WIP Gamma BJD 05 by batchix WIP Gamma BJD 05 by batchix
here he is so far!


When I sculpt I go: sand, carve, patch, then repeat. Here he's past his second sanding. Still got more repairs to go, especially since I realized that his tummy was off center. X3;;

yay for lumpy potato head.

also, for those just joining us.. he started out looking like this: [link]


will move this when project is complete, thanks!

I have videos up on youtube of me working, would that work? Sometimes seeing someone do something is an easier way to learn! [link]

you can always send me a note here or email me at batchix at yahoo :3

Part of learning is messing up. Some of the best work I've done came about because I messed something up and had to improvise. Don't be afraid of messing up. My rule is "Is this going to burn the house down?" "No." "is this going to potentially maim me?" "No." "Good enough, let's go."

Such a wonderful display of detail. Every time I try to add detail I dent the body too much.

what kind of clay are you using?

Hakadirune Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
white Air dry clay.
I also tried looking up quicker drying methods for it. But to no prevail.

Like Das or La Doll? Is it a stone clay or a paperclay? If it's a paperclay I'd recommend letting it dry and then using sand paper and speedball lino cutter to cut back in and make the detail. That's how I do the details on my dolls. If it's stone clay then... I'm not sure. It's usually too hard to sand.

I am not sure myself. It is left over air dry clay from school supplies.
When I started using the hair dryer to help the drying pace. it started cracking.
Its like a oily texture with this clay

try sanding it after it's dry maybe? I'm not sure... i use mostly paperclay or polymer clays or apoxie sculpt.

I heard polymer is nifty. But I know very little bout it. Is it the type that dries like hard plastic? :o
Reply
:iconbatchix:
batchix Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2012  Professional Artist
No, it's hard, but not necessarily like plastic... it still feels a bit like a clay. You might try Super Sculpey sometime. Or Fimo. Fimo comes in small blocks so it's a little less of a commitment to buy. :3

Resin or La Doll clay for making this doll???

at this point he was paperclay, eventually I cast him in resin. :3 THere's other pictures of the finished doll in my gallery.

Usually for Japanese BJD, they use a La Doll clay (In YOSHIDA STYLE book n AIMI doll) :P

May I ask, is the clay used as a base for the resin to be brushed upon or is it used as a mould? That's where I'm getting confused!!

Yeah, it's hard to get here tho. I might try it sometime, but for casting purposes I prefer paperclay because it's easy to get and easy to sand. :3

Thankyouuuuu so much for your help. Not very many artists like to share their secrets. perhaps now i can start my journey on creating dolls. I thought about making BJDs. Does Paperclay hold up to the tension in the string & movement?

batchix Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2009  Professional Artist
Paperclay is good for a prototype you intend to cast. It won't hold up if you intend to play with your doll at all. You can get a harder type of paper clay to make the inner cores with if you want to make a doll out of paperclay, but it's nearly impossible to sand. XD

[link] you can see the entire process of me making this doll here.

If you want to make a doll without casting it, I suggest using either apoxy sculpt or super sculpey to make the doll. it's still not as strong and sturdy as resin but it's stronger than the paperclay. :3

He's looking fab, but remember WIP belong in scraps. Just FYI before a mod comes and moves them.

I left notes on all of them that they'll be moved when I get done with the project... and so far no one's moved them(I did that with Nan Sook and all her WIPs are in the scraps now). I had it happen before I put the note on there, but not after. what I'll probably do is move the rest to scraps every time I update.
