In this sculpting class, we will learn to sculpt a darling, ten inch, child-like ball-jointed doll from ProSculpt polymer clay. A BJD is a posable, interactive doll with special joints that give the doll movement. We will sculpt each piece one at a time, and also give special attention to how to sculpt a cute, young face. We will learn about ball-joints and how they work, and how to easily incorporate them into your sculpting process. We will then show you how to sand and prepare each piece, blush the doll for realism. Finally, we will string her together and show how to pose her. Ball-jointed dolls are incredibly popular. Once you understand the basics of their construction, you will be able to add ball joints easily to your sculpting projects.
