Correctly Sizing A Dolls House Dolls Hand
Comparing a cylinder of polymer clay to a doll's head to determine the amount needed for a hand.

For a doll's hand you need a piece of polymer clay the length and half the width of the head, with a diameter equal to the wrist.

To choose the correct amount of material to begin your sculpture of a doll's hand in dollhouse scale, roll out an amount of clay or putty in a cylinder the rough diameter of the doll's eventual wrist. Cut the cylinder so that it reaches from the doll's chin to the top of the head. The cylinder should be narrower than half of the doll's facial width. Longer arms or wrists can be added once the doll hands are formed.
