The magic of Lidia Snul, Russian BJD Artist (Part 2) In the second part of our interview with Lidia Snul, Lidia tells us about her plans to create an older BJD, maybe a boy BJD, and the “birth” of Ophelia and Croby. BJDmagazine: Do you think of creating dolls with older features? Lidia: Yes, I have a project “Ice Queen” – an older woman, well preserved in a cool and dry place. Right now she is in the stage of a master-model, I’ve been planning to make molds of her for a long time, but I have many other orders to work on. This is my Mermaid. BJDmagazine: Do you make the wigs and the eyes of your dolls? Lidia: Yes, I make the wigs. BJDmagazine: You have designed only females. Lidia: I have a mold of a young guy. My latest project. BJDmagazine: Please tell us more about the birth of Kroby and Ophelia. Lidia: Oh well, what can I say… First about Kroby. As for Ophelia – she just somehow happened… I didn’t know what she was going to be like until I put in the eyes. My working desk on a day when I am teaching a BJD-making class. Lidia: Constantly.

Water bucket – check, sanding sponges – check, an assortment of various tools – also check. Still, I sit there, eyeing the parts through squinted eyes like they are my mortal enemies, challenging them to either get the hell out of my sight or clean themselves for once. I catch myself sighing with resignation for the fourth time as I anticipate the mind-numbing repetitiveness and inevitable length of the upcoming cleaning session, pick up a tiny hand and place it in the hot water. I procrastinate some more by watching a stream of air-bubbles emerge from it as sinks and think of how I always start with a hand for some reason. What a creature of habit. This is the one stage of the doll-making process I really don’t ever look forward to. Tomorrow I will, no doubt regret this self-indulgence and will have to play catch up, but tomorrow is tomorrow. Polymer Clay Sculpting Tips and Tutorials 1: Keep a wet washcloth or wet wipes (baby wipes) on hand to keep you hands clean while sculpting. Any little piece of dirt of pet hair your hands pick up will stick to your sculpt. 2: Get a lazy susan, it’s a simple thing but being able to turn your sculpts easily is really helpful. I found a great 14″ diameter bamboo one for $10, so not a big investment. 3: Mirrors are your friend. A great way to tell if you have something lopsided is to look at it reversed in a mirror, it really brings out any problems. 4: Smooth out your polymer clay using isopropyl alcohol. 90% will smooth more aggressively than 70%. 5: Get a pasta machine.
