As most of you know, I mainly concentrate on creating antique reproduction dolls, but occasionally I like to mix in a few modern dolls. I love doing painted eyes. I have a special order that has been sitting here for months waiting for me to get started on it. It will be a 19" all-porcelain Portrait #5 sculpted by Dianna Effner. The mold was produced and sold through Expressions. This doll was chosen for me to do by my client,as it looks like his granddaughter. After I have finished her, I will post some photos of her. In the meantime, here are a few photos of dolls I did with painted eyes several years back.
|"Molly" by Connie Zink|
This is "Molly" a 24" doll originally sculpted by Dianna Effner. The molds were produced and sold through Expressions. Her eyes were an experiment of colors. I love the way they turned out.
|"Ashley" by Connie Zink|
This doll is "Ashley" a Dianna Effner sculpture. The mold was produced and sold by Expressions. She makes a 28" doll when completed.. I have painted her with green eyes.
I hope you have enjoyed my little tour of a few of the modern dolls I have made. Have a great evening!
Until next time,
