making my own doll

i know that Sausage has posted a similar thread, but it was more about his own doll making process, so i started my own one.

so...(don't mind the ugly pictures)




at first super round o.o and er ugly.





then extended the chin. and add the mouth. but still looks weird.

that's the pictures so far. my computer is lagging so i can't upload the rest of the images...

Re: making my own doll

What material is that? It looks like paper clay, if it is, got to be careful when jointing as it cracks and crumbles very easily.

Re: making my own doll

it is paper clay. and it really crumbles very easily. i am going to use something else to coat it when i finish the whole body. i don't what that material is called in english. it's used for joining cement cracks lol.

cian added 27 Minutes and 53 Seconds later...

(sorry the picture above can't be shown, so use the link to see, if you want.)

drew on the eyes to know where to cut. after that i saw-ed the head open and dug out all the styroform. then filed the excess clay at the eyes away.





this is more or less what he looks like now. but the left side of his face was reshaped a bit.



the eyes i did myself. painted them. the red ones nicer. can't figure out how to colour the other ones so just plain black.

upload more pictures when i have more progress.

Re: making my own doll

Good progress so far, but I think you should try sealing it and making a casting out of stronger material, because in my experience, paper clay doesn't last long at all. I only use it for filling large unimportant areas.

In Yoshida's book he made his own eyes using polymer clay and those reflective-backed eyes they sell in art shops. The iris was made with some kind of brush bristles. They were really nice.

Re: making my own doll

so far the paper clay is holding...i want to finish up all the parts first before using something else to reinforce it. cos i want to make sure they all fit together.

Re: making my own doll

Typical>> thanks i really hope i will be able to finish it. *cross my fingers and hope i will not give up half way due to crumbling clay

Sausage>>i was wrong in saying the clay holds up. today as i was making the lower arms, the right one totally crumbled and almost became NOTHING. added more clay to it, hope that after it dries, i can file it to a nicer shape. it is currently a mess. lol.

and just wondering, where can i get small(say, no bigger than 3cm) s-shaped hooks?

Re: making my own doll

It won't.. I learnt that the hard way too.
We should be using stone clay, not paper clay.

Luckily, Daiso sells it!
Look for the clay with a stag beetle on the wrapping. I think what you're using, if it's from Daiso, is the one with the snub-nosed dog on the wrapping, right?

Re: making my own doll

i bought the clay from popular, cos it's closer to my house, and i am sort of lazy to go to daiso just for clay then. hmm, i will go there and see.

updates

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_lSULzxu7Is...h/23112008.jpg
this is only his left arm, i am still having problems with his right one.(once again, the picture refused to be shown, so use the link)





upper torso...this picture was taken a few days ago. right now there's more clay on it lol.



trying the eyes, without flash



eyes, with flash.

still have some photos of him with the black eyes, but never upload. and i bought small (like 23mm) s-shaped hooks from daiso today. it's to be used in the hands and feet...the 30mm hook to be used in the head. right now still working on the upper body only. the lower body is still just styroform blocks.

and to Sausage>>where did you find the stone clay? which daiso? i went to IMM today and didn't see the stone clay. just the one with the dog and some other soft clay.

the hands(still trying to make it). hands are kind of difficult to do, because they are kind of small, and more fragile.

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_lSULzxu7Is...h/09122008.jpg

this is more or less what i have done, i guess.

seriously sorry that i am just using links from blogger-.- yeah, cos i am sort of lazy.

Re: making my own doll

Looks good but I think the proportions can be improved further. The legs look like cylinders now.. might want to add some tapering towards the knees and ankles.

the ankles that part haven't put in the clay. it's just styroform o.o cos i sort of don't have enough clay right now. the upper legs too. lack of clay. i am just doing the hands first. so i can figure out how to join them properly, and do maybe a better job at the legs. cos i want the doll to stand. haha. so that's why.
