They are “ball-jointed dolls”, handmade art dolls made of polyurethane resin. They are articulated and can be customized, so every doll can be unique. They are not toys for children.
I have comparisons in the gallery but since dolls are handmade each batch can be slightly different in colour (and my casting company is not very consistent with their own colours so their tones usually changes every year a bit). I can’t guarantee an exact match with other companies but I try that LR normal has a similar colour to most standard normal resins (Luts, IOS, Switch…)
Depends of the head, each one is slightly different in size, some looks better in 60cm bodies and other in 65cm bodies. I try to make them to fit in a wide variety of different bodies so you can chose the style you prefer for them. Please refer to each doll page to see sample pictures of the doll head with different bodies.
No, and I don’t have plans to make bodies for the 1/3 dolls since the production and shipping cost would be too high, and I’m not a big company.
I’m working on it! I have plans to release my first 1/4 doll head in 2018.
I can’t teach you how to make a doll, but there are a lot of tutorials in internet that will help you. My only advice is that you try with different kind of clays until you find the one that is more comfortable to you, that is very important since every person works differently. There are air drying clays like Ladoll or premier; baking clays like Super Sculpey or Living doll; and epoxies like Aves sculpt, milliput and others. If you have no experience in sculpting I would chose Ladoll for the beginning, it is easy to use, cheap, and you can modify it quickly.
I wrote a review about the casting companies I’ve worked with here.
Understand that this is a personal opinion, and my experience can be different from others. I would say that for small orders (10 units) Haru casting is a good options since you can order less units and in different colours; For small-medium orders (20 units) Fdoll is my personal choice (good communication, reasonable production times and fair prices); and if you are a professional company and make full dolls in medium-big quantities (30~50 units is their minimum), probably Weiju toys is your best option because they send you prototypes and lot of pictures before to place the big order.
