Not sure where to put this but ordered the cutest villa
I bought this villa! I've been looking at these kits for awhile and decided to get one! https://www.ebay.com/itm/253586790267 I hope it's not too hard I know the directions are in chinese... Someone on the site has a paris shop I think it was. They are such cute kits.
Porcelain doll blank available. June bride?
I have a few extras from my recent firings. This doll is called Lucinda, by mold maker Marie Wheat. Cast, cleaned, fired and polished by myself. She would stand 5.5 inches when put together with pipe cleaners and cotton wrap. I send instructions for that process or there are many online tutorials for assembling I can direct you to.
This offering is for an unassembled, unpainted, polished porcelain doll. For the do it yourself Miniaturist. Her eyes are big and I found her one of the easiest to paint, from all of the dolls I've painted so far. She can be painted with acrylics.
She comes with beautifully shaped hands (the same hands I used with my Marie Antoinette doll) that have the ablility to hold items or trays, etc. or how about making a June bride with flower bouquet?
The finished doll photo is an example of Lucinda used for advertisement, doll costume is by artist Paulette Stinson. Marie Wheat made an entire bridal pattern book just for Lucinda, called Lucinda and Toms Wedding. Very vintage book and I'm not certain of its availability.
* as a free gift included, Ill also send a half head, you can use it to practice painting or as a ghost head in mirror scene or greenwoman wall hanging etc..
Painted, partially assembled dolls available
I have a few porcelain dolls available. These particular dolls are painted by me with oil paint. I think it would be neat if they could be sold together as an instant family for your dollhouse but of course I will sell them separately.
I take a lot of care and time to assemble my dolls so that they'll stand without a doll stand. I hate doll stands. If they are balanced they will stand by themselves. With the exception of the sleeping "ballerina". I haven't added the arms because it's easier for me to costume them without the arms glued on, until the bodice is complete. You would just glue pipe cleaners into arms ( I use a combo of super glue and tacky) , let it dry and cut off after sizing the pipe cleaners to correct length. Then you could wrap with a little cotton. You could do this before costuming if you're worried about getting glue on costume.
So this is who I have available. Monique, an adult apx 5.5 inch lady, she's made from a Doreen Sinnett mold. She has pretty green eyes.
Kelly is from a Doreen Sinnett mold. She's the doll I used to make my Alice in Wonderland. Young teenager around 4 inches. She'd also be great for a little red riding hood or big sister, young maid etc.
Pearl, also Doreen Sinnett mold. She's the size for about a 5 year old. The arms that come with her are bent, could be arranged to hold a bouquet of flowers, maybe a dolly, etc. She has a melancholy expression. Maybe she just dropped her ice cream cone
Then I have a toddler from a Parker Levi mold. This is the doll they call Sean. Mine is a girl tho. She could be sleeping in a bed under the covers, or daydreaming about becoming a ballerina. If you want her to stand she'd have to be propped somehow.
Message if interested in one or all and we can negotiate price. Ready to ship.
