Tattooing porcelain

My next doll is near completion! This is a little¬†preview of her tattoo. Once it’s fully engraved, I’m going to try something different with it and see if it works the way I’m hoping. This doll has been an ongoing project for the last year¬†and I’m pretty excited to finally reveal her to you within a month, along with a few other interesting things. Wink-wink.

    Wow, it looks painful holding the needle to do that – is it?
    Can’t wait to see how this turns out! (And what else you have up your sleeves!)

    Ouch Marina, could you not bake a polymer clay handle around that needle? So beautifully intricate, I can’t wait to see the finished doll!

    That is so beautiful! Wow, you’ve really dug in, there are some very recessed areas! But it’s utterly gorgeous, and I can’t wait to see the finished product! I wonder about the tool you use? A stylus of some sort? What ever it is, it works great!

    The tattoo looks wonderful.

    The torso looks slightly bigger than your dolls. Is she will be a new size doll?

    The flowers and patterns remind me slightly of Alphonse Mucha, it’s lovely!
