Today is Tutorial Tuesday and I found this tutorial on a Russian website to share. Author describes a great technique for making a perfectly round ball using LaDoll clay. The artist will use the balls for the joints in her BJD dolls, but I bet there's other uses for a perfectly round clay ball! This technique may also work for other brands of air-dry clay (such as Creative Paperclay). You'll have to experiment.

|"Spring" by Tireless Artist|
The Tireless Artist shares her tips for working with air-dry clay when creating art dolls plus some additional tips for saving and restoring "old" clay.
To quote the artist (Dorote): "I can’t describe happiness and excitement when I discovered art dolls. I think this is most complicated and interesting art ever. The doll artist has to be also a sculptor and a painter and hairdresser and couture and also needs knowledge of working with different materials and making different accessories. Doll making is my full time occupation now."
