hi, im doing my first doll and the material I use for that is polymer fimo and I don’t know how to create the union in the neck ,Im really lost and I need help >.< I only have done the head, I’m going to upload a picture. what material you use?thanks
Hello! One important thing about getting the head to “stick” to the body is the head must be hollow. Here’s an example of a doll partially put together:
The torso is hollow and there’s a hole in the top of the neck for the elastic to go through. Then there’s a matching hole in the bottom of the head. Another important part is your doll’s head must be in at least two parts. It needs a sort of “lid.” Hmmm…I don’t think I’m the best at explaining this………
I HIGHLY recommend checking out the forum on this site:
Ball-Jointed Doll Artist, Allison Mecleary is making a wonderful and extremely detailed tutorial of making a porcelain BJD. You could very easily follow the first several steps and make a resin doll instead though!
There’s also a section in the Enchanted Dolls forum about doll making and the members there are very knowledgable and super sweet. If I were you I’d consider making a thread there and posing questions to them! They are excellent at explaining things unlike me!
Oh and I’m currently working with a polymer clay called Sculpey!
Good luck! <3
