From the album: Porcelain bisque dolls and miniatures in 1/12 scaleI know Im weird, but I feel like theres a kinship that happens between the dolls that go through their china painting sessions together. Like the children are comforted by the adults and theyre all speaking to eachother about whats happening. Lol...that's something I would only tell my dollhouse friends and probably not my husband he thinks Im weird enough. I love how excited the little girl on the left looks One thing Ive learned about my tastes in dolls, I really like dolls who are smiling, those are my favorites, they have such a happy presence. The elf girl on the right looks aloof as usual lol. I lost the other 3rd elf girl, after examining her face there were too many flaws to send her thru the whole painting process which is so time consuming. What happened was, when I was cleaning her in the greenware stage (I use water and paintbrushes to clean), I had rested the wet paintbrush on an area of her cheek and nose for a second too long and it caused a depression. It was slight but still noticeable. Im just putting this batch in the kiln, there are more dolls here than Ive painted in the past in one session so it took awhile to get them all painted. I wont be able to open the kiln until morning, although the 018 firing will be done by 5:30pm. It gives me something to look fw to, as soon as I wake up I go down to the garage to check on them. In this batch I have a Henry Higgins doll, hes really neat, modeled by Janna Joseph after the actor Rex Harrison who played Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady and the ghost from the Ghost and Mrs Muir, one of my fave movies. He has a great wizardy nose and strong masculine face, I think could be cast in a lot of different roles from Father Christmas to a medieval sorcerer or white wigged Georgian dance partner for one of my ladies. Still learning the ropes as far as painting men, so I hope he turns out.
Hi everyone! I was just wondering if anybody out there has ever tried customizing an artist's ball-jointed mannequin into a dollhouse doll? They are pretty cheap on Amazon and come in a variety of sizes including 5.5" and 4.5". The heads are ugly, but I thought maybe they could be paper mached or sculpted over? Thoughts?
I have a half scale family from the seventies new in their original box, there is the mom, dad, son and daughter. Would be interested in swapping for ??? My mom has new in the box a 1/12 scale family, they are Concord Miniatures but look just like the Caco dolls. I also have a wooden adjustable sock loom , brand new that I know I'll never use, to trade for whatever. Message if interested thanks.
I'm just wondering if anyone has used Lil Bratz dolls in their dollhouses? I was looking online tonight, thinking about my younger cousin and all her Bratz dolls she is probably getting rid of, since she's headed to college and I thought that maybe the mini ones might work for dollhouse dolls. With all the younger friends I have, I might be able to pick up free or cheap dolls. I then wondered about repainting, since they look sort of... well, *disreputable*. Anyway, I did some searching and this was what I found: Approximately 2" (Child size? 2 feet in 1/12 scale) Itsy Bitsy Bratz For sale here: http://www.ebay.com/...=item3a794ba5c4 Approximately 4-5” (Teen/young adult? 4-5 feet in 1/12 scale.
