One of my favorite air-dry clay artists is Tine Kamerbeek, from Amsterdam. Her work varies from tiny little elves to life size fantasy figures. She prefers to work with air drying clays such as Japanese Paperclay or Formo Fit.
All dolls are one of a kind and are made of air-dry clay, strengthened with a wire frame and with lead in the feet in order to make the dolls stand independently. After sanding and polishing, the dolls are painted with oil paint and varnished several times.
Tine says: “Through the expression, shape and position of the dolls I try to stimulate the imagination and draw the attention of those who look at them”. More photos of her art dolls can be seen on her website and in the members gallery of DABIDA
