BJD Resin Boiling Tutorial by lajvio BJD Resin Boiling Tutorial by lajvio
Hi all!!


A new tutorial is up!

Some pointers to be aware of!!

:pointr: Be careful not to burn your self on the boiling water

:pointr: Only use white or beige towels to let the parts cool of on. The resin will stain very easily when it's soft.

:pointr: Be careful handling the resin when it's hot. It gets soft and will easily scratch of get dents.

:pointr: Have good ventilation, since the resin will start to smell a bit when you are warming it up.

:pointr: How long you boil the parts depends on the parts thickness. I had them in the water between 30 seconds to 3 minutes. On the bigger parts I had them in the water till they started to smell, I then knew they had got a nice boil.


I really hope you will learn something from this :)
If you still have questions, feel free to ask, after checking out my FAQ please :heart:



And thank you all for the love you have been giving me this week! It have been amazing! :huggle:

You can try it. Just be very careful when you bent the feet, and you have to make sure the foot is soft all way through. If you don't like the end result, just boil it again and it will o back o the original pose :) let me know how it went! :D

Question, should you take any precautions here such as wearing a mask or never using that pot again. In all, will the resin become toxic as it boils?
Reply

lajvio Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Yes, the resin can become toxic. Resin is toxic, that is why should use protection when you work with it, such as sanding and and boiling as well.

hi,

im a little worried about this technique. i was wondering, if this will fix bump marks too? 

for some reason, stranges little holes began forming on my boy's chin and its been really bothering me, also my bf dropped his head and there is a bump mark on his nose. so i was wondering , if i boil his head, will the strange little holes and bump mark disappear?

thank you so much for your time,
sachiko onishi <3

Hi again ^^ 

Just put the head out, and let is cold down on a towel yes. 

Yes, Resin is poisonous, but I just give my pots I use a real good clean and use them for other things after that. Just be careful and clean the utilities good and you should be ok :)

Could this be used to make minor adjustments to the face, like turning up their nose or narrowing their lips?

Change the nose, I think you can do that. Just be careful. 
Narrow the lips? I would suggest doing that with sandpaper.

Thank you si much! I haven't tried this yet because I'm such a terrified wuss, but I have a question. . .Should I be concerned of possibly putting fingerprints into the resin while forming it or not?

lajvio Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
You have to push you finger hard in to the resin to be leaving prints in it :) But just be careful, the resin is hot! You won't be leaving prints in it if you are careful and light on the hand.

If I boil my dolls head, will I be able to reposition his nose a bit?
I really want him to have more of a tip-tilted nose. Do you think that could work or should I sand it instead?

You should be able to re-positioning the nose if you boil it yes. Just be careful :)

Ah man sorry xD It turned out great, His nose popped right on out and is in the normal position, But the resin was like one layer down to where I could peal off resin. o _o... His faceup looks a bit more powder like now too. :I Oh well, I got the outcome I wanted C:
