I definitely need a Hamlet now. But which one? I know - the one from the graveyard scene. Sweater, anorak with hoodie, cap. For the skull I wanted to decapitate a rubber skeleton. Ever tried to buy one? Never available when you need one. The closest thing I could find were flat white skull-shaped lollipops. Seriously. So, what do I do? Make my own using polymer clay. I tell you, Charles Darwin would have been proud of me. I produced anything from an Australopithecus to a Homo neanderthalensis, but no Homo sapiens. Hmm... an eraser in the shape of a skull which I had bought just in case?. Too small, but at least a human skull. :(

Hamlet: 'Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio.'
Skull (wonders): 'Isn't he that man from Dr Who?'

Thank you!
He was fun to make, despite the troubles with the skull. My collection is now complete (No. 10 - my current favourite - to be posted next week), at least the first ten of them. I have a B-List with some more DaveyDolls on it, but they will not be 'born' before next spring.

I don't think it matters much which of our ancestors you managed to make out of polymer clay. The fact that YOU made it out of polymer clay is astounding. I never could have done that well. Yorick is looking pretty damn good. As is David Hamlet.

Thank you! The last skull I made of polymer clay was looking somthing like an ape's skull, so I used the eraser skull instead. - I also tried a fridge magnet in the shape of a sandwich, which didn't look too bad either. ;) Just because our hero sometimes looks so thin that I want to feed him something. -

Thank you! Genius? Not yet, just an apprentice. But I'm working on it. ;)

I hope you don't mind, but I posted your Davey dolls page on our DT Forum because I wanted to share these cuties with other fans and you know what? They all looooooooooove them! And so do I! Wish I could knit like that.

Keep up the brilliant, gorgeous work hun! x

Thank you! I've got some ideas for more Davey Dolls, but it will take a while before I will be able to knit them. I just discovered a site where I can convert my favourite DT pics into cross stitch patterns. Shh, don't tell anyone.

Things he makes us do. Like reading Shakespeare, watching vampire movies, knitting DaveyDolls ...

This little guy is adorable and absolutely perfect. Again I'm fascinated by the details. The skull is priceless. You would think that with Halloween just around the corner you would be able to get a skeleton somewhere. ;)

Thank you!

A Hamlet needs a skull. That's why I delayed him as much as possible, because I couldn't get one. I suppose now that I don't need one anymore, I will find them soon at every corner.
