I would love to make one of them! I should tell me dad to make me one, since he won't let me buy one LOL
That would be a fun family project!

why not use crumpled aluminum foil for the inner part that gets taken out later?  it would be ok in the oven and then if you still leave a hole to pull it out by, it could be easier to remove than the foam.

or if that would be too lumpy, maybe cover it with... now here is where i get confused.  paper? papier mach -- can that go in the oven after it is totally dry?  or air-dry clay in a thin layer, and then polymer clay over that?  just ideas, more knowledgeable ones will have a better input, i'm sure.

Actually, foam is really really easy to remove if used as a core for sculpting your BJD. Just drop a couple of drops of nail polish remover into the open cavity and onto the foam and it will dissolve whereas the foil will leave little pieces imbedded and baked into the inside of your doll.

I was just doing a google search on casting molds for bjd's and came across this site... well started reading and had to comment ... I've just finished the sculpting part of my second bjd doll ... I used the air dry paperclay to make her and has taken me about 5 months on and off. ... But I did in the beginning search out info about what was the best to make her out of either polymer or air dry paperclay... I chose the paper clay as it's so strong... I don't know how many times I bounced limbs off the floor with no ill effects LOL... It also can be baked in the oven for those like myself that just don't have patience enough to wait while it dries naturally LOL

But if you are going to use polymers you can use cloth limbs stuffed with polyfil as your core...once baked you can then remove the stuffing and then the fabric... if that doesn't appeal then you can use brass piping which you wouldn't need to remove... hope I've not sounded the know all ... just had to share what I've learned so far Shocked)) ... can't wait to see some pics when you girls get going !!!
