Extreme methods of Surviving is the title of this book in English, and the result of my very first attempt at a ball jointed, porcelain doll is on its cover. I made her in 2005 and she became my guinea pig and an ancestor to most of my porcelain dolls. I learned so much from this first doll. After I assembled her, I wrote a report to myself about the mistakes I had made with sculpting the joints and molding them and what can be done to correct them. She was followed by an intense two years of improvements and re-sculpts and re-tries until I had my techniques and methods more or less established. I’m still learning and improving of course, but I will never forget those driven, insane years in my journey to articulated porcelain dolls.

The book is authored by Marcia Bechara, from Sao Paulo and it’s coming out in Brazil this summer. It contains a compilation of fictional stories about survival of non-traditional and subjective obstacles in life. I’m looking forward to getting my copy of it, but unfortunately I won’t be able to read it unless somebody translates it for me.
