Dreams to Reality
In order to make the dream of creating a Ball-Jointed Doll a reality, a studio is needed. It doesn't have to be a fancy studio. No one should let the lack of a proper studio keep them from starting a doll. This is a view of my doll studio in the basement. One end of a buffet table is being used. All you need is a small corner with a desk and a light. A few simple tools, such as a penknife, chopsticks, and popsicle sticks can be used.
This is a view of the BJD Work In Progress (WIP).
Here is a view of some other doll parts, including a tiny BJD WIP strung with rubber bands. Old newspaper helps keep the mess under control.
The wax pot, a sculpture stand, and the usual clutter.
The mold making studio includes a sturdy formica topped table, scales, and mixing bowls. Plaster, clay and coddles are also used. A 5-gallon bucket with some water in it, is used for clean-up. Never put plaster (dry/set/wet) down the drain pipes!
Every day I do some work on my doll. Some days, it doesn't seem like much, but I know that something has been done. It all adds up!
