Molding and Casting a Ball-Jointed Unicorn Doll


In this course, you will learn all about the process of creating silicone molds and making resin castings. We will go over some of the equipment used in this process including a vacuum chamber and a pressure pot. And I’ll share with you what you definitely need, and what you probably don’t.

I’ll teach you how to prepare your doll for the molding process and also talk about things to keep in mind when you are sculpting your doll as well so it will be easier to create casting duplicates.

I’ll show you how to create silicone molds for your doll from paperboard boxes and modeling clay. I’ll show you how to create vents so the resin fills the mold properly, and lay out your doll pieces in a way that will conserve the most silicone and resin. I’ll teach you what I do to avoid air bubbles and how to get great castings.

We’ll also go over how to dye your resin for a lifelike color, and also talk about some options for painting the resin doll you create.

In our bonus class, I’ll go over the process of how to adjust a sculpted head so it can hold a magnetic cap and removable eyes. In past classes, we’ve taught you how to create a BJD with a hook in the head cap. In this bonus class, I’ll show you how it is done having your S hook meet in the doll’s neck so the head plate is easy to remove when you change out the eyes and restring your doll.

If you have been interested in learning to make castings of your dolls in resin, this is the course for you!
