Hi,
Some of you guys have already seen this on flickr, but I’ve just introduced a new, rose skin tone for my dolls. So, those who prefer the more natural skin look to the stark white porcelain I usually use to cast my dolls, now have that option.
This feature comes with an extra charge though, as rose porcelain is more expensive and fickle than white. As a rule, any skin tone is always more difficult to achieve than simple white. Porcelain is a rather difficult and time consuming material to work with. Sometimes i hate it. Most of the time i love it though. I shot some pics today of a white and rose girl side by side for colour comparison. I’ll post it/them tomorrow.

I have a long day tomorrow…..I have to make 7 new molds for a double jointed male and go grocery shopping to Costco too, because i have nothing to eat in my house. I don’t know how i’m going to be able to do both, as mold-making is usually a 12 hour affair of non-stop work. No joke, i don’t have time to put my hands down from morning to at least midnight. And it’s mentally exhausting and hard on the eyes too because making a functional, multi-piece mold is such a delicate and dirty procedure. Plaster is unforgiving of any undercuts whatsoever and you have to be so careful with separation lines or the mold is ruined. On the scale that i work the margin of error is usually about 2-5 millimeters. After about 9 hours of messing around with wet clay, surgical and dental tools, water and plaster, my finger joints begin to lock up, my wrists are on fire, my finger tips are numb and my eyes are crossing over from the strain. Anyway…I think this last paragraph should have been categorized as a ‘Rant’. Oh, well.

I just want to post that I’m working on a new double jointed male doll. Both the legs and the arms will be double jointed, allowing for the same level of articulation as the female dolls.

The target completion date for the first doll is in two weeks. I’ll have pictures posted then, so keep your eyes open for him.

Marina.

Banshe + Apple

I finished Banshe, and took some shots of her dressed as “Snow White”. You will see one such picture at the top of the site.

I was pleased with the wait the hair turned out, very nice waves.

Working on a new site for enchanteddoll.com, with lots of new galleries (which means new dolls!).

The new site will be updated a lot more frequently, and news and progress reports will be added via this blog.

Shouldn’t be too long now, just working on the write-ups for the dolls.
