In order to make a doll baby for this purpose you will either have to create one from scratch, like was done in the old days, or use a commercially bought "voodoo doll" or a doll baby. [Just a bit of trivia....a "doll baby" is a doll that is in the shape of a baby. A "baby doll" is a baby that is as beautiful as a doll!]
If you are making a doll baby from scratch then I would recommend using the unwashed clothing of the person from whom the doll is being made for to make the doll's body. If you can't do this then at least use it as stuffing for the doll.
Making A Doll Baby For Use As A Spiritual Decoy
-Unwashed clothing from the person whom the doll is meant to represent (or a commercially bought "voodoo doll" or child's doll baby)
-Hair from the crown of head
-Fingernail clippings from right hand
-Fingernail clippings from left hand
-Armpit hair from under both arms (if male or if a woman doesn't shave)
-Toenail clippings from right foot
-Toenail clippings from left foot
-Dead skin (The heel is a good place to get a sample from)
-*A cloth heart with drops of blood (can substitute menstrual blood if female)
-1 razor blade
-*1 magnet or lodestone to draw any attack directed toward the person to the doll
-*1 black stone (obsidian, jet, black tourmaline, etc.)
-Needle, thread and scissors
-Buttons or other items for decoration
Cut out the pattern for the doll out of unwashed clothing or else use other cloth of your choice and then use the unwashed clothing as stuffing. Sew it up, leaving the head open, and turn it inside out and then stuff it. You will need to put the personal concerns and ingredients in their proper, corresponding places in the doll. So for example, put the right hand nail clippings in the right hand or arm of the doll baby. The ingredients marked with a "*" are optional. Place the cloth heart, magnet or lodestone, razor blade, and black stone in the center of the doll baby. Spit in the doll head and then sew it up. You will then baptize the doll baby, pray and/or state your petition over it and then deploy it for use.
Note: If you are using a child's doll baby then aim for the kind that has a soft center. You can make a slit in the center and stuff the doll with your ingredients and then sew it up.
Note: If you are going to include a cloth heart with drops of your blood in the doll, try to obtain the blood by pricking the 4th finger of your left hand. This is a special place that is believed to link with your heart. It can be done quite painlessly and you can even buy diabetic lancets that are painless to use as well. Just use them to prick your finger and then squeeze the finger until the blood flows.
Note: Black stones have the power to absorb and dissipate evil and negativity. It doesn't matter if it's a specific type, such as obsidian, jet, onyx, or black tourmaline. Any black or dark colored stone from nature will do the trick as well. Remember, these don't repel evil as that's not how a spiritual decoy or dummy works. We want the doll to be mistaken for the person it represents so that it takes the hit and not the person.
Note: If preferred you can make a doll baby out of wax, clay, Play Doh, homemade playdough, or paper mache clay. Just keep in mind that these items may not be as durable as constructing one from cloth. Below are two recipes for homemade playdough and paper mache clay.
1 1/2 cups of flour (no self-rising)
1/2 cup of table salt
1/2 cup of water (warm)
A few drops of liquid dish soap (any kind)
*Food Colors (optional)
Mix ingredients together in a bowl with a spoon. If the mixture is too wet, add more flour. If the mixture is too dry, add more water. Store the clay in an air-tight container or else keep in a zip-lock bag. If you wish to color your clay then add food coloring to the water before mixing. This clay does not hold intricate details well and often will crack when drying. Once dried, this clay can be painted or decorated as you like. The dried piece will be fine as long as you do not get it wet. If it gets wet it can dissolve and promote the growth of bacteria and mold.
Paper Mache Clay Recipe
Tear pieces of newspaper into extremely small pieces. Soak in hot water overnight. You can then add the mixture to a blender or food processor if you want in order to get a finer texture. In a separate bowl, combine equal portions of flour and water and mix until you get the consistency of glue. You can also just use glue if you prefer. Mix the pulp with the flour/water or glue mixture until you form a clay. Use the paper mache clay to form your dolly. Once dried it can be painted or decorated as you prefer.
Remember that as a spiritual decoy the doll baby can only work if it is in front of you and the oncoming evil. So if you place the doll baby behind your door and then are attacked while out shopping, then the doll can't protect you. So use these in conjunction with additional protective measures. You can make more than one. Once you deposit them you do not need to remove them and cleanse them. The razor blade and the black stone will cut/kill and dissipate the evil. Traditional places to employ or deposit them include the fireplace, a place of entry for supernatural beings, mantel, near doorways or windows, and inside walls. If you are incapable of deploying them in such areas then conceal them in other areas of your home. Do not display them out in the open as any enemy who can steal them will have your personal concerns to attack you with. If you want to bury them then the act of burying will also serve to ground the evil and negative energy. You can also bury or deploy them in a quincunx pattern in the four corners of your home and then once concealed in the center of your home, if you so choose.
