Here is my first experimental ball jointed doll.
Elastic Waistband stuff
The body and head are hollow (pinch pot style) then drilled into. The head holds a large wad of epoxy which also holds the string firmly in place.
The epoxy secures the end pieces (arms.. tentacles?) and the string is run from arm to arm, and head down to feet.
Things I learned:
Some other type of elastic would be better, and something to really pinch and hold it while i puttied the end would be awesome (like plier clamps)
This project was a success in that it was completed and I learned a lot from it.
If anyone has advice… I would really like the help. Thanks.
