This review is from: Designing the Doll: From Concept to Construction (Paperback) “Designing the Doll” gives many great examples of remarkable artist dolls, but it also gives some excellent how-tos that will help you realize your own designs. This isn’t a project-oriented book; there are no real step-by-step instructions that will help you make a specific doll. Rather, this book gives the artist a good grounding in basic technique. Where you go from there is entirely your own business. Some of the techniques Oroyan covers are: sculpting, jointing, soft bodies, wire armature and materials. You’ll come away from this book with enough information to design and follow through with your own projects.It’s been a long time since I made a doll, but this book has got me wanting to try all sorts of new things. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply 37 of 37 people found the following review helpful warning! warning!, July 31, 2000 By N.

I eagerly anticipated this book and was not disappointed. The pictures alone are worth the price of the book, but the details included in Susanna’s book are just incredible. Concise and thought provoking. You won’t look at making a doll the same way again. Obviously I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in taking their doll making to the next step. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
