    This was my first instructional video for realistic sculpts after finding polymer clay. I was learning to do whimsical little pieces, but after catching a part of this class for free, I realized I wanted to try realistic characters. So I purchased this course…and so glad I did! I learned so much! Karen Baker is a detailed, easy-to-follow teacher with a fun personality (love her laugh!), and skills I greatly admire. I highly recommend this course, and I am building a Karen Baker/Curious Mondo library!
