Details: If you are looking at this book, it is assumed you've been browsing photos of ball-jointed dolls (BJD) online and wondering why they look so...alive? It's actually not hard! One major contributor to the effect is the resin they are made of--half the job done. The other half is you and your tools. The process is called "face-up," like make-up, but instead of adding color to an already living face, we are adding the illusion of warmth and life to a resin sculpture. This book was written to help you get started. It begins with a good list of tools and mediums you will need to buy, accompanied by brief definitions and why they are used. Next we move on to basic color theory with a list of effects you can employ to your process. Then we dive into the work. Heck, I'll even show how to remove the doll's head and insert eyes to bring you up to speed. And there are over 100 photos and examples to help out! This book is written in the order a face-up usually happens, but this art is totally flexible, so you can mix and match effects as you see fit. I've scoured the net, asked questions, and compiled this information so you don't have to. As there is always more to learn, be on the lookout for future books covering the vast world of doll customization. If you are a total beginner in this hobby, you are in the right place!
