.This is a kit from Dana Burton. She painted the face, I dressed her with the direction and materials from her kit. I used A chest that I purchased from Amazon after @grazhina found one Amazon. http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/forum/?app=forums&module=forums&controller=topic&id=42869#comment-683701
Porcelain doll blanks available
I have a few porcelain castings I can offer this morning. I’m going to the post office this afternoon so these could be shipped out today. Private message me for details.
Unpainted, unassembled porcelain bisque dolls are the most economical way to add beautiful porcelain dolls of artist quality to your dollhouse scenes. Paint them with acrylics yourself. Costume them in good quality cotton or silks, add a viscose fiber hairdo and you have a creation and family heirloom you can be very proud of. There are links, tutorials, patterns etc. available online.
My dolls are cast by me in high quality French Bisque colored porcelain slip which is formulated specifically for doll quality. I take great care in cleaning the greenware for a quality piece, firing them once in my kiln at what is known as a soft fire temperature then I go through the process of cleaning them again and kiln fire one more time to bisque temperature,over 2000 degrees. They are then polished, carefully packaged and sent to you quickly.
This is Maisy, an elderly woman who could be cast in the role of anything from Mrs. Claus to flower seller or sophisticated shopper. She has a very sweet, kindly face. I can offer choice of shoes, from work boot suitable for gardening or the Edwardian strappy heel, or a Georgian style heel. Her hands are cast from a really neat elderly hands mold. I can also offer a white gloved arm if you prefer.
Hallie is my other casting available, she is a gorgeous doll and quite easy to paint. I can also offer her with the arms shown here, a different hand shape or the beautiful white porcelain gloved arm.
If you need the visual of what these dolls look like painted, check the mold makers website Cynthia Howe Miniatures.
Thanks for looking and do let me know if there’s anything you’re looking for porcelain doll wise, I’d love to help.
