A customer can pick any likeness to be turned into a doll. It is critical, to begin with, a clear image that is as large and sharp as possible. It will make the artist's work on the doll with the head easier.

2.   Transfering to mold

This image is transferred to a mold by the artist. The artist will create a 3D rendering of the head and face using digital programming or sculpture. Typically, it begins as a clay mold. The artist will then work the clay with care and skill to precisely reproduce the client's image.

3.   Proof checking
