: Do the hardest part of making a doll first. I like to do the heads first because I find them to be the most time consuming and hardest. I will work with several heads at once so I can get in the rhythm of doing one thing. Some dolls have fine fingers that often break. On those dolls, I do the arms first so I don't have to worry about breaking them. The arms and legs only take blushing and can be done with one china firing. Heads usually take 2 to 3 firings.
