BJD: SleepyHeadSasha - Ready for Coating by FreakStyleBJD BJD: SleepyHeadSasha - Ready for Coating by FreakStyleBJD
My newest head is finally finished and ready for coating. After I've added a layer or two of Mr. Surfacer, I'm going to do a test cast of him, so I can completely polish him and then he's ready to be shipped off to Dollshe Craft!

I used LaDoll clay to sculpt him.

Awesome! I love how your BJD's have a unique look to them :) Would you say that LaDoll clay is strong enough to make a functional prototype (as in a complete doll that can be strung and used), or is it too fragile? I can't afford to cast in resin right now, but I'd love to continue experimenting with dolls once I find a suitable material :)

Well, if you're looking for clay strong enough, I'd advice you to use Super Sculpie or Apoxie sculpt. LaDoll and other air drying clays are very soft and the tension of the string would tear the more fragile parts apart.

Thank you so much for telling me that! Many sources say Super Sculpey is a bad material to use, and then go on to explain how they use paper or stone clay instead. This lead me to believe they were stronger than polymer clay, but thanks to you I know better. I'll keep on experimenting with my Super Sculpey <3

As long as Super Sculpey is baked it is a lot stronger than paperclay will ever be. I've seen plenty of people test string polymer clay without problem.

If you'd like to become a member of a dollmaking forum, there is The Joint. It's a great source of information and it might be of use to you. www.denofangels.com/joints

Good to know. I usually bake my polymer clay for 2-3x longer than the instructions say. It does start getting a brown cast to it and always requires painting, but it makes the clay quite a bit stronger. My interest is in creating a series of one-off dolls until I'm good enough at sculpting to merit resin casting, so hopefully sculpey will be suitable for that application :)

I've actually tried to join the The Joint multiple times in the past, but the registration has been closed for some time :( They also do not allow access to non-members, but I'll keep checking periodically to see if they open again. I really appreciate you taking the time to answer my questions :) I'm sure you get tons of silly questions from newbies and it's nice of you to respond nevertheless :love:

I don't mind gettting questions about doll making at all! It's a wonderful hobby and I like it when other people make their own dolls.

 

Good luck with yours and hopefully you'll be able to join The Joint soon.

Yes, just like my other dolls, I'm making this one to sell. Hopefully I can get him to Dollshe Craft in time to release him around Christmas.

Hi Cashda,

 

At first Dollshe's Oriental skintone, because that's the easiest colour to find a resin match for. But I have to confess that I'd really like a Pale Tan version of him...

Thank you :D. The tan version will have to wait, though. First the Oriental Skin and then, if there is enough interest in him for another batch, I might do a tan version :).

Hoeverre zijn zijn maten vergelijkbaar met Drazen? 


Hij is wel erg leuk geworden.

Dit hoofd is weer gemaakt om op Puck's lijf te passen, dus zijn maten zijn hetzelfde als Puck en Drazen. Ook Sasha gebruikt 10mm ogen en een 7-8 inch pruik.

 

Dank je.

Ok dank je wel voor de info. Dan kan ik hem helaas niet gebruiken voor Insomnia. (Die moet 70 cm worden want zijn partner is een Iplehouse EID Jessica en dan staat als 60 cm er niet zo perfect naast. Maar geen ramp voor hem ga ik toch een uitzondering maken op mijn eigen regel alleen mijn wishlist nog naar huis halen. Dus ik verzin vast wel een nieuwe leuke char voor hem. Want ik vind hem echt heel erg leuk.

I know! His first release will probably be done in Dollshe's Oriental Skintone, because it's easiest to match with other company's bodies, but just like with Drazen, I'd love to get a light tan release of him as well.
