Make An Armature For An 8 to 12 Inch Doll
This doll maker is using white floral tape to cover any exposed armature wire, and the aluminum foil and aluminum duct tape covering the wire (you can also use masking tape). She used foil for bulking out the body on this size doll. Most smaller dolls do not need to have the bulk added. The object of bulking out the body is to apply a layer of polymer clay that is uniformly about 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch thick to ensue complete curing during baking.
NOTE: Notice that the foil is crumpled loosely around the wire; do not crush it tight.
