How to Model the Head of a Doll or Figure



Today we have another demonstration in a series of instructional videos from Marisol Romero about cold porcelain. Marisol Romero is a cold porcelain artist from Argentina, where this medium is very popular.

Many air-dry clay projects call for Styrofoam shapes as armatures for figure modeling  In the following video, while at a craft show, Marisol shows us how to wrap a foam ball and model the head of a doll or figure.  She also demonstrates her method for creating eyes, which are normally painted on.


Video dialog is in Spanish, however you should be able to follow along even if you don't understand the language.  Marisol clearly and carefully shows each step (just mute the sound).

    I love your work! What is the brand of cold porcelain clay do you use? What is the best to buy? I am located in California, USA.

    Thank you!

  2. Hi, most of the stuff featured on this site is made with homemade cold porcelain. See 'RECIPES' in menu. You can get some ready-made by searching Etsy. Commercial brands of cold porcelain are not readily available in USA, most are made in South America.

Sorry I had to re-instate the 'word verification'...I'm getting far too much spam in the comment box.
