Why so sour, Sour Girl
Anyone out there every been dressed up for a holiday by your parents and just hated it? Well so does sour girl. I went into this without a concrete idea for what I wanted to make. All I knew was that I wanted to make something with big black eyes but not necessarily sinister.

  • How to make a figurine dolls. Sour Girl - Step 1
    Step 1

    Alright heres a plastic ball, just an ordinary ornament that's outlived its usefulness. I drew a line with a sharpie so the eyes would be straight then drilled a hole for each eye.

    Step 2

    I drill two small holes and use whats know as a deburrer to slowly increase its size because I want it to be a tight fight so no or less glue is required. You could always use an exacto blade and be extra careful.

    Time to flesh it out with a little clay, this is your base where you build on your features, or you could just press in some details now for a simple face :)

    Step 4

    I gave her plump little checks and a little scowl. Use a damp cloth or paintbrush to clean any clay off of the eyes because the grit in the clay may mess with the eyes shininess.

    Step 6

    Having much success with my Edgar Allan Poe dolls hair I decided to make hers in the same way. I started with the back of her head, then added the top and indented some parts. NOTE: indent not cut it will shrink a lot, also don't be frugal use a good amount and a tad on the thick side because it will tear and crack as it dries, thicker means it won't pull away so much. Don't be discouraged please experiment.

    A nice "carroty" orange and brown will make a nice auburn color. Mostly orange and add brown until the desired depth in color is reached but feel free to use whatever color you like.

    I painted a block of balsa, drilled arm and leg holes and glued in some wire.

    Step 9

    I carved legs with an exacto blade and chose to leave them roughly hewn as opposed to sanding them smooth, just for a change of pace. The quarter is there for scaling

I'm guilty of having this remind me of myself.
Same length of bangs, tiny top pigtails, brown hair. I loooove it. I think this is how I imagine myself in my mind.
