Making a dolls body

Hi there, well I have made the armature for the witch, however, I didn't make the neck long enough.  I saw something on another site that showed the body done in felt.  So I got some fibre filler and felt and cut the felt up into strips and wound it over the fibre and glued it down.

I don't know if these are the right materials or not.  Anyway here is a photo of it. Don't laugh, remember I am new at this and I am just winging it. xxx

If anyone can help me in this area, it would be most appricated.

Hi Tinypearl. Have you thought about doing a rough sketch of the doll you are making?

You can have your sketch enlarged to the size you want and use it as a sort of blueprint you can refer to as your creating your dolls body. Just my 2 cents :)

Hi Brian, thank you for you help. Most of the time I just pick up my clay and start playing and the next thing you know, I am actually making something without thinking.

I haven't sketched or painted for some time now I suppose, it's time to get back into it. xxx
