Sculpting BJD unnamed msd boy - test stringing by daiin Sculpting BJD unnamed msd boy - test stringing by daiin
Test strung him to see if his torso would fit together well, and if I need to make any adjustments to his hip or knee. I think he needs a very minor sanding at the crotch so he can sit with his legs together, then again...how manly would that be? ;)

Ahh, I think the best way to know how a bjd is stringed is to look at one. They're fairly differently stringed.

I don't generally give advice on making dolls (as you might have read in my FAQ). But I can give you three important advice:

1) A home made bjd is not cheaper than a bought one. More often than not, they are more expensive since you need enough clay to afford mistakes, tools, paint, brushes, sponges...the list goes on. Quite a lot of materials are used making one.
2) Do lots and lots of research. If you don't own your own bjd, you need to do even more research. A good place to start is at The Joint, a forum for doll makers.
3) Patience, patience, patience. The first tries won't turn out great, just be prepared for lots of mistakes and don't give up.

Additionally, I've been told Sculpey tends to break unless mixed with liquid Sculpey. I don't use Sculpey so I can't confirm this, but it sounds like a bit of important knowledge if you are using Sculpey. ;)

*giggles* You might want to google that one. ;) But I heard it from one of my watchers, so it's probably correct. :D

At first I wasn't really interested in this doll because of is 'too male, too sinewy' body, but you made it in a really cool way. I begin to like him now ^^
(And he has a three parts torso !!!!!!! :D )

Haha, I don't blame you. :D I'm not into guys in the first place, so I'm not much for muscles and manly bodies. I prefer bishounens. But I think that he's going to be pretty cool once he's done. :D He has a pretty mature body and he'll eventually - once he has a head - actually be a dark elf, if that sparks any interest. xD

Yes! He has! :D I've never tried that before. xD
