What type of material is best for me?
When it comes to making a custom bobblehead doll, we believe
the decisions on how to make them should be provided from our clients. Being said, we offer different materials to
RESIN – When you choose resin (no additional fee), we will
create your doll in 2 basic steps. We
will hand sculpt your item out of clay and provide photo proofs (most time
lines this is available) for approval.
Once approved, we fire the clay (bake) and paint it to the
specifications of the order. On completion,
we provide another proof to show off our work and once approved, we mail the
item to you.
POLYMER CLAY – When you choose polymer clay (additional fee
applied), we will also create your doll in 2 basic steps, however very
different ones. The first type proof is
called a complexion proof. This proof we
will show you basically a lump of clay in the color of the complexion for the
doll. Once approved, we will hand sculpt
every detail into the piece using all colored clay. Polymer clay does not have paint; all the
colors are hand chiseled into the piece offering the finest detail.

Resin – Strong material, baked and hardened
Polymer – Wonderful detail, vivid color, best overall look
Resin - Some detail lost due to paint filing in spaces (like
Polymer Clay – More fragile than resin, pretty strong but if
handled a lot, the piece can break
