I messed up my back yesterday and couldn't sleep so I was able to finish my bride sooner than anticipated. I'm very happy with the finished doll. There are many details too small to see in the photos - "diamond" choker, earrings and engagement ring, blue garter, pearl pumps with silver trim, upswept hair with cascading ringlets.
I mixed Sculpey III with Kato polymer clay for this doll. It was easier to sculpt and smooth but I had some problems with cracking after baking and had to do some repair work. I guess I'll have just use straight Kato. It's stronger and has a slight sheen after baking that I really like. I'm just not good at sculpting and smoothing it yet.
