I’m Frederieke Westerveld, and I’m a dollmaker from the Netherlands. All of my dolls are first sculpted in clay – I mainly use LaDoll and Super Sculpey Firm – and then cast in high quality resin.

Since I’ve never had any sculpting lessons, I taught myself by reading tutorials, doing tons of research on anatomy and watchting Philippe Faraut videos on Youtube. And, of course, I practice a lot.

All of my dolls are for sale. So, take a look here on my DA page, or my website www.

I want to say thank you :). Normally, I write you a note, but because I've been neglecting this page for the past few months (the usual excuse: busy), DeviantArt seems to think that I'm a spambot when I'm doing this.


So.. well... yeah. Thank you!

Hello! I've been researching for making my own doll, and I came across your beautiful gallery! Since I'm also using Ladoll clay, I have a small question I hope you can answer? I know you use Tamiya primer and Mr Surfacer, but is it just for casting? Can it also be painted on and give the doll a smooth finish (or is it too smooth for painting the original doll?)

Thank you!

To be honest, I don't think Tamiya and Mr. Surfacer are very good as a primer for painting. The coating is pretty vulnerable, so you'd have to be very careful with your doll.

These primers are meant to fill up small irregularities. If you'd like to know what materials to use so you're able to paint your product, I'd suggest you browse the miniature model forums (although, they paint over plastics). And the most important thing: Experiment. Please, do not prepare your entire sculpt, until you're certain the materials do what you want them to. :)

Would you ever consider making tutorials? :aww:
FreakStyleBJD Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
Well, making tutorials is a lot of work and I don't really have much time to work on my sculpts, so for now I'd have to say "No". There are quite a few tutorials out there though :).

I heard bad things about Freak Style and looked you up. I think they are all wrong. Your style is amazing. I really love Salomé's body, the curves and the hips are wonderful. If I had the money I would buy one in a heartbeat.

Did you mean those confessions on Tumblr? I had no idea what that was about. Of course everyone has different tastes and my dolls are not everyone's cup of tea, but they made it sound like I created something hideous. 

Glad you like her :).
