ArtDoll Arm & Hand Tips

Here are some great tips for sculpting the arm and hand of your ArtDoll.  You'll also see how our witch is looking now with her ears.

Get ready for the ProSculpt Witch Contest! There are two ways to enter.  If you need witchy supplies, you can enter with our Witch ArtDoll Kit here.  This will also give you access to the online Witchy Women Workshop.  If you just need the Workshop and not supplies, you can sign up for the Workshop here.  Either way, you will be entered into the contest.  

Join us throughout September as we create our Witches.  There will be several witch styles taught in the Witchy Women Workshop.  Then by October 18, 2021, send in your photos or post them in the online course.  The entries will be judged by a few fellow artists and all photos will be displayed at SculptUniversity.com.
