I’m clearing off my work table to make room for dollhouse Christmas projects I’ve got going. I have a few offerings, all unassembled, some unpainted, some carefully china painted. Assembly instructions will be included. Assembly is done with simple materials like pipe cleaners, cotton balls, super glue and tacky glue. These make a really fun do-it-yourself project and it’s an affordable way to add beautiful dolls to your dollhouse.  These are porcelain dolls in 1:12 scale, cast, cleaned and fired, some are painted, by me. The china painted dolls undergo a meticulous process of 5 to 7 trips thru the kiln at temperatures that are high enough to set the paint permanently. Unpainted dolls can be painted with acrylics, chalks and even powders from your own makeup. Any questions, just ask. Scroll down because I’m going to put these in separate posts just to keep the descriptions orderly. 

 

First offering is a beautiful doll that is unpainted, porcelain bisque. She is known as Milady and her original sculpt was created by a well known doll artist named Paulette Stinson. Shown are two examples from the artist of a costumed Milady and the bisque I’m offering today. She would make a beautiful bride, she’s smiling and has darling dimples. I can offer her with your choice of two different style of arms, long white porcelain gloved arms, or plain hands. Both sets of arms are well formed to hold an item in the hands, like a book or bridal bouquet. I also have two different choices for shoes, one, a petite heeled shoe and the other a Georgian heel. Either could be painted or covered over with silk ribbon if desired. She is customized in her greenware stage, I put her on a nice Cynthia Howe designed long torso.

China painted, unassembled. This is a doll that could be Mrs. Claus, maid, Grandma, peddler woman, fairy Godmother. only limited by your imagination. Final photo shows how I dressed mine. 

This doll is customized, her head was attached in the greenware stage to a body that (in my opinion) makes her easier to costume than the original Mrs Claus body. Original sculpt by Parker Levi.

This doll is unpainted, unassembled bisque porcelain. She can be painted with acrylics and chalks or powders from your own makeup. 

She is technically designed to be a sleeping fairy, but she can also be a sleeping lady, Mother with babe, etc. 

Original sculpt by Joyce Wolf.

I have two unpainted Fairy Girl dolls. These also make cute Christmas elves. 

On one of them (left) her left ear goes straight back but is still pointed. That side could be covered with hair if desired but she is slightly discounted because of that. 

The legs and arms shown are all that I have available for this doll. She could only sit with the bare feet. With the taller legs she can stand of course. 

Original sculpt by Parker Levi, known as Fairy Girl

I also have a crawling toddler available. Beautifully china painted, unassembled. It’s not letting me load a picture so pm me if interested and I can send a photo. 

She is known as Traci, original sculpt by Parker Levi. I have an example of her (little crawling toddler in red dress) in my porcelain doll album. 

Thats it for today!

I just wish the toddler didn't look like her momma had made her up for a beauty contest.

I would think you know how incredibly hard it is to paint those little faces since you have made resin ones.....would you like it if I said your faces look like drag queens ? Please apologize to Karin

I humbly apologize if I offended Karin; I have a cousin who used to inflict the child beauty contests on her little girl, and I feel so sorry for those children that that just burst out.  I wasn't trying to be insensitive. I am aware that my little horrors are not in the same league.  I thought that Karin might want to know.

    • My way to make mini pans, pots and dishes.
      By KHTRE
      Today I have made a lovely pan and pot for my dollhouse. They are made of brass and copper. Maybe someone will be interested in my method.
       
       
    • Porcelain doll blank available. June bride?
      By WyckedWood
      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
      By WyckedWood
      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.
