Heeyyy, thanks so much for linking me to this! Why doesn't this have any comments?? Seriously, this is absolutely amazing! Your dolls are so beautiful and inspiring, and the fact you'd take the time to put together such a cute progress collage is really awesome!
My biggest question about dolls like this is how you actually keep the parts together, though! Like, do you glue them? Sew them? And presumably there's a wire frame in there, too, right? From the outside they seem so complicated-- I can't even imagine how they work on the inside! Haha!
Haha! Oh my gosh, wow, thanks!~ <3 8D I start with a simple wire frame and sew the fur on by hand in a tube-like pattern, the clay parts are hot glued on to the wire. They have little holes in the back, and I just slip them onto the ends of the wires. Sometimes I bake clay into the skeleton, to help balance out the weight of the head. Also I use stuffing! So the doll is soft, and the wire isn't felt through the fur.
