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. (Paypal invoice or credit card sales are available). The website will not give you the sale prices. You may also request the CD Workbook’s as a download and have no shipping costs. Shipping will be $8.00 for a small priority flat rate box on any purchase of CD’s shipped whether one, two or all three are purchased together. 

Below are photos of dolls that I painted as samples during the online classes using the CD Workbooks. Give the gift of doll making knowledge to yourself or someone else this Christmas!

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.
