6th Day Of Christmas Sales! This Is What’s On Sale!

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.

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!

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! This Doll Has Been Sold!

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.
