First we started with the head. As you can see this is definitely not an elder elf but rather an african woman.
So next we created the body. So far so good. This one looked pretty much as it was supposed to look. Next came the hands. How anybody can turn tiny fingers is beyond me. I butchered them and they went right into the garbage bin.
My next idea was to make head and hands out of polymer clay.
And once again it doesn't look like an elder elf.
Next I started dressing my nutty professor (he looks like one, don't you think?). After I've finished dressing the clothes body I had to admit that the head and the body don't fit together. So I started yet another head. And here is the finished doll. "Big bad wolf" or "Puss in Boots". You decide ! I'm done with it ! LOL
