“Photos of the Day” 18″ April Modern Painted Eye Dolls

Good morning all, the Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014 “Photos of the Day” are three of my 18″ “April” modern painted eye dolls. The original sculpture was created by Dianna Effner and the mold sold through Expression’s Dolls. Back in the winter of 2010 I taught an online eye painting class using these three dolls as my samples. “April” has intaglio eyes incised in the mold making her a little easier to learn the placement of the eyes. She is so much fun to paint and has such a sweet expression. All three dolls are wearing wigs from Monique Trading and the costumes were made by Sue Sharp of “The Sharp Needle”. I do have this doll available in soft-fired greenware, blank bisque and as a finished doll by order. She has her own all porcelain body (Portrait Body). I do have the CD Workbooks for Painted Eyes available on my website here.

“10 Inch Little Lou” “Photo of the Day” September 2nd, 2014

Good morning all, my “Photo of the Day” for September 2nd, is one of my favorite modern dolls. I mainly do antique reproductions but every once in awhile I will get to do a modern doll with painted eyes. “Little Lou” was originally sculpted by Diana Effner and the molds produced from Expressions Dolls. “Little Lou” stands 10″ tall on her own little all-porcelain body. She has very expressively painted blue eyes. She is wearing a costume that was made by Clara Pelfrey. “Little Lou would be available in soft-fired greenware, blank bisque or also as a painted doll. This little beauty is no longer available for sale as she has been sold, however I do take orders for finished “Little Lou’s”. My CD Workbook on Modern Eye-Painting is also available here on the website.
