Marzi, I am resubmitting this initial checklist to regain some background to this thread.
Why don't we make a mold of the whole barbie? That way you can use the mold for both torso pieces and whole body pieces.
Since we need to get this project done by the 14th/15th., I want you to start making preparations now so that when the CopyFlex arrives, you will be ready to pour. Normally, I like to use Safe-D-Clay when making a two piece mold, but I think we will use fondant to save time. Do you have some extra fondant you can use? You are going to need about a pound or two.
1st Step - take the Barbie and look real close, you should see a parting line running up one side of the doll, over the head and down the other side. We are going to use this line to define the two mold halves that we are going to make.
2nd. Step - Go To - http://www.makeyourownmolds.com/how-to-make-3D-mold
. This is a good outline of the method we are going to use to make your mold. I will be changing some things for your particular situation and time requirements.
Marzi, after reviewing this post, let me know if we are good to go. Did you find the line on the doll? Do you have a general understanding of the process after looking at the web page?
I got your message that you have enough fondant.
