How to make molds and resin cast BJDs
Talk about a course that goes in-depth. In the past I’ve taken courses on silicone molds and casting with resin. Then whenever I went to cast my pieces I was disappointed with the results. No wonder!
Noemi in this course went through every detail and the most smart ways to have professional level silicone molds and casting the ball jointed dolls in resin.
Even though this course mentions BJDs and those the pieces she shows in the course, this is professional level instruction for anyone interested in sculpting and casting their pieces.
Wow! Just Wow!. That is what most people said after they watched Noemi Smith give the course Making a Ball Jointed Doll Character with Paperclay.
During 3 days she went into major detail on how to create a ball jointed doll in a professional way. Everything so if you want to cast your dolls later to sell you would have the best prototype to work with.
The joints were advanced and people were mesmerized by how she makes them. And how she works with paperclay was a Wow moment for most.
Noemi is coming back next year with a course on how to make molds and cast BJDs‘
