Material to sculpt with (Resin or Polymer clay)
Standard Resin Doll: Strong Material - can last a lifetime. This material is hand sculpted and baked during production. Once hardened, we hand paint the molded doll. Very fine detail is seen in resin. Our Resin dolls are made faster then polymer clay, so if you need the doll to be received less than 2 weeks, resin is the only material to choose. When wanting duplicate copies of your doll, you must use resin as we can remold exact copies..
Polymer upgrade: No paint used. Not as strong as resin. What this means is all the colors in your doll are actually the material at the final product. The white teeth would be white clay. Brown hair is brown clay. Due to the complexity in sculpting in this forum, we require that all orders selected in polymer clay are ordered with a minumum of 2-3 or more weeks timeline. If you are considering duplicate copies of the pieces (more than one of the same) we recommend using our resin.

Free Proofing custom bobblehead dolls
We proudly offer FREE proofs in the different stages during the creation of your hand sculpted bobblehead doll (proofing requires a selected timeline of 2-3 weeks or longer. If less time is selected,we will provide interanl proofing only).
You will receive via email, photos of the progress of the bobblehead doll creation. We supply head proofs for approval and body proofs when choosing a full head to toe custom doll. Each step will be approved or modified. If a change is requested, we will amend the doll and provide a revised proof for approval. Once the proof is approved, we will proceed to the next step. Keep in mind, once approved we cannot move backwards in our process. If your time line is less than 2-3 weeks, we will create your doll and send it with no proofs.
Premade dolls vary in size but all are approx. 7" tall. On the order form, you can choose to make the dolls 9 or 12 inches.
Important About Image upload
The First primary photo is used for the sculpting only.
- Please limit the size of photos uploaded to less than 1 MB.
- If our system fails, simply check the upload photos later and continue the checkout, once complete you can email the photos with your order number.
EX. If you want the person to smile, the photo must dipict them smiling. Once we present the sculpt of the person from the primary photo, we will not accept additional photos to make changes. We will make amendments within the scope of the primary photo only. Requesting a new photo after the sculpt will result in additional charge (resculpting is necessary). Hair below the shoulders will result in less bobble action and is not recommended.
During the checkout, our site will allow you to select the time you want the doll received in.
