Purchased a replica of Sally's Face off ebay several years ago, pre-painted. It's been my motivation to get a full doll made.

She's got hair

Sally cannot go walking through Halloween Town in naught but her skin View attachment 1586876
Did you do the silicone casting or have someone do that? Also what silicone did you use and how does it compare to foam latex in terms of softness? I have made lots of puppets using foam latex. I know that the rotting is an issue if kept right it can still last a long time. I think that even silicone breaks down eventually.

I have admired your stop-motion puppets, especially your Taun-Taun w/Han.
Someone else did do the silicone casting. He said he used ecoflex 00-30 silicone. It is kind of soft to the touch,but also feels like a rubber.

Here's some test casts

Thanks for the compliments. I am really happy how Sally looks

Doing a thread color test. The lighting in the movie really plays with the shade of the thread. At times it looks black, navy blue, and almost a periwinkle.

Excellent workmanship:cool::cool:(y)(y) How do you envisage cutting the bottom of the dress to copy the same kind of distressing look of the original?
