Failed attempt in making doll head

I'm new here, and am saving up to get a BDJ myself, but at the moment I'm interested in trying to make one on my own (for the fun of it!). Alas it was a failure, but nevertheless, I feel it'll be good to share my "failure" with everyone.. heh... here goes...

My proportion drawing on paper.. okay that's pretty easy for me.

Bought foam "eggs" from Art Friend.. damned they're too big so got to shear a bit.

Finished head.. but wait the "egg" is still in there and I haven't opened the eyes.

Side profile of head; looks alright except for the seemingly distorted nose.

After slicing open the head to take out the "egg", it started to crack here and there like ancient Ayutthaya or Gupta statues, and after heavy repair works, this is how it looks like, distorted and freaky! This is when I decided to abort my head making process.

Although it's a failure this time, I'll be doing it again... when I have the time!

Not bad at all, but it's a start.

Re: Failed attempt in making doll head

Your sculpting's pretty good in the first one. Probably need to change the kind of clay you use. If i'm not wrong if the weather's too humid it might also cause the clay to warp. (Idk that's what my pottery teacher said about some kinds of clays)

Re: Failed attempt in making doll head

i tried making tinier BJDs out of la doll clay, it works pretty well! i even bought a pack of la doll premiere, but that's for my 3rd attempt at BJDs.

keep at it! you seem to have at least the basic technique down. if you're worried about warping and such, you can even try out polymer clay, that way you have time to sculpt it all you want, bake it then finetune it, since polymer clay can be baked many times over.

i've not been fully successful (meaning, i managed to make 2 very ugly dolls LOL) but i believe strongly in trying until i get it right!

sausage over in the other thread is in the midst of making his own too, i like his work so far...maybe you can watch his work in progress and everyone can learn from each other ^ ^

i'm still new to this forum, so i can't put up links to my pics, but i am pretty much the same username over at flickr, maybe you'd like to go take a looksee ^ ^

Re: Failed attempt in making doll head

Wahaha... I was away for such a long time due to various reasons and I saw so many replies.. haha... Ok I shall try harder next time! BTW, where can I get LaDoll clay? I read somewhere that a shop in Bras Basah Complex has it (in fact I've been there twice) but can't find it at all.
