As I have ventured into this endless learning process into making silicone dolls I have found so many people are unwilling to share into their process in how they learned how to cast their dolls into silicone.
Along the way I have found an amazing select few that are open to their process and Lydia Yee is one of them.
Her blog “Silicone Baby Connection” has taught me quite a bit.
If you are interested in learning the process visit her blog!!
As for me, I’m learning something new everyday! Here’s the little one I just finished casting:
Unfortunately some things have to be changed and I modified her sculpt and remolded. Wish me luck in casting!
So friends, I have gathered some more sculpting tutorials for you all. Quite a few people have been asking about some specific ones so I have been looking around for them. I thought I would share with you all what I found.
I can’t tell if it’s a boy or girl at the moment. I have to knit a little outfit and sew another one for him/her. Which by the way I am horrible at. Sewing is not my strong suit most definitely. One day I will conquer this sewing machine if it’s the last thing I do!
As for my sculpting, I have been working on a mini tutorial on sculpting fingers. I’m going to be posting it up on youtube for anyone who is learning how to sculpt.
The tools I am using are from AMCreatures on Etsy. He has graciously given us a discount code for 25% off of his tools with coupon code TOOLSONLY25. This is the set I bought:
I have had quite a few people asking me about my sculpt William’s eyes.
The eyes I used were Kemper glass doll eyes. I use them since I first started sculpting and they work for me, so I haven’t tried another ones.
A couple days ago one of my fave sculptors Apryl Jensen made another free tutorial on her other site, making fairies on eye placement and I found it super helpful especially for placing eyes and eyelids when setting the eyes for a realistic sculpt.
