My Little PaperClay Ladies

Hi Girls!
Thank you to all who have left comments and visited...I REALLY appreciate hearing from you! I had posted some of the WIP photos of my paperclay girls and some of you have asked how they turned out. Thank you for that too! I like it when you tell me what you woud like to see or even just say hello. So if you haven't introduced yourself to me yet, I'd love to meet you!
But for now, I'd like you to meet some girls of mine. :)
This is my primitive folky girl. Her heart is removable.
She has a fine crackle finish...you know, because she's really old...just don't tell her that! She thinks she pretty young!
The fabric is from an apron I made...a delicate pointsetta print that doesn't scream Christmas. She could hang out all year long.
Her hairband matches her dress and helps keep her hair tied neatly in the back.
Next up is my Spider girl... I wanted to show the feminine side of this little miss.
She is very girly...she loves her tutu and has a sparkly trim right above it.
She's going to be weaving a web today...see her spool of thread?
I'm having a big thing for hair buns right now...she has four...
No, wait a minute! Those are her babies! Some spiders carry their babies until they are ready to go out on their own...my Spider Lady is no exception!
Lastly, my button girl. You know where that fabric is from! This girl can't get enough buttons! She'd probably let you hold her favorite one though...it is removable.

That's it for now! Please let me know what you think...I would love your advice on how I could improve! I made one other clay doll before this, so I am a new to this!

Thanks girls!

All of the ladies are great. The special touches (buns and removable objects) are adorable.

I have been playing around with paperclay, but havent' been very successful. Where did you learn how to do this?
