08 Joint Design Nº 41

Even though these photos are not to the same scale, they are notes to me that I want to change the size of the hip ball from 66mm to 75mm. Click on any image to enlarge it.

I finally decided that the 66mm hip ball was too small for my doll.

Since I do not have any spherical objects that are 75mm in diameter, I am thinking that I might use the same technique that Ryo Yoshida uses to make balls for joints. Instead of using a styrofoam ball as a core for the new ball, I will use the 66mm carving wax ball, and cover it with some Roma plastilina, rolled out to about 4mm or 5mm. Then I will make a new plaster mold of that ball, and cast it in carving wax. It will not hurt to have many different sizes of ball joint molds.
