specific planning, she introduces supplies and the ways you should begin to think. She then takes you through each detailed step in sculpting the head and body, curing and finishing the materials, constructing the body and clothing, and creating a display. Clear drawings illustrate every detailed step in the process. For additional inspiration, there are color photographs of dolls by some sixty professional artists. In addition to the instructional materials and the gallery of dolls, the author includes reference materials about the new clays, drawing upon experiences other artists have had in working with them. There are lists of resources, study exercises, and more.

Review:
In Anatomy of a Doll master dollmaker Susanna Oroyan gave us a definitive work on cloth dollmaking. In Fantastic Figures she concentrates on unique dolls made from polymer and paper clays, especially those that combine sculpted clay with cloth bodies. Emphasizing innovation rather than imitation, she provides lengthy and detailed information on the clays themselves; on sculpting the head, hands, feet, and legs; on finishing medium and painting methods; and on constructing the body, clothes, hair, accessories, and even display stands and tableau settings. The appendix discusses doll clubs and organizations and offers advice from other doll experts. Numerous line drawings and diagrams supplement the text, but the best feature is the set of exquisite color photographs of dolls made by 60 professional doll artists, some of whose creations are almost frightening in their startling realism.
