Handmade Mouse Lemur by mooki003 Handmade Mouse Lemur by mooki003
Completely handmade realistic Mouse Lemur! Its head and paws were sculpted from polymer clay and painted in acrylics. Its body is a soft faux fur and is posable. It's body is about 9 inches long and with the tail is about 16 inches. Each little finger has a wire in it for strength but they are still fairly fragile.
Because of his short arms and fragile hands he is better suited for sitting poses or clinging to things with out the use of his hands, he is not able to bend at the wrists.

Hi, Wonderful creations, if i saw this outside i believe i would mistake it as an actual animal :3. Anyways, i'm thinking of making my own doll. I bought some craft fur. The doll im planning to make will not be posable. But i fear of the fragileness of the clay. If you were to drop one of these dolls would it cause a great damage in particular to the head? To prevent any damage do you have any recommended clay brands?(sorry to burden you with all my questions, i just figured you were quite professional when it comes to this stuff) Lastly could you name any glaze materials or specific glues you use? 

Thank you so much, Maddy

Hello! I use super sculpey and the strength depends on the shape and thickness. If i were to drop something that is on the thicker side, there might be no damage at all. Very thin parts are very fragile and can crack or shatter. Sharp edges(if dropped) or small ears and horns are very easily snapped if not very thick. I have dropped a few things and not had anything break. I also like to use aves apoxie sculpt or clay, It is air dry and very strong, i use this for thinner things like horns and antlers or whatever i don't want to bake. 
For glossy eyes i use a clear resin. You can also use a high gloss varnish. I also use a satin varnish and a matte spray varnish. 
Hot glue is great, just make sure to thoroughly texture the clay surface. 
Keep in mind , any doll being made with clay is not made to be dropped or handled roughly.

Happy creating!
