The elbow joints on my new doll aren't sueded and they sound a little scratchy. Is there a particular type of clay we are supposed to use to suede with clay? I think they are too thin for leather sueding, but the scratching porcelain concerns me. I was going to use LaDoll white airdry clay. Is this ok to use?
I think you should ask Eli if she can send you a piece of the material she uses for the rest of the body. It shouldn't cost too much. Personally I wouldn't use use clay even if I know some artists use it. Leather would be my best option. I still haven't mustered up the courage to unstring Lan to suede her joints though...
I dont see why you cant use paper clay, then you would just need to let her dry. I have also see people use caulk- like silicone caulk. The nice thing about the paperclay, is that you could easily remove when you want to, also it is the right color.
