Making the doll to sit in the clock hand.
Bake it in the oven during 30 minutes at 110°C/230°F
After baking, paint a plastic surface (can be glass or metal surface too) with the alcohol based marker and dilute the color with the the brush.
This brush contains a reservoir filled with alcohol.
When painting in the polymer clay it will create a watercolor (aquarelle) effect.
If you don't have a brush with reservoir, you can use a normal brush and soak it in the alcohol.
The more alcohol we use, more diluted will be the color.
Less alcohol means more concentrated color.
Envolve cotton in a toothpick and soak it in alcohol to make little dots in the doll dress
With the marker paint the doll cheeks and Smooth it with alcohol
Use a fabric ribbon to close the journal and glue it in the front of the notebook.
