MAKING MY 1ST BALL JOINT DOLL PART 8

Ball Joint Doll, Custom Dolls

At this stage I am replacing the head cap and sealing it in place since I won’t be changing out the eyes. If you purchase a resin ball jointed doll from a company they make the head cap removable to change the eyes. I smoothed out the head and added a rough version of the ears. Once they dry I will sand them and refine the shape.

Next I started working on the balls for the joints. I took wooden balls and beads smaller then the size I want and then wrapped them in clay and smoothed it as round as possible in my hand. You can see a break down of the process at Everyday Art by Kathy O’Connell.

Finally for the day I cut the arms at the mid-point for the elbow joint.
