Hello, UPDATE: ALL MAGAZINES HAVE FOUND A NEW HOME. I have so many old back issues of Nutshell[...]
Please have a look around.
Thanks for stopping by. If you are looking for beautifully painted miniature dolls then you have come to the right place. This site is packed full of pages of dolls, doll kits, molds, free classes to help beginners and seasoned doll artists as well.
I have been sculpting & creating original miniature porcelain dolls for over 27 years! All dolls featured are 1/12th scale dollhouse dolls. They are sculpted of porcelain. I use my own original molds as well as molds from other fine artists. Whether you’re interested in fabulous finished dressed dolls, or kits to dress yourself, I’m sure you’ll find just the face you’re looking for to create a cherished treasure. Please be sure to check my kits pages as I occasionally have one of a kind doll kits available. I would love if you signed up for my newsletter. Your information will not be given away and you will be the first to know about new dolls, doll kits, classes & supplies.
I offer a great selection of doll kits. You can order them painted, painted and assembled, or painted assembled, and wigged. My dolls have incredibly realistic facial features. This is achieved through the laborious task of china firing the faces a minimum of 5 times, and an average of 7 separate firings. Through my technique, I can achieve very life-like faces that look more like little people than dolls. if you are looking to create a doll that resembles someone, I can work with you to create a one of a kind sculpted figure or we can choose a face from my library of doll molds that looks the closest to the person you want to create and paint and wig the figure to resemble them. It is a much more economical way to make your little person come alive if having a one of a kind sculpture is not a possibility for you.
