BallJoint Tutorial by batchix BallJoint Tutorial by batchix
I get asked a lot how the balls on a ball-jointed doll are shaped. Here's the explanation.

I realize this is a very simplistic drawing, but it's very helpful.

Thanks I found them, another question, what kind of colors do you use?
I have used acrylics to my former dolls and as I saw its not really a good idea. Isnt there some colors that dries with a heatgun/hair dryer?

to paint the face? You can use acrylics on the resin, it won't hurt it. I use pastels and acrylics on the face-ups of the resin dolls. I don't paint my paperclay at all tho.

acrylics should be fine on super sculpey as far as I know... i've always used them. Sometimes they don't stick so you have to take some rubbing alcohol and run it over the super sculpey first.

You could try using ground up pastels. You need to spray the doll with some kind of matte sealer like Mr. Super Clear or Testor's Matte before and after you apply the pastels.
