  1. The process it’s interesting to see. Didn’t think it was a fabric needle pin (if that is the name) .
    Every time I see your work it fuels my imagination. Your work keeps motivating me.

    Wow! To see your vision for her emerge brilliant. Was it to a specific plan, or was there some improvising on the way? Excellent video. Thank you so much for sharing it.

    I wonder if you’ll ever engrave another doll, following M. P?? Or whether she is the epitome of an engraved doll?

    as someone who loves the world of tattoos ( and have many of my own ) this was a really amazing video to watch. i know it takes a steady hand, but damn, the detail!
    i’ve watched tattoo artists as they’ve worked on me and always loved the results. the one thing your dolls luckily don’t have to feel is the irritating pain of the needle while you engrave them ;)
    i always wondered if you used a template of some sort, its cool to see you draw the designs freehand.
     thanks for sharing.

    Okay, so I see you engrave while it’s wet, smart! Always amazing to watch! I did not realize you put that prop cotton in the arms as well as body, I didn’t think it would need that. A very interesting and informative little video.
