Feet Updated

I try to do some work on the BJD every day. Here is what the feet are looking like after some cutting away of wax around the ball joint, and some adding and modelling of wax, especially around the toes. They are slowly taking form.

I did some reading in the Yoshida Style Ball-Jointed Doll Making Guide about how he attaches the feet and hands to his dolls. According to his book, he cuts the slot in the ball joint, then he drills a hole for a wire which will attach to the terminal hook. He cuts the wire short, so it won't show, then glues it in place. An S-hook is attached to the wire which is glued in the ball joint of the wrist or the ankle. The S-hook is attached to the elastic.
