Teaser for smaller unicorn ;)

She is coming along well. I am to the stage of sanding and preparing for mold making.

As you can see, she is much smaller than the previous version (the bust and torso of the bigger one are next to her in the pic). You can also see the size difference in the hands in the photo.

I can't wait to have her cast and beautiful :dance:

Sorry for the poor quality photo, my camera is not working and I had to use my phone.

Yes, I wish I could have gotten a clearer pic, but that was with my phone which is terrible at taking photos :/

She is sculpted from Super Sculpey. It looks splotchy because I use a boiling method to cure the clay in the microwave and that causes a whitish film. In these photos she has been sanded a bit letting the flesh colored clay show through.

The best resource I know of were you can ask questions about ball jointed doll making is at this forum: [link]

There are a lot of doll makers there of various levels of experience who can answer just about any question you can think of ;)

I looked in the forum to see how you can join and found this:
----------------
If you have come across this site and you don't have an account, you can contact the Admin account via the "contact us" link at the bottom of the page and let us know what your preferred username would be and whether you want to join as an observer or an artist (if you don't specify, we will set the account as observer by default). We can then set up an account for you and email a password reminder so you gain control of the account. Please note, you will still be required to post an introduction about yourself in the Lurkers Bullpen before you get full access to the forum.
----------------

The "contact us" is a little link on this page [link] in the lower right-hand corner.

Hope to see you there :D

I sculpt them first with Super Sculpey clay then I make molds from silicone. After that I pour them in resin. It is a difficult process but is rewarding. I recommend joining the forum at [link] to learn more about the process. You can ask questions there and read a lot about how to make dolls.
