3rd Day – “Twelve Days of Christmas Sales” 2018

German Paint Collection

It’s the 3rd Day of Christmas and this is what’s on sale! Today’s feature is my German Collection China Paint Set. Our line of china paints are produced to give reliable results each and every time. These china paints contain lead which allows for consistent firings and excellent fluidity. Our paints blend easily and fade less than unleaded china paints during firing. All of our china paints should be fired to cone 018. When doing many multiple firings I do fire to 019 and then evaluate on the last firing if I need to fire one last time to 018. 
The German Collection can be used for all types of German dolls including “Mein Liebling”, “Hilda”, and many of the “Heubach” children. The collection consists of German Wash, German Eyelash, German Light Hair, German Dark Hair, German Light Brow, German Dark Brow, German Lip, and German Lip Shading and Cheeks. 
Regular Price on the German Collection Paint Set is $54.00. From today until December 20th, it is on special for $40.00 for the set of 8 colors. I have multiple sets available so this offer is not limited to one.

2nd Day of “Twelve Days of Christmas Sales” 19″ “April”

19" April by Connie Zink

It was the 2nd Day of Christmas and this is what’s on sale!

19″”April” by Connie Zink 

19" April by Connie ZinkThis beautiful 19″ April with blue painted eyes is a true work of art. She has an all porcelain body. April was originally sculpted by Dianna Effner and made from a mold available through Expressions. Her exquisite smocked costume was crafted for me by Sue Sharp of the The Sharp Needle. April stands 19″ tall but you need to allow 21″ in height on a shelf to accommodate the bow. She is wearing a yellow print cotton dress with a hand smocked cotton pinafore. She has a cotton slip and underwear along with yellow shoes and cotton stockings. I have been painting and teaching lifelike modern painted eyes for over 15 years. It takes numerous firings to achieve the depth as shown in these painted eyes. From the photos you can see this doll is painted to perfection with a lifelike realistic expression. The regular price on this doll is $550.00. For the Christmas sale she is reduced to $495.00 plus shipping. Sale ends December 20th. I am not including a shopping cart button for this doll as I only have one. Please email me at landofozdolls@mchsi.com or phone 815-565-0024 if you are interested in purchasing her and I can send a Paypal invoice or you can call with credit card info.19" April by Connie Zink19" April by Connie Zink19" April by Connie Zink19" April by Connie Zink19" April by Connie Zink19" April by Connie Zink19" April by Connie Zink19" April by Connie Zink19" April by Connie Zink

First Day of Christmas: 24″ Father Christmas Ready to Costume!

24" Kimple Father Christmas24" Kimple Father Christmas

This 24″ Father Christmas made from the Kimple mold was completed in 2008. I’m sorry to say he never was finished with costume so I have decided to offer him for sale as an undressed doll. He stands 24″ tall and is complete on his cloth body with the under robe and metal doll stand. I do not have a costume pattern to go with him. He has a beautifully painted porcelain head with beard, bisque hands and painted brown boots. Father Christmas has blue painted eyes. Completed with a traditional Father Christmas robe he will make an awesome addition to anyone’s Christmas collection. He will be my one and only offering of this size. I lost this mold in the storage unit fire of 2012 and was never able to replace it. He is a one of a kind offering from me. I do however still have the large size Father Christmas mold from Kimple that I offer soft fired greenware and blank bisque. 
Regular price is $450.00 however his sale price through my “Twelve Days of Christmas Sales” is $375.00. If I list him in my eBay store or Etsy he will be listed at the $450.00 original cost. Sale price is only available through the website sale here. To purchase please email me at landofozdolls@mchsi.com or call me at 815-565-0024. The first person to contact me will receive him at the special price. I can then figure out shipping costs to your location. He is available for both domestic and international shipping. Here are some more photos of Father Christmas:
