    The easiest joints

    Some of you know I am rather drawing and painting but I have some sculpey and stuff like that because I liked to sculpt when I was a kid. I had looked for tutorials but not found was I was looking for and thought I might ask here.

    I would like to know if you have any tutorial or know where to get information about how to make the very easy joints on critters like connect the arm to a body, so it can at least hand without maybe able to hold a pose, just movable?
    That would be just with sculpey or any clay.
    And on the other hand if you work with fabric for a body.
    Any idea or where I could look?
    Till now I only sculpted like this but would love to go more into a doll direction


    I would glad for tipps and hints, for anything
    Thank you!

    The sleeping kitty on flower petals is soooo cute!! Did you sculpt him and paint him?? He would be adorable with joints, I hope you figure out how to make moving animals.

    Hi Nada, I can recommend a book called Designing the Doll by Susanna Oroyan. It has lots of useful information for designing dolls of all kinds such as cloth, wood & clay. It includes techniques for wire armatures and many different joints. An excerpt from the back cover reads: "Covers a wide variety of construction methods, such as applications of wire armature in body construction, general concepts of mold making, sculpture mechanics, in-depth discussion of jointed figures and methods of assembling your doll." It may be of help to you.
