So i spent some time trying to figure out how to make dissolvable bones for apoxie sculpt jointed dolls because if you are like me and have actually tried to drill into a solid piece you know its really difficult lol and i ended up hurting myself rather than making any progress at all. Anyway… I basically used some wire (though the wire isn’t absolutely necessary in fact if you can by pass the wire bit it will be more successful cause you can just melt the air dry clay)->
and put some cheap air dry clay on it like so (i used la doll because thats all i had. Next time however i will be using crayola air dry clay) ->
After sculpting with clay that isn’t water soluble you can soak the piece in water and melt out the “bone” for a hollow sculpt. Of course this wont work when your doll is made out of air dry clay because it will melt along with the core. This can also be done with hot glue sticks. I think the hot glue method (sculpting over hot glue then melting it out) will work for air dry clay but then its really messy and the air dry clay might not stick to the hot glue while sculpting apoxie sculpt does though.
