5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the beginner, enough technical, great instructions
I am new to doll-making but not paper mache. I found I was moving to dolls and came across this book. It's very good technically and the photos are excellent. The methods are great and well thought out and explained. I have just begun playing with the paper clay product and this gives it a good testimonial. Good job! Also, Ms. Gottilly's dolls are fabulous!

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay for Paper MacHe
I'm not really interested in Paper MacHe but I've been a dollmaker for quite some time and am very interested in learning more about Paperclay. There is another book that is supposedly the best for Paperclay - "Sculpting Doll in Paperclay" by Robert McKinley but it's sold out and difficult to find - so I opted for this one. I found this book to be fairly similar...

This review is from: Dollmaking with Papier Mache and Paper Clay (Paperback)
I'm not really interested in Paper MacHe but I've been a dollmaker for quite some time and am very interested in learning more about Paperclay. There is another book that is supposedly the best for Paperclay - "Sculpting Doll in Paperclay" by Robert McKinley but it's sold out and difficult to find - so I opted for this one. I found this book to be fairly similar in techinique to many other dollmaking books in other media. There wasn't all that much that made it stand apart. I guess if you're very interested in Paper MacHe, then this is the book for you. If you're wanting to learn more about Paperclay techniques, skip this book and look for the one by McKinley instead.

This review is from: Dollmaking with Papier Mache and Paper Clay (Paperback)
This book is illustrated with many magnificent and easily followed directions. You can really make a doll that is more meaningful then all others because you have made it with your own hands. The authors step by step instructions are so simple to follow! Your finished product is your own masterpiece, thanks to Doris. Bravo, Doris.
