Couple of wood and plastic tools – You also need the right kind of tools to give shape to the doll or to cut the clay.

Wooden sculpting stand – You also need a proper stand where you can do doll sculpting comfortably and where sculpt part is properly dried.
Plastic cover – You also need an appropriate size plastic bag to cover up the body when you are not doing anything with the sculpture. Plastic cover also prevents the clay from drying.
