Folk Art Doll finished!

I told you I was on a new adventure right? I am taking a class online using air dry clay. Well, I just finished my first folk art doll and could not believe how much she matched one of my paintings. I had to put them together to take a picture and here it is.

I love this air dry clay I am using called DAS.  I don't know to much about it but I used to do a lot a of green-were in my younger days and this was very similar to it in its texture. But I love the fact that it is air dry.  I let it dry over night and paint it the next day. I thought it was paper clay but there really is now ingredients listed on the package It is also very easy to sand and shape. If you are looking for a quick gift to make this is a fun project to do.   The folk art doll was so much fun that I made a pumpkin and a bird but they are not finished yet but I will post pictures when I am done.  Oh, I have so many ideas to do!!!
