Baba Yaga

This is an OOAK hand sculpted doll. She has been sculpted completely from Super Sculpey over an armature and is not posable. Height - 16cm. She has been painted with acrylic paints which are not waterproof. I have added varnish to the lips, eyes and nails. Baba Yaga's clothing has been sewn over the finished doll and cannot be removed. I have used beautiful grey mohair to make her hair. The hair and kerchief have been glued to Baba Yaga's head and shouldn't be removed.

Baba Yaga has cotton pants, dress, apron, vest and kerchief. I have woven some traditional shoes for her using synthetic straw. She has a cane made from paperclay. I have made a slanted wooden stand which helps her to stand up, she cannot stand on a straight surface. The stand is not attached to Baba Yaga, she can be taken off and put back on it. All of this is included.

Baba Yaga is a mysterious old lady who has magical powers and lives in a forest far from people. My Baba Yaga is friendly and maybe a little bit cunning.

I used Super Sculpey clay (which requires baking) to make Baba Yaga. This type of clay has a tendency for "half-moons" to appear after baking. They are the white semicircles visible on the clay. Baba Yaga also sustained a crack in her left elbow joint during baking. This can be seen in the photograph below (shown from the front and back).
