Enchanted Doll in Italy and Estonia


Hey guys! Remember this doll when it was still unfinished? She is coming as a part of my traveling porcelain collection to my upcoming shows in Italy and Estonia this fall. Oh, and by the way, I have a show in Tallinn, Estonia one week after Italy. Surprise! Totally forgot to tell you, but it’s going to be awesome. It’s called Shocking Art of Dolls, and it will take place at Estonian Doll Art house, in the oldest building in Tallinn! I’ll post more info about it soon.

If I have any resin dolls left over from Italy, then they will be made available to buy at the Shocking Art of Dolls in Tallinn. Also, I’ve been putting the resin wait list together going back to 2010. Those of you who are on it, will be getting an email within 24 hours to inquire if you wish to remain or get taken off. This wait list will go in effect in December and production will begin in January 2013.

My production capacity is very small, only about 10-20 resin dolls a month max. I want to avoid mass-production and keep the quality and rarity of these dolls. At this point I have plans to produce resin for 1 year, and then either stop or keep going for another year or two, or many, depending on how I feel. I will evaluate the situation every 6 months.

Unfortunately, the rainy season in Vancouver had started this week and prevented me from completing as many resin dolls as I originally wanted to bring to the Pieceno Fashion doll convention. It’s new and strange for me to have to rely on external factors, such as good weather, to be able to make dolls. There is no such a thing with the porcelain doll-making process. Vancouver is a pretty rainy city, so, I don’t know how many more resin dolls I’ll be able to make this winter. I’ll have to paint then and put them away until sunny breaks, or something. I’m sure I will figure something out.

Stay tuned for pictures of the new resin dolls.

    Марина, приветствую!!!!

    Новая кукла потрясающая!!!
    Хочется видеть её полностью и знать имя.
    Хотя в ней может быть что-то шокирующее, но это только мои предположения.

    Aaaa, I received an email from Marina re the resin waitlist! Could this be possible? Could I have a resin ED? I’m going to cut my Christmas shopping list drastically to make sure there would be enough money for a RED next year!

    And another show in Europe – really, Marina, why do you insist on showing your dolls so far from Australia? :o) We cannot wait for you to come here.

    I’m so excited I can hardly sit!

    Marina may I ask how does the weather affect the production of resin dolls…..

    Hello Marina,
    I’ve sent you an e-mail this morning for putting my name into your list!
    I dind’t write “Resin list request” in the title but I hope it could work as well.
    Please… don’t forget about your Italian fan!!!!!
    Love & devotion,

    Christiane, my guess is that the weather can have an adverse affect on the fixatives that are used to seal and protect the faceups.

    That’s right, the clear resin used for spraying the dolls after painting needs dry and warm weather to set properly. It reacts funny with moisture and doesn’t set.
    I don’t know the nuances of this chemical reaction though.

    Marina, new doll is amazing. Love the silver/bronze? work on her. She looks so mysterious.

    So happy about the Resin Line. Dreams do come true, and we have to thank you for it.

    Have a nice trip to Italy.

    Hi Marina, Just wondered if those that have been on the porcelain list get considered for the resin. It’s just that i’m quite new to the resin list but have been waiting for porcelain over a year and would be happy to sacrifice my place on the porcelain list for this one. I very much doubt that you would consider it but it was just a thought. Other than that, I will patiently wait for Hassana xx

    Sorry Marina….will rephrase that…not ”happily” sacrifice my place on the porcelain list but I’m so delighted with the resin line. Can’t wait. Xxxxx

    Marina I have no ideal as to where you live, but I think its time for you to have a house that has a custom studio with all the accommadotions you need. Controle heating and just the perfect humidity percentage. Oh let it be a gothic era house….wishing nothing but the best!

    I sent an email titled “Resin Wait List/Doll Order” in December 2010 but have not yet received an email from you. Should I be patient or should I re-send that request? Would hate to miss out, but would also hate to clutter your box with duplicate requests!

    Having worked with resins before, I attest to their finicky nature and extreme sensitivity to humidity. They can be very frustrating to work with. We invested in a large dehumidifier with digital controls to place in our studio, and it automatically maintains the humidity levels to whatever level you set it at. Additionally, it puts off some heat, and so long as the room that it’s placed in remains closed off from the rest of the house, the air will stay warm and dry.

    Thank you for making our dreams come true! Your fans, myself included, are positively glowing with the thought of owning one of your resin beauties one day soon. And yes, I agree with Jacci…what is the story of the captivating beauty with the elaborate bronze work?

    Marina, I live in Vermont which has a great deal of humidity and snow. I regularly spray resin dolls all year round doing commission face-ups, even in a driving snowstorm …. as long as you have heat in your studio (and of course, a proper exhaust system for your health) your dolls will not be affected by the winter weather. I always keep my spraying booth on the warmer side. I have more trouble in summer only because we don’t require air conditioning in Vermont, which would otherwise cut the humidity. I usually slow down then. If you have AC that should work as well. In five years of doing face-ups with this system I have never had a single one bloom. Good luck. Virginia
