So many things happened…

Hi everyone!

I was not posting for a long time again 😦 Have to do something about it.. So many things happened to me in these months, so much to tell and sooo little time with all the work I’ve been through.

Soon I will post about two exhibitions and competitions I took part with my dolls. It was great! So, stay tuned 😉 I will try not to be out for weeks again:)

But first, I would like to share some work in progress photos. As I’ve mentioned already, these almost two months I was working on two dolls.


I was really happy how the faces turned out 🙂

I think I am getting better and better at it 😉

Happy 8.March Day!

Today is the International Women’s Day! As I come from Russia, it is a Big Day for all Russian girls, women, mamas and grandmothers 🙂 All boys, men, boyfriends, husbands and grandfathers are trying especially hard on that day to please us 🙂

It is kind of celebrating the women,but also the spring, the end of winter and awaiting of all nice things the warm weather brings us.

Today, the nature met me with this picture:

  
BUT… after couple of hours the nature remembered obviously that it IS actually a spring day and brought us this…!

  

So, I wish everybody a happy spring day and lots of happy moments on this day for us – GIRLS of all ages!

Meanwhile, I’ll go back to work on my happy moment of the day-China painting of my two new dolls 🙂

   
   

Working on new porcelain dolls

Hello!

Finally after many weeks of almost non-stopping winter illnesses, that my son kept bringing from the nursery, I’ve started working on new dolls!

This is a porcelain pouring stage:

After few days of conditioning the porcelain slip, pouring it into gips forms, being frustrated because of the pouring lines on the fresh doll parts, waiting 8 hours for the gips forms to be dry again, and pouring again.. , and carefully getting those parts out of the forms, and cutting the holes for the later stringing of the doll, and constantly washing the pouring jugs and stirring sticks and trying to keep the chaos in our kitchen in some borders…for approximately a week…I finely got about enough parts for (hopefully) three dolls!

Oh, and my back… Well, I am really sorry! I promise to buy you a voucher for a massage… 😉

After couple of days of drying the castings, I soft-fired them and proceeded to the wet cleaning stage.

 

The stage will last for some time.. 😉 But, I hope to update the information soon 🙂

In the meantime – back to the greenware cleaning!

Ooak Repaint Monster High Operetta Doll is now on Etsy

Ok, my girl did not have success on ebay, so, I’ve decided to give her a home (hopefully only for a short time 😉 on my Etsy Shop.

She is really a beauty and I hope she will find a new home soon!

OOAK Monster High Operetta Repaint

Hello,

I’ve decided to put on ebay tonight one of my last Monster High Repaints, made by me before my long time-out from ReeshDollDesign almost two years ago.

It is repaint of MH Operetta. I like her very much. I think the doll has a character.

I hope to make many new repaints of dolls soon. I missed it in my life somehow..

For the time being.. here is the link to the ebay for Operetta:

Meet my Red Riding Hood

Hello!

I am happy to present my second porcelain ball-jointed doll – Red Riding Hood.

I am very happy with how she came out. She is my second doll of five with glass eyes edition.

I had an idea to make a Red Riding Hood Doll about a week before Halloween. I had an image in my head of her, standing in the forest not far from our haus and my little son should have worn a wolf mask, sitting next to the doll on the photo. It was a vision and a plan, BUT…too little time to accomplish. The mask was made at first, then it came to the clothes for the doll – and it took a waaaay too long to finish it. Soo.. many weeks after Halloween, actually after New Year Party of 2016, I AM happy to present my version of Red Riding Hood to you. 🙂

My first Porcelain Ball-Jointed Doll Maria

Hello,

I can’t wait to show my first Full-Set Porcelain Ball-Jointed Doll, completely hand-crafted by me!

DSC_0362 copy

Her Mold Name is Maria. There is going to be only 10 dolls with this mold, 5 dolls with painted eyes and 5 dolls with glass eyes. So, the edition is extremely limited.

This doll is the first of five dolls with painted eyes edition.

DSC_0226 copy copyDSC_0234 copyDSC_0142 copyDSC_0188 copyDSC_0289 copyDSC_0258 copy

Her height is 14,37” (36,5 cm). She is made from high quality bisque porcelain. Face painting and body blushing are made with several layers of china paints. China paint will never fade, it is scratch resistant.The joints are lined with high quality leather. The doll is assembled with hooks, swivels, high quality steel springs and dll tension rubber. I went for combining steel springs and rubber in my dolls, as I find it suitable for my dolls. I’ve tried to use only steel springs, but I didn’t like the tension and the range of the movement of the joints. The rubber, in my opinion, gives a possibility of more soft and human-like movements of the joints. But it is probably not a final solution, I am still experimenting.  

The doll has a removable natural mohair wig on the magnetic silicon cap.

This is a Full Set Doll. It means she will come with everything you see on the photos: corset, panties, stockings, slippers, ball rock, jacket, earrings, bead necklace, armband and hairband – everything is hand-crafted by me with lots of love to details.

Included also a hand-made doll box, doll stand, certificate and doll booklet.

I hope you will like my first dream doll, as I do.

For those of you, who would like to give Maria a new loving home, she is on the ebay:
