CADY BJD Day 9 - sanding begins

I use wet/dry sanding pads and have begun on the head and right thigh that I baked last night.

CADY BJD - Day 8 up late - Jointing tools

Day 8 - Jointing tools - I bought tiny wooden beads for the smaller joints like shoulder and knee. I realized I could use coins to shape hollows in clay, bake it and make the ends of the limbs round enough by pushing them and twirling them in the hollows. The coins will work for bigger dolls really well.. but I had a marble and a ball bearing that are smaller and they are working really well for the bigger joints - neck & hips. I have some round wooden tools that might work to make the elbow joints round.
