New exciting project!

Susan Lake of http://www.susanlakeproductions.com/

and I will be working together on a project. The incredibly talented artist, who specialises in hat design, will make a tiny little hat for one of my miniature porcelain ball jointed dolls. Since the circumference of my dolls heads is only 7.5 to 8 cm, this will be a new task for Susan. She has, until now, designed beautiful human-sized hats and hats for much larger ball jointed dolls. I have an idea for the outfit and general look of the doll, which the hat will be prepared for once Susan and I work out all the details.

I am very excited about this and very honoured! Thank you, Susan! Looking forward to the outcome… 🙂

Stay tuned! This will be something new and worth waiting for!

New website(s) and a lot of porcelain around! :)

 

I’ve been working very hard in porcelain AND on my website, which is now also available in Russian!

http://lightpainteddoll.ru/

The plan is to make the website multilingual and accessible for many people in many countries. Next up are German and French! 🙂

In the meantime- dolls in the kiln… I’ve been sitting and waiting for them to come out tonight but I think I’ll let them be and go to bed! 🙂 My sleeping patterns have completely reversed. What can I do! I’ve always been more of a night person anyway, lol. Now it has completely ceased to matter when I wake up and when I go to sleep- I am so consumed with making dolls. But I am not overdoing it, I promise! 🙂

 

The above being two days ago, I can now post a few photos of some of the little doll parts that did come out of the kiln! I have to say, I am very pleased. And also- I’m in love with my kiln. Totally. In my language a kiln (the word) is masculine, so I could almost say that he is the most reliable… hmm… I’ve ever met! LOL.

 

Lightpainted Doll post-casting and pre-firing stages

Work in progress

Waaaaaay before I put them in the kiln. There’s a lot of sculpting still to do to make sure that the finest details are indeed fine.

Pre-stage of sanding, carving, working on tiny details, making sure that every little part is perfect before they get fired in the kiln.

Have I mentioned that I absolutely love my kiln?! 🙂

It’s clever, it’s reliable, it’s a perfectionist like me and… it’s shiny! LOL.

The girls soon after firing, piled up on shelves (I have three layers like this one, yay!).

Empty Bowl- Support animals with us just by clicking on the banner!

Hello…

I can’t express how important animals have always been to me and how much unconditional love I have received throughout my life from my dogs, cats, chinchillas, hamsters and even foxes.

Every animal years for love. They are so vulnerable and humans are overtaking their space and “regulate” their populations simply by killing them. There’s more and more of us but less and less of animals. The conditions in which animals live in the poorest countries are horrifying. Even in countries where people care about animals more, those furies which don’t have a home usually end up neglected, ill and hungry.

Every shelter, every organisation which help animals need support.

Imagine, if it only takes as little as one click a day to help a dog or a cat (or any other living creature)- how much YOU  can do without spending a dime!

LIGHTPAINTED DOLL wholeheartedly supports the following action:

 

 

The aim of this campaign is to improve the living conditions of suffering animals

in neglected and resources-lacking shelters by collecting funds from advertising.

Up to this day we have gathered together: 7739.26 Euro!

We operate in the form of volunteering and all accumulated funds go to the animals.

Visit us often. Animals are waiting for your help!

 

70 CLICKS!

That’s what it takes to improve the living conditions of an animal in a shelter.

 

A CLICK A DAY CAN

MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE.

And it’s so easy to do…

 

Please help us help animals!

 

Thank you for your time. <3
