Thank you. She is very alive seeming doll. each time I paint her she looks entirley diffenrt and her expressions change easily from sad to ornery to scary. what I really love about BJDs is that they have like little souls instead of being inanimate objets as alot of other dolls seem to me to me.

What was she scultped out of? Very nicely done...I love how sliky her skin looks and her big wide-eyed look is so captivating.

The original was sculpted of polymer clay, this is a resin cast from a mold. This first resin I used a very translucent white resin,but the final casts are a light rose and not translucent.

I just thought Id warn ya casting has a few unforseen complexities. resin is fairly cheap but, silicone for molds adds up if you do it much,plus if you want to cast in resin without pinholes you will need a pressure tank and an aircompressor. This was my first resin casting and molding experiance. I sort of jumped in head first. I didnt realize Id need so much equipment. And it took me a long time to save up the money to inch forward.

I sculpted my original of prosculpt light polymer clay and it was far too soft ,plus it fractured for me and had to be glued together and some thin parts wanted to crumle.. for fear of losing my original I made a mold before it was really fully refined. I then attempted to refine the resin parts and then remold. Alot of extra mold making and alot of sanding and dremeling on resin which is freekin annoying. If I try again Ill used a stronger polymer clay like Kato or Premo.
I got June Goodnows video on resin & silicone mold making,but you can also learn most of that process online free. I hope it goes well for you.
