Information about the materials we use.
Resin Bobblehead Doll: When you choose our standard resin for your custom bobblehead doll (no additional fee), we use a 2 step process. We will hand sculpt your item out of clay and provide photo proofs via email (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 of the hand paint, we will provide another proof to show off our work for approval. Once approved, we mail the item to you.
Polymer Clay Bobblehead (upgrade): When you choose the polymer clay custom bobblehead doll (additional fee applied), we will also create your doll in a 2 steps process, however very different ones. The first type proof we send to you in email form is called the complexion proof. This proof we will show you basically a lump of clay in the color that the complexion of the doll will be made out of. Once approved, we will hand sculpt every detail into the piece using all different color clay. Polymer clay does not have paint; all the colors are hand chiseled into the custom bobblehead doll offering fine detail.
Resin â€“ Strong material, baked and hardened - any one of our timelines can be used
Polymer â€“ Wonderful detail, vivid color, best overall look
Resin - Some detail lost due to paint filing in spaces (like teeth etc.)
Polymer Clay â€“ More fragile than resin, pretty strong but if handled a lot, the piece can break - requires a minimum of 2-3 weeks or more when ordered.
