|Thanks so much, Anjl!!!
Carol - I went back and looked at your dollhouse photos! Very, very nice! So many awesome details!!! How many doll houses have you created? Is the entire house (of that particular one pictured above) done in Tudor style? If so, I would love to see more photos.
Also, you mentioned you buy the cheap dolls and remake/re-dress them! I, too, was thinking of that as another possibility. I've seen some dolls and molds for making dolls out of polymer clay and was blown away by how beautiful they turned out. You are right that the molds and clay are very expensive. Now I understand why the hand-made dolls are so expensive.
I guess I am getting way ahead of myself to even be contemplating making scale dolls and costumes. It's been over 25 years (I think) since I "started" the doll house that I've still yet to finish! And I am already thinking of making dolls too? Who am I kidding???!!! But I do get swept away with all the options out there. Some really beautiful handiwork and kits. I have a book called "Making & Dressing Dolls' House Dolls in 1/12 scale" by Sue Atkinson. It's a wonderful book with some amazing ideas, instructions, and photos. Not to mention all the different clothing patterns! I look at that book a lot which is why I think that is why I would love to try to make my very own signature doll from a mold.
Another Day in Paradise!
