New Listings – 6.1.15

I have two new dolls available that I posted last night for sale in my Etsy shop! I know I say I’m quite proud of them when I post them, but honestly I DO feel a great deal of pride in creating something beautiful and different. I’ve been working on marketing them more and sharing them with others who appreciate the medium as it were and am glad that they can be shared.

 

So without further ado…my two new girls!

As always, my dolls are stripped of their factory paint and refaced with quality Faber-Castell and Prismacolor brand watercolor pencils and soft chalk pastels. They are sealed multiple times and in multiple layers with Mr. Super Clean UV Matte Sealant and Liquitex Gloss Varnish. Hair is usually washed and conditioned, then restyled with either a boil perm, boil straightening, braiding or cut. I’ve recently started to apply eyelashes as well for a three-dimensional depth and on occasion have given the dolls body blushing and/or painted nails. Dolls can also be customized and requests for commissions are accepted!!

 

New Listing – 5.20.15

So I know I’ve been a little remiss in posting as of late but that’s due, in part, to having a race to run and getting things up and going shop wise still. I’m always on the look out for new dolls to procure at decent prices (so I can keep the prices for my repaints relatively affordable!) and besides, I started a new position in my job which has me going non-stop almost all of the day so by the time I get home I’m exhausted! I’ve also been in a very introspective place which I think I will write about and share soon.

However, that didnt stop me from getting not one, but TWO new dolls up into my shop this past weekend. I generally try to get the new listings posted the same day that I get them in the shop, but it just hasn’t worked out that way this go around so hopefully it will with the next one. I also have a new WIP that I’m working on and a doll I had previously repainted that I’ve been debating rerooting – but trying to decide on hair! (Thankfully Dollyhair.com has a 10% sale going right now so I might just have to take advantage of that for her once I decide on colors!)

So, up for offer recently are:

 

Operetta Repaint

Now this one, this one I’m REALLY excited for and took great pride working on. Granted, I love all the dolls I work on, but sometimes you do something and you step back when you’re finished and you’re just EXCITED about the work you’ve created. This Skelita, now she I can sit back and say YES! This is why I do this.

   Skelita Calaveras Monster High Repaint        

 

As always, my dolls are repainted using high-quality Faber-Castell and Prismacolor watercolor pencils and soft chalk pastels. They are sealed using Mr. Super Clean UV Matte Sealant and Liquitex Gloss Varnish for their shiny parts. In both instances here, their hair was washed, conditioned and then boil-permed, styled and sprayed into place. All purchase information is located on my etsy shop.

Newly Listed – 4.19.15

I have yet another offering available today in my Etsy shop! She’s rather simply beautiful and I’m quite proud of her. Her hair wanted to give me a little trouble and I think I want to go back to washing and conditioning the dolls hair PRIOR to faceup so that when I go to style it I have an easier time, especially for some of the dolls with the thicker hair like Lagoona.

As always, Lagoona has been repainted using the highest quality products: Faber-Castell Watercolor Pencils and Soft Pastels, Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils and Soft Pastels, Mr. Super Clean UV Matte Sealant and Liquitex Gloss Varnish.
