      This question comes through email by Linda:

      Hello,

      Im wondering if you can help me?  I want to make a doll in resin but I cant start
      sculpting until I know how to cast it in resin. I have watched
      tutorials with people making different molds. But the doll Im
      going to make is hollow and I have yet to find a tutorial with
      people making tube molds ^^;;…….like this:

      Linda,

      So that Im clear here:

      Youre going to sculpt a doll face/head with the tube being the center of the sculpture.  You then want to make a mold of that sculpture from which to make more resin doll heads.

      Ah, no, the tubes are the legs, arms and torso. 🙂

       Yeah, Im going to make the doll in clay and then make a silicone mold of all the doll parts. Then cast them in resin.
