Here is a picture of my Dolls. I'm creating a tavern scene to display them in to put them in context. There are lots more, still in my head, waiting to be created, but they keep crashing into this MOSAIC WALL and can't seem to get out!!!

Nicethyme, they are about 15-16 inches high. I don't really pay to much attention to scale, really just do 'em for fun.

Thank you, Everyone!
Yes, Slow- I made them all starting with a wire coat hanger armature and building on that. Just the heads, hands and feet are polymer clay. The bodies are cushion foam and quilt batting over the armature. I had a blast on ebay hunting for bits and pieces to create the tavern. That is still a work in progress. I want to mosaic the floor to look like stone, and make "fieldstone" fireplace. I've borrowed different techniques from various doll artists. An artist named Jill Willich has a tutorial on making hands that shows how to make the realistic fingernails. I used a glaze made for polymer clay to give them a sheen. They really are a fun hobby, though quite time consuming. I've neglected them terribly this winter... I can post a few more pics if you gals would like to see them.
