Joined lower and upper halves of torso using Apoxy sculpt. Started working on arms and sculpted hands and feet. Cut legs at knee and removed straws that I used for the core.

Making My 1st Ball Jointed Doll Part 3
In this part I removed the core from the doll by cutting along the sides with a Dremel. It took some time to cut but the parts separated from the core fairly easily. I also cut the torso in half to give my doll movement at the waist.

Making My 1st Ball Jointed Doll Part 1
I am trying my hand at making a ball jointed doll after being introduced to them by a friend a couple of years ago. After watching a lot of videos and a few false starts I finally found what works for me. I have been working on this project for a couple of weeks and will be posting progress photos as I go.

Interests
The Steampunk World's Fair in Piscataway NJ is this weekend May 17 - 19th and I am super excited. I can't wait to dress up and show off some of my creations. I also love the immersive feel of the event and the incredible amount of inspiration I get from seeing the work of others. I have a couple of new pieces that I've made for the event and I will be posting them soon along with photos from the world's fair. If any other deviants are going please comment below. Thanks to all as always for the comments and inspiration I get every day here on Deviant.
