My Chavant Clay has arrived!!=)

Yesterday my chavant clay NSP arrived and I am curious about how the work with this clay will turn out.

I ordered it in soft, because I read that chavant is a plasticine that comes in grades that are way harder than regular plasticine or Polymer Clays like Super Sculpey. Reasons why I think the clay may turn out to be perfect for me are:

  • It contains no sulphur, meaning I could use silicon molds in future if I wanted to
  • Plasticine never gets hard and can be reused over and over again (=more economic, plus I save some money)
  • The hard texture will allow me to carve things out of the clay
  • The soft texture while it’s warm will make it easy for me to sculpt, to add or remove things here and there etc.

These are the main reasons why I finally chose to buy this clay. I used Cernit Polymer Clay before but didn’t like the odour while baking it in the oven and I experienced some difficulties while sculpting. (But I love the look of Cernit objects, especially dolls, so I might experiment further with it another time)

That’s all for today, I’ll write to tell you about the first impression of the clay in my next post. Have a nice day!

My dream- the main idea behind my doll project

This is a quick post to give you an idea what my plans are with this doll project.
At the moment I am doing a ball jointed doll out of Cernit just for myself.

My aim is to practise sculpting and to learn how to make quality dolls and to maybe produce some dolls in the future. This is a dream and I am writing this down to see if I will achieve this in future. Then I can come back to this post and remember how things were at the beginning of my project.

It would be great to make limited edition dolls,maybe with a one of a kind costuming and unique painting. The dolls will all have a certain theme,which I already have in mind, but I will share this with you as soon as the time is right for it.

Until then, enjoy the journey and watch my first doll made of Cernit come to life!
