How to make a custom bobblehead in just 5 steps?

There are many aspects that should be taken into your consideration when making a custom bobblehead doll. For example, you should prepare photos you need and study the photos of your subject and identify the defining features before you take clay in hand. What's more you are advised to prepare things you will need.

Here are some tools that should be prepared before making the bobbleheads, like white polymer clay, acrylic paints, artist's paintbrushes, 20-gauge wire, 24-gauge wire, epoxy glue, aluminum foil, wooden base, oven, pliers, wire cutters, photos of person to be sculpted and drill and so forth.

First of all, study your pictures and determine the defining features that depict his or her character actually. Then you should cut a piece of 20-gauge wire with wire cutters for the feet, leg, hips and so forth. You are advised to use the pliers to bend the wire to a "U" shape.

Second, use aluminum foil to wrap the lower body wire. Wrap the foil at the bottom of the legs with 24-gauge wire. Knead the polymer clay with your fingers until it is soft and pliable. Use the clay to cover the aluminum foil on the lower body and smooth it with your own fingers.

Third, drill 2 small holes into a purchased oval wooden base positioned at the same width as the wires in the feet and place the foot wires in the holes to hold the figure while sculpting. Cut a piece of 20-gauge wire for the body and push it vertically into the clay portion of the lower body. Use conditioned clay to cover it and shape the torso, neck and shoulders.

Fourth, make shoes for the bobblehead. Sculpt shoes for the custom bobbleheads with two balls of clay and remove the figure from the wooden base and insert the feet wire through each shoe. Use epoxy glue to glue the feet into the drilled holes in the wooden base. Use a craft knife and needle tool to sculpt details, like clothing, arms, hands and so forth.

Fifth, you should give the bobblehead a larger head for the body. Bake the head and body in a 250-degree oven for an hour. Remove from the oven. Paint the body as you want. Cut a double length of wire to create a spring to place on top of the neck and wrap it around a pen. Cover the ends of twisted wire with polymer clay and epoxy one end of the spring to the top of the neck. Drill the inside of the bobbleheads to hollow it out enough to ensure that the head can balance well on the spring. Use epoxy to glue the head well. Then you can get your expected DIY custom bobbleheads.
