Ball Joint Doll, Custom Dolls

In this brief post I’ll be talking about the arm joints. It’s very similar to the leg joints. I used a double joint for the elbow to give more movement. I carved and sanded the sockets to fit the joints. You can see there is an angle where the upper and lower arm meet when they bend. This allows it to bend further. It takes time and patience to get the fit just right and don’t be afraid to make a mistake because you can always add clay and start again.
