Welcome to my 6th Day of Christmas Sales! Today I am offering my CD Workbooks at a reduced price from now until December 20th, 2018. Learn to paint beautiful antique reproduction and modern painted eye dolls with the help of my complete step by step photos and written instructions. 

CD Workbook Set by Connie Zink

CD Workbook Set by Connie Zink

I currently have three different CD Workbooks available. I have “Creating the Perfect Bru”, “Creating a Tete Jumeau”, and “April” In-Depth Eye Painting (Blue Eyes). The set of three is regularly priced at $100.00 for the set. It will be on sale until December 20th for $90.00. I will also be selling them individually right now for $35.00 each. Regular sale price here on my website is $45.00 each.

Here is a description of the Bru and Jumeau CD Workbooks:

If you have a difficult time making it to seminars, let the seminars come to your studio and guide you through the steps of pouring, eye-cutting, soft-fire greenware cleaning, and china painting your Bru or Jumeau. I will guide you with step by step photos through the entire process of creating a beautiful heirloom antique reproduction doll. The Bru CD Workbook has been written for the 30″ CDW 201 Bru 14 and the 28″ VL 7 Bru 13. The Jumeau is using the Tete Jumeau as an example. The CD Workbooks are step by step comprehensive photos and directions put on CD. They cover the complete process from eye-cutting thru soft-fire greenware cleaning, and all the china paint firings. The CD Workbook requires a pdf reader on your computer to open it. (This is not a video) You may study and paint from the clear concise photos on your computer or print off the workbook for a hard copy. Please realize the clearest photos will be on your computer.

Here is the description for the “April” Blue Eye CD Workbook: 

If you have a difficult time making it to seminars, let the seminars come to your studio and guide you through the steps of pouring, soft-fire greenware cleaning, and china painting your April. I will guide you with step by step photos through the entire process of creating a beautiful heirloom modern painted eye doll. This CD Workbook has been written for the 19″ April doll from Expressions. I will be doing blue eyes on this doll. This CD Workbook is 110 full-color pages of step by step comprehensive photos and directions put on CD, of the complete process from pouring the head mold, soft-fire greenware cleaning, loading the bisque fire kiln, thru all the china paint firings and doll stringing assembly. The CD Workbook requires a pdf reader on your computer to open it (This is not a video). You may study and paint from the clear concise photos on your computer or print off the workbook for a 110 page hard copy. Please realize the clearest photos will be on your computer.

I am now also offering online classes that use the CD Workbooks as an aid in the “live” classes. New sessions will be starting in January. After the first of the year I will be publishing more information and a schedule here on my upcoming classes and how they work. It is wonderful to be able to sit in the comfort of your own home and learn porcelain doll-making. 

To receive the special pricing of $90.00 for the set of three or $35.00 each until December 20th you must email me at landofozdolls@mchsi.com or phone 815-565-0024.
