Make my own Ball Jointed Dolls

After I entering this hobby, a ball jointed dolls, I really struggling with the urge to keep wanting to buy more dolls

right now I currently waiting another doll that I purchase to come to my house, I really dunnno how my parents will react, becouse when Nalika arrive, and they know the price, they  kinda disappointed with me, for I wasting so much money for something that are not primary necessity..
and I really understand about it, I grow up from thigh budget family, and we are not rich, our economy are better now, but we still use the pricipal not to waste money for sumting that are not really necessary.

and you know how there lotsa doll company out there, with so many beautiful dolls, after you buy your first doll, it seems Impossible NOT to buy another.. its like a curse, most of my acquaintance that also in this hobby have more that 5 dolls, and some even have more than 20.

keep buying dolls are not an option for me, even if I have the money, I cant let this kinda urge keep haunting me in my dreams... while at first I though buying only one doll is enough.. Im so naive... LOL

that why I have this ideas to made my own BJD, and what a luck, I stumble upon this tutorial.
and from that tutorial, I started to made my own BJD

the process are really-really tiring and hard.. also bloody because I always accidentally cut my thumb with ecto knife XD
for you who are wondering why BJD are so expensive. try to make one.. youll know why.

well then enough for the blabering, here is Uclit, Ucing Alit, a tinnies doll that Im currently working on ^^
yes he still under progress, I still have to sanding him and make him a jointed tails, and I hope in the end, cast him into resin :)
enjoy ^^

Ingridients : Living doll, Sanding paper ,rubber string, doll eyes, cutter,

Uclit still not assemble, and I haven't completed his hand part

Hi! I can't speak English very well ;__; but, I want say that I love this doll that you created by yourself. It's really inspiring, and makes me want make some to me as well. XD
I'd like to ask you, if you think it's possible make one with cold porcelain?!
well...thank you for sharing your experience, I hope you can improve your techniques and buy more dolls too^^

Xiahny your English are very very great, its okay I understand it perfectly, my English are not good also.

hmm the last time I done something with porcelain is long time ago, if I'm not mistaken, the way yo work with porcelain is the same like you work with clay right? but is stronger than clay, its easier to shape, and the risk have bubble on the dough make it saver to bake (if there's a bubble in the dough when you bake it it will pop and destroy your mold )

but actually BJD maker are using Porcelain , so its really possible to do.

I dont use porcelain because in my mind if its fall it will broke into pieces and it will be really scary O_Oa
living doll are much elastic, so its stronger when it falls, but in the end I wanted it to be resin..

now you make me wanted to use porcelain to, lol XD
why not maybe someday
Im still new with this so lets learn little by little XD

Xiahny said...

Thank you for reply me!!^^
Well...I think that cold porcelain can handle a fall...but I guess that maybe the doll will be heavier...
I want make one doll...and I'll probably use cold porcelain~ I hope it doesn't fail XD

keren amat boneka naa...!
jadi kepengen buat juga...
maklum BJD's sangat tidak bersahabat dengan kantong ane...

itu clay living doll na beli dimana ya?

Archie-The-RedCat said...

@Celvany wah Rc beli Living doll nitip ke temen, barang impors soalnya ga ada yang jual di Indo kecuali dealer.
harganya 250 ribu/500gr
muahal, si uclit ngabisi, kira2 bahan 200gr an.. jadi lumayan ngirit..
tapi berikutnya mauk pake air dry clay ajah lebi murah kayaknya

Tosan Aji said...

Wow Its must be Red soon.... :p

Celvany Clynvae Laxx said...

wahh... air dry clay...

g lagi kepikiran kalo buat clay rumahan sih... tp bukan buat BJD's.
tp buat kepala patung plastik konvensional menjadi bentuk kepala yang bgs... wahahahaha

kalo sukses bru merambat ke sculpting lain

ntar mau bli tepung dll ama pisau sculpting..
