How to Model the Head of a Doll or Figure

Today we have another demonstration in a series of instructional videos from Marisol Romero about cold porcelain. Marisol Romero is a cold porcelain artist from Argentina, where this medium is very popular.

Many air-dry clay projects call for Styrofoam shapes as armatures for figure modeling  In the following video, while at a craft show, Marisol shows us how to wrap a foam ball and model the head of a doll or figure.  She also demonstrates her method for creating eyes, which are normally painted on.

Video dialog is in Spanish, however you should be able to follow along even if you don't understand the language.  Marisol clearly and carefully shows each step (just mute the sound).

  1. She's speaking in Spanish and some Portuguese, because she's teaching people in Brazil. Kinda neat! Both languages are somewhat similar so she's able to teach her Portuguese speaking audience. Also that's why she's being so careful with the step by step. Whatever she can't get across in words she does in gestures and showing carefully her method. By the way she also has comprehensive tutorials you can buy in her webpage.


Thank you very much for taking the time to comment! ;-)
