These hands by polymer doll artist Diane Keeler require a scale and level of detail unfamiliar to most polymer jewelry folks. (The hands are from a class Diane teaches.)
There’s no cane work pattern or rough texture to camouflage flaws. Many polymer doll makers have been elected into NIADA and their sculptures are highly prized.
For an education in polymer dolls, look at the work of Diane Keeler, Jodi and Richard Creager, Kate Church, Annie Wahl, and others in this very specialized branch of 3D polymer.

Incredible! So talented.
Wow, these are amazing! Couldn’t begin to imagine the amount of work that goes into something like that…browsed the links too, outstanding!
Diane has a class on CraftArtEdu for sculpting a child’s head, whichI am in the process of taking. It is fabulously detailed and I feel certain I’ll be happy with the results, even though I have little experience with sculpting. I hope she’ll add more classes, such as the hands you show in today’s post.
Im taking her hands class .Im thinking of taking her head class .any comment about the head class .did you learn alot
Exquisite! Really remarkable….I can’t even imagine working so small with such control.

Dollmaking is not my passion but I have always been openmounthed at the level of expertise displayed. “Scary good” is definitely the term I would apply here.
