I am currently in the casting process, working on getting a complete form.

The process of making my own Asian-aesthetic ball-jointed doll (ABJD) has been a lot more interesting than I imagined it would be.  I began in August 2009 by sculpting 1:6 scale male and female bodies.  Next, I took molds from the pieces to cast them in resin.  I am currently working on the casting process, fighting air bubbles in the attempt at getting the best possible pieces.  Finally, I will take the pieces and string them together with elastic.  At this point, the doll is in what I call the transitional phase, where it is between being two different kinds of art. Once a face, eyes, a wig, and an outfit are added, the doll will be complete.
