Online Porcelain Doll Classes Starting!!!

Good evening to all! It’s been awhile since I stopped by the website to give you an update of what’s new around Land of Oz Dolls. There are some exciting things happening here! First news is I am beginning online porcelain doll classes through a group on Facebook. I will be doing some free demonstrations along with doing classes online for both modern and antique reproduction doll makers. By joining the group if you are a Facebook user, it will keep you informed of the upcoming classes and free demos. Joining the group does not commit you to paid classes, it just lets you know what will be available and when. If you are not a Facebook member and you are interested in online classes please contact me at landofozdolls@mchsi.com I am trying to set up a way to also do classes for non Facebook users. The group is called Land of Oz Dolls – Connie Zink. Here is a link to the Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1154476334610929/?ref=bookmarks 
I also have some of my most popular doll making supplies back in stock! My three CD Workbook set is back and on sale! These include one on painting a Jumeau, a Bru, and Modern Eye Painting. These CD’s have been available before so if you already have some from me they are the same just back in stock again! The CD Workbooks are step by step full color instructions and photos that guide you through the steps for the complete doll. This year I am hoping to complete a new CD on the AT11, one of my favorite antique reproduction dolls. Here is a link to the CD’s: https://landofozdolls.net/cd-doll-making-workbooks/creating-the-perfect-bru/ Just scroll to the bottom of the page of the individual CD’s and the set on sale will be at the bottom of the page.

Also now available for the first time in several years!!! I will be carrying the Seeley Doll Brushes! Always a favorite for doll makers these brushes are now available for purchase from me and can be added in with your other doll making supplies to save on shipping. There are no shopping cart buttons for the brushes. Currently there is only a price list. You will need to email me the brushes you would like to purchase and I can add them in to any existing orders or you may purchase brushes alone. Eventually I will be able to add photos of the brushes to the page here on the website. Here is a link to the brush price list: https://landofozdolls.net/seeley-doll-brushes/
