Under-sculpt For Your Doll's Head

You can make a skull from polymer clay to use as an under-sculpt for your doll's head. The size of the skull depends on the scale of the doll you are making. For small dolls the under-sculpt must be small enough to fit inside the doll's head, leaving space to add about 1/8  inch of clay over it; for larger heads, about 1/4 inch. Directions for forming a basic skull shape are found here:
