Enchanted resin dolls have glass eyes

And tiny eyelashes!

At first I wasn’t sure if I wanted to give my resin dolls glass eyes, but once I found the right kind of eyes, I was won over. This in turn, allowed me to give these dolls real eyelashes, something I’ve always wanted to do, but was unable to due to the shallow surface area of porcelain eyelids. The eyes are tacked on with a sticky gum inside, which means they can be changed fairly easily. The head cap is magnetic and the head is removable from the rest of the body. The doll is strung up with elastic and it articulates and holds poses very well. I am very happy with the quality of resin and the soft, satin glow of the skin.

Tomorrow I’ll shoot all my newly painted resin dolls and show you all of it!

    Blown away with news of glass eyes. What a surprise to your fans! Last heard you were not going to do it. With eyelashes too, my oh my they are going to have souls!

  12. Kate says:

    This is just awesome! I have a question–you fire all of your porcelain dolls yourself, right? But I assume that you had to have these dolls manufactured elsewhere off of your designs/molds? What was it like doing this, and how did it differ from the porcelain process? Just so curious… I love every glimpse of this new process!

    Amazing news hacked my brains! What a surprise!
    They are a bit different than porcelain, but at the same time, is instantly recognizable style, they have the enchanted blood! They are so beautiful! I really want to adopt one! (But porcelain doll she did not replace, now I need two, resin and porcelain, or three, or four..) ☺

  27. elmuneco says:

    OMG Marina these look AMAZING!!! How will these be sold? Could this finally be a chance to fulfill my dream of owning an Enchanted Doll!!! Be still my beating heart!!!

  28. Niiv says:

    TEARS OF JOY! They are so beautiful, I can’t even… they look like they stepped out of the loveliest fairy tale. So my dream of own an ED may come true after all… Thank you for this! You’re an amazing artist, and I can’t wait to see what else you have in stock for us.

  29. Annina says:

    does Chad get to paint one? i’d love to see her! :D

  30. Mai says:

    Marina, I commend your versatility and courage as an artist. You are not afraid to try new things — and you rapidly become a master of new techniques once you put your hand to them! I am inspired! You have delighted your fans once again. The new resin dolls have a character and essence that is uniquely their own. They are playful, charming, and entirely enchanted. I still love the painted eyes of the porcelain dolls — they too, have a soulful gaze and are always beautifully done. I’m glad that we get to see both in your work. :-)

  31. Leigh in ME says:

    These are exquisite! absolutely beautiful!

  32. giperborea says:

    This is quite a surprise!!! I have to admit though that I’m somewhat disappointed these resin dolls will have glass eyes, originally I was won over by EDs because of their painted eyes, they had so much expression in them, this is what made EDs stand out from the crowd of glass-eyed BJDs. But all the faces on the pic look the same((( I think the new faces lost Marina’s artistic touch with these new eyes((( I totally understand the excitement though, glass eyes allow fans to change eye color, etc, it’s an awesome possibility.

  33. Astera says:

    Fantastic work Marina! So exciting! Does it take the same amount of time to paint them? Will we see dolls with different skin colors?

  34. Suok69 says:

    They all look fantastic. Love the idea of glass eyes and real eyelashes.

    Marina, the resin girls look outstanding. It took two years in making but it well worth it, they are stunning. I just hope that there will be more resin doll for all your fans. :)

    Congratulations with your new babies.

  35. Orangey says:

    Ohhhhh. They look incredible, they REALLY look incredible. So breathtaking and beautiful. I love how you’ve managed to choose the right type of resin and paint them in a way that they actually look like porcelain. Even the lips are the same style even when the process is so radically different.

    The painted eyes on your porcelain dolls are perfect and the glass eyes on the resins really suit them. Eyelashes are a great idea. The only thing is that of course with painted eyes one can vary the shape or style slightly whereas that’s not possible here, but who cares.

  36. jacci says:

    hard to believe they’re resin. they look as beautiful as the poceline dolls. awesome job, as always, can’t wait for pics

  37. Melissa says:

    love, love, love ^—-^

  38. Hannah says:

    Wow Marina! I see a difference in your dolls eyes that don’t make your dolls look any less beautiful!!

  39. Ren says:

    Боже, боже, боже, они великолепны! Такие волшебные очаровашки! Я так поняла, именно этих куколок вы и повезёте на выставку в Москву? Если да, хотелось бы узнать за сколько их можно приобрести.

  40. Rabbit Hole says:

    Oh!she’s so real,I want her.

  41. Beth says:

    Glad you are happy with the quality of the resin. It seems to have a lovely luminosity to it that is so beautiful. I love that these resin dolls have glass eyes and real eyelashes. It makes them so amazingly lifelike. I am sure they will be a huge success. Just going from the blog comments, it seems that everyone is smitten with them already. Thank you for not giving up on a resin line of dolls.

  42. Siobhán says:

    ah, I am absolutely blown away by how wonderful the glass eyes look! The resin seems equally beautiful, it looks like french resin to my eyes. Any chance of these beauties, or more like them, going on general sale?

  43. Beej says:

    These are the best, most expressive glass-eyed doll faces ever. Gorgeous. I have one question, though I doubt it will be answered. In the past, you have ventured to make dolls of various skin color in your porcelain dolls. The resin dolls are marvellous and may be able to reach an even wider audience due to material and cost. But considering how they are cast, do you plan on offering varied skin tones? If you did.. I can’t express how glorious that would be.
