Lalaloopsy by Starry Delight, step by step photos to create clay figure shown above. Click on 1st photo (or click 'open photo viewer') to go thru the slideshow for added instruction. She uses cookie cutters for cutting some of the shapes, barbeque sticks for the legs, and a flower cup to create a perfectly round head. Optionally, with air dry clay, you could use a Styrofoam ball and cover it with clay for Lalaloopsy's perfectly round head (do not use foam with clay that gets baked).
This would be a suitable project for cold porcelain, Creative Paperclay or any one of the soft clays.
