Auburn by ladymeow Auburn by ladymeow
One of my little porcelain dolls. I'm working on bigger dolls now and it really is a lot of fun. porcelain is a lot different then polymer clay and I'm still enjoying it.

Do you sculpt the porcelain?

Yes and no. The porcelain is slip cast from plaster molds but what comes out of the molds is really rough and the face is just a generic face shape so I have to sculpt in the facial details.

That's strange. I was under the impression that if you did it right, you could just pour the molds and pull out a near-complete product.

It can work that way if you have a really nice set of molds, particularly if you're dealing with rubber/silicone molds and casting in resin, but generally when it comes to porcelain dolls that's not the case. I've worked on doll heads from professionally made molds before and the heads still needed to be cleaned before they can be fired.
I also intentionally kept minimal detail on the face I used for these molds since I wanted each doll to have a somewhat unique face.

I've never casted, but I intend to take a course next semester. I'm really excited to learn about casting and mold making in a situation guided by a professor.

That sounds great! Learning first hand with the help of someone experienced is often the best way to get started.

Of course, sometimes they're so set in their process, they won't be budged into letting you try something that might work better.
