Also here, take some minutes to search for tutorials. Most of them are perfectly explained and helpful in terms of making the body of a doll!

So, you bake the plaster and the clay together correct?  And in a conventional cooking oven, the plaster won't catch fire?

Yes, you bake the plaster with the clay in a normal cooking oven. The plaster does not catch fire at this low temperature, but should be supervised and not left alone while in the oven. Though the plaster will get brown after a few bakings and should be replaced.

I have a question- I'm making a mini art doll of a sloth, and I want to make a body, and also want his arms to pose- how would I do that? I'm using this picture as reference- it would mean a lot of you could help!

Twist two wires in their middle together, so it looks like a "X". Then just use Super Sculpey or Apoxie to form the claws, sew a body around it and attach the head :meow: There are a couple good tutorials here on DA that can help you! This for example: www.deviantart.com/art/Armatur…

The floral foam is fine in the oven?

:iconlimitlessendeavours:
LimitlessEndeavours Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2013  Professional General Artist
Yes, it should be alright, i had no problems with it. You should just open the windows while and after baking, cause the foam smells a little bit. If you are not sure about that, use some aluminum foil instead of foam. But always cover your base completely with plaster. Don't leave a gap! Foam (especially styro-foam) expands in heat and can crack your base and your sculpey work, if not completely covered!
