The Process of Making a Bobblehead

Step 1: Photo Submission

Getting started is easy! To create your personalized bobblehead, you'll need to provide us with clear and high-resolution photos of the subject. Our artisans will use these photos as a reference to capture every feature and nuance.

When submitting your photos, it's important to include images from different angles to ensure accurate representation. We recommend including front, side, and three-quarter view photos for the best results.

Step 2: Sculpting

Once we have received your photos, our skilled sculptors will begin the meticulous process of sculpting the bobblehead. They will carefully handcraft the clay model, ensuring that every detail, from facial expressions to body postures, is accurately captured.

We understand the importance of likeness, and we strive to create a bobblehead that truly resembles the subject. Our sculptors have years of experience and a keen eye for detail, guaranteeing a lifelike representation.

Step 3: Feedback and Approval

After the initial sculpting process, we will provide you with photos of the clay model for your feedback and approval. We want to ensure that you are satisfied with the progress and have the opportunity to make any necessary adjustments or modifications.

Your feedback is vital during this stage, as it allows us to refine the sculpting to match your expectations. We welcome any suggestions or requests and will work closely with you to achieve the desired outcome.

Step 4: Painting and Finishing

Once we have received your approval, our artists will meticulously hand-paint your bobblehead using the finest acrylic paints. They will pay close attention to every detail, ensuring accurate color representation and adding depth and dimension to the final product.

After the painting process, our artisans will carefully apply a protective coating to enhance the durability and longevity of your bobblehead. This final touch ensures that your custom creation will withstand the test of time.

Step 5: Packaging and Delivery

Once your bobblehead has undergone the final quality check, it will be carefully packaged to protect it during transit. We take great care in ensuring that your custom creation arrives in pristine condition.
