MY "ROBERT MCKINLEY" DOLL WIP

I finally decided to take the plunge and try making a doll following the techniques of the late artist Robert McKinley in his book "Dollmaking One Artists Approach". I've heard such great things about the artist. I know many artist use some of his techniques in their doll making process. This is my attempt to construct a doll using some of his techniques.

I was hoping my paper clay Head would fit and could be used but it doesn't.

This is where I left off
 Also, Robert McKinley made his doll using Super Sculpey, therefore, this body construction may not work with a Creative Paper Clay head and neck. We will see. This is my doll maker's muse for today.
