We are different from 95% of sellers out there. Starting from 2008, we always to make sure to use POLYMER CLAY and 100% hand made, without using and premade mould and paint. We rely heavily on human rather than machine when are handcraft our custom bobbleheads. Every one of our sculptors have unique skills. That's why retaining experience sculptors is one of the most important ways to maintain our product's overall quality. Over the years, we have developed many incentives to make sure our sculptors will stay with us and love what they are doing. Many other sellers choose to use Resin Plastic plus machine made mould because they do not have any experienced sculptors. Using Resin Plastic and mould rely most on machines rather than human, and Resin Plastic is abut 25% cheaper than using POLYMER CLAY. By using POLYMER CLAY, it's almost impossible to make two custom bobbleheads dolls, since without mould, it all relies on human hands and experience. Resin Plastic can be used to make very complex colors, but not in case of POLYMER CLAY. POLYMER CLAY have certain colors in nature and can not be painted with complex color. This is why Resin Plastic can be easily repaint, but for POLYMER CLAY to change color, it needs to be complete redo.
We believe for our customers the final products are the most important. Resin Plastic dolls will look darker in color, compare to POLYMER CLAY dolls, which are brighter in color, smoother in touch and much better quality in details. You can tell it's completely handmade by looking at the edge and some trace of fingerprints. We believe our customers deserve a 100% custom hand made product, rather than some low quality massed produced product. We will only use Resin Plastic and paint if requested by customer and get specific permission doing so. https://www.likenessme.com/
