Magic Skin" doll sculpting video This new 'Magic Skin' sculpting technique allows you to get a clean, smooth finish without all that horrible, time-consuming 'blending', and handling of the clay. Therefore, you are able to end up with a much cleaner piece, lots faster than can be imagined. The people who have ordered the video, have given me feedback that they can't believe how my new technique solves the 'dirty clay' problem, as there is much less handling of the clay.It sure does beat the old way of adding little bits of clay and having to 'blend' and 'blend' and blend' until your arm almost falls off. Sculpting is actually 'FUN' again. Another nice thing about this new video, is that you watch me create a polymer clay doll head from start to finish, including building the armature. The 'Magic Skin' technique works equally well for adult, children or baby doll sculpting. You do not need any special tools with this method.
