PolymerCafe October 2012 Front Cover

I'm all excited to be able to announce that I've got another project on the cover of PolymerCafe magazine.
I can't wait to get my hands on this issue!
Halloween issues are always my favorite and I keep them for decades. 
I used STAEDTLER fimo to make this guys hands feet and face.

I used the same eye technique that I posted about here. 

Here's our boy, posing sheepishly in the window of the Witches castle. Looks like he's finally gotten his hands on those ruby slippers. Such a clever boy!

This tutorial is focusing on how I add teeth to my dolls.  But it turned into a full blown doll construction tutorial. This style of doll is so fast and easy to make and he's a cuddler despite looking like an evil minion. 
Grab your copy quick!

Saw this and I just knew I had to get this magazine. I've been trying to learn more about plush making with clay parts. Hopefully my first one will come out like I want it to.

Love your tutorials btw, they're so helpful!

thanks for the cheery kind words. Plushies are so much fun to make and adding the detail of a fimo clay face gives them loads of character.
Let me know if you have any questions about the article once you grab your copy. Can't wait to see what you come up with!
