About this course

New! Molding and Casting a Swaddle Fairy Baby DVD is now available! This 2 hour video will show you how to prepare your baby head for casting and will take you through the steps to make a two part mold.  I'll show you how to get amazing castings in beautiful clay-like colors.  It's hard to tell which is the original sculpt and which is resin with these techniques!

This new video will show you how to paint, wig, and costume your resin baby as well!  This is a great way to share your talent!  Sculpt a head once, and create many more in resin.  It takes some work to learn how, but once you get the hang of it, is very easy!  Get started today!

These videos are about Mold Making and Resin Casting.  You should already have a sculpted head ready to use.  Or read below to find instructions on sculpting the Swaddle Fairy Face.  Resin casting are also available for your reference or to finish as dolls.

November's SculptBoxes featured this sweet little swaddle fairy face, and we've made her available for you to use as a sculpting reference.  Or you can finish her up and make her into a swaddle fairy.  She comes on a stick for easy holding, and to be easily swaddled into a baby.

Want to learn to sculpt your own?  This past SculptBox is available here for a limited time, in a kit with all the things you'll need to make your own.

This resin casting comes fresh from the mold, with the flashing cleaned up, and ready to be finished by you, or used as a sculpting reference as you make your own.  The easiest way to sculpt is with a 3D model by your side.

These make great gifts!  The bonus videos will teach you how I made the exact mold I used for this casting, and will also include tips on blushing your resin casting.  Each doll has the initials of the artist, Apryl Jensen, on the back of the head.

Visit my instagram page to see some videos of these resin dolls here.

Would you like us to finish and swaddle a baby for you so she looks like the finished doll in the images?  You can order the finished dolls here.
