08 Joint Design Nº 311
Overall, the repair job was a success. The knee joint is actually better now than it was before the accident. I used drill bits to make holes in the ball, and the X-Acto knife to carve the slot. The ball joint is now about 3/8ths of an inch thick, which is much sturdier than before, when it was only about 1/8th of an inch thick. I recommend at least 1/4th of an inch thickness for the parts of a carving wax doll this size.
Once the holes and slots were drilled and carved, I restrung her. This time, I made double sure that the S-hook was attached to the ankle pin before letting go of it.
