    The 'Someday' doll...

    Hello friends!

    Okay, so I did already start a thread for this doll... But that was some three years ago!

    When I look back through that old thread, all I can see is how much toing and froing I did while making and remaking parts over and over again. I feel like the doll I am working on today may as well be a completely different doll, so I hope you'll allow me to indulge in a new thread for her

    Today was the first time I've strung her complete with all her parts and I had some fun playing and posing her. I took some photos to share...


    I'm now going to focus on sanding and priming her, ready for moulding and casting. I would like to cast her in porcelain 'someday', but I hope to start with resin because I've had a little experience in that before.

    Thanks for reading and I hope you'll enjoy the photos. Feel free to comment and critique!

    How very posable she is. She seems to have an extra lower abdomen joint which looks interesting

    I am in awe of all you talented doll makers, the most I have ever made is a small sheep out of paperclay that is completely rigid. and that was a challenge enough

    Well done, look forward to more progress

    She is amazing and about 100 steps closer to completion than mine (which is largely just in my head). Can I ask what instructions you have used and find most helpful for creating your doll/s?

    She is brilliant! How is it possible to give something that many joints and still make them look fluid and natural! But as fabulous as her little body is, I think her face is my favorite part Well done. I hope you show us how she looks in resin. And I know most of these doll making projects are personal, but you should consider selling her in resin. I know I would like one.

    Wow!! I can't tell you how wonderful it is to read such positive and encouraging comments!
    Thank you so much everyone!

    ceejay, yes indeed, she has a joint in her waist. It helps her to sit upright. At some point, I'm hoping to make a little video showing the joints in action.

    DJWard, that's a good question! Mmm, there are many many online resources that have been invaluable. I would recommend the forum The Joint which is specifically a ball-jointed doll-making community. Also, more recently, Artist Allison Mecleary started a website documenting how she made a porcelain ball-jointed doll: Woodland Earth Studios.

    Ella, it would be so great to sell some resin casts - as I hope to be able to purchase a small kiln one day. I'm not certain yet, but I've been hoping that I can have her professionally cast at some point. But, it may be that I have to cast at home to begin with.

    Oh, one more thing... I don't want to get ahead of myself... But,... if anyone here is also a Facebooker and would like to follow my progress over there, I have created a page for my dolls. Click the little button below! Your support would be very much appreciated!

    Hopefully more updates to follow here as well, shortly...
    Thank you again!
