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:

can this be used on bjd flat feet to make them into high heel feet??
i have a bjd but they dont have high heel feet available for the company i have so i am planning to use this method ._. 
i want to try and make them high enough to fit sd16 heels what are your thought and opinions o3o?

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?
lajvio 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. 
Thank you so much for the tips!

I'm just glad I could help :)

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,

I hope you will have luck fixing your boy!
