My dolls are here from DollShe. The casting is wonderful. I’m so happy they cast her for me. It takes a lot of skill and I’m sure patience to cast resin. The result is a beautiful doll (well 10 actually) and a happy me. This is what 10 dolls still wrapped look like.
They were all bagged up in this interesting manner. One long tube with a compartment for each part.I asked for the original back which they sent. She is the grey/blue doll having been sprayed with surfacer.She has minimal damage. There is so much prep work that has to be done before a doll can be cast. I admire those artist who cast their own work. I’m just so grateful for DollShe and their reproduction center – also their quality control.
One day I would like to restore the original sculpt. This would mean removing the coating and bringing the clay back to a point where I can paint her in oils. A big job but I’d love to do it.
They also sent a doll with the pouring gates still on so . This is the doll I will send back to them for further casts.
I am creating a complete info page about my doll which will reside permanently on the Pink Grapefruit site. Hopefully this will answer most of the questions you may have. I will have this loaded in a few days and will send an update with the link so hold the questions.
Now back to my doll. I have named her Tessa and my plan is to do full sets with the first 10. All painted/blushed and dressed by me.I’m still working out the pricing details.Pricing ones work is a difficult thing but I think I’ve got a grip on it.
Now back to my doll. Oh!!!!!!! would you like to see her ?
I will post more shots here and on PG. in the next few days. There is no feeling as good as realizing a dream.I am one grateful and happy being on this fine day.
