Today I worked on preparations for making some rough shell molds for the parts of the BJD that I'm going to do major changes to. These molds will be like back-ups. If something happens, I can always cast a replacement part from the mold, and continue from where I made the mold. I like to use a cardboard build-up when I make a rough shell mold, if at all possible. A cardboard build-up is much quicker to make than a clay build-up. I just trace around the part to be molded, with a pencil, onto the cardboard, then cut out the cardboard. I can fill-in any open places between the build-up and the part with clay or wax.
