Rag Doll Polymer Clay Switchplate Cover - Finished

Rag Doll, Copyright 2013 by C. Musser, Polymer Clay on
Nylon Switchplate
Took a little while longer than I anticipated, but here is the polymer clay version of the rag doll switchplate cover sketch from last week.  Button eyes came from a fabulous button mold from MoldMeShapeMe on  Hair bows came from a high quality silicone mold from Etsy shop, MoldMuse.

Loved working with the silicone molds with polymer clay - just mist the mold with water and the poly clay comes out with ease.  Also, it is possible to bake polymer clay in the molds themselves since the silicone will withstand the heat of the oven.

Working with silicone molds makes me want to try creating my own molds for frequently used polymer clay components - I suspect there shall be a post about this in the near future.

Original sketch for Rag Doll can be found in this post (February 13, 2013)
