more will be added

starter kits available on etsy! [link]

If you buy any of the starter kits and still have questions, please note me and please show me what you do with your doll. I'd like to post links on here ^_^

I didn't cover painting or sculpting. There are plenty of resources out there to find the info you're looking for

forgive any and all typos

*Magweno and my friend *Eviecats have poseable art doll tutorials that you can reference. I recommend reading them both. Use these basic tutorials to get your head start. Whatever is not covered in either tutorial it is up to you to experiment. My advice to you is to pour over every tutorial you can get your hands on. Even if it doesn't seem relevant. There will usually be at least one method or material you discover by looking at seemingly irrelevant sources.

Nice tutorial! Just one question, why not use a brush on silicone rubber instead of a pour one? It always seems that when people make pour molds there is always so much rubber that is wasted for nothing more than as a space buffer. I prefer using a brush on silicone since the layers don't have to be so thick and I can use plaster(which is much cheaper!) to keep the silicone rigid after the original has been removed. I use Rebound 25 since it has very high tactile strength and is not prone to tearing as the OOMOO line is when brushed.

You make beautiful dolls by the way.

This is for beginners. That's why no brush on molds.

Aha, I see why, I always got the impression brush-on molds were easier, since you have more control over the silicone, but that's just me I guess. It' a great tutorial nonetheless :)

Thank you so much for this! I've always wanted to try my hand at this and now you've explained it, and made it sound really easy!
