This 7 part article provides instructions and photos of the basic construction for making a 1:12 scale poseable doll.
These 5 1/2 inch to 6 inch miniature dolls are simple to make and take a very small amount of supplies; just wire, clay and wrapping. They are much simpler for beginners because the arms, legs and torso are wire wrapped with cotton yarn, or poly batting strips, and do not need to be sculpted. Only the head, hands and feet are shaped from polymer clay. The body can be dressed in simple costumes too. These tiny dolls are fun to make and turn out sooo cute...try making one!
