I’m kind of a big fan of Daruma Dolls. Most of my friends had never heard of them, so I decided to make a bunch of them for Christmas presents. I sculpted the positive out of oil based clay, cast it in plaster, then shredded up a bunch of my junk mail and pressed it into the mold. Once they dried I glued the halves together and painted them.
Since no one I know had ever heard of them I made a little instructional booklet.
