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.

You're english is fine and thank you so much for the compliment. It's always good to hear why people like a sculpt, because it gives me great feedback :).

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.
