borrowed this from the library....
"Dollmaking" by E.J. Taylor, one of the best doll making books I've seen.
Instructions and explanations, not patterns, for assorted rag, paper, stocking, papier-mache, clay, and wax dolls. beautiful photos! it seems to be out of print, but there are several used copies available on amazon.
I have 4 more of my regular dolls that need finishing, after that I want to try the clay doll, using a fimo or similar type material... I'll have to do a bit of research. any suggestions?
