A Needle Sculpting Tutorial by Sharon Mitchell.
What makes an expressive face? This Tutorial shows different ways to make an expressive face and includes a head pattern to practice on, with pictorial step-by-step instructions for sewing and needle-sculpting it.
The tutorial offers different things to do to colour, and give expression to the face. It talks about different fabrics and how they may behave, what can be done with mouths, eyes, and hair, and what tools to use.
This Tutorial is a good place to start for gathering information, for the person interested in developing further skills in figurative cloth dollmaking.
