Here is a doll-making course that combines sculpted clay with cloth bodies. It presents each step in sculpting the head and body, curing and finishing the materials, and constructing the costume.
This book, and its companion, Designing the Doll, are both fabulous. The text is clear and easy to read, the line drawings are excellent, and the wide array of figures in photographs is very impressive. The book is heavily illustrated, and Susanna not only knows what she's doing, but she also write a great book about it. I'm a professional sculptor, and so often times the books fall far short...
