Tiny 6 inch tall doll, AKA body II
December 4, 2016
This tiny doll has been quite difficult for me. It has been finished for quite awhile but I have only made a few of them and not until today have I officially released them for custom order.
The difficulty with this doll is no fault of the doll itself. I strongly feel like this doll is an improvement on all my previous work, but because it has just as much detail as my bigger dolls in a much smaller size there are technical differences that make this one quite fussy to make.
I have also used this little doll to experiment with spring assembly to learn how to make that work for my dolls. The springs are certainty interesting and they take more work to install compared to elastic but I'm not sure if I prefer one over the other. The springs seem to makes the doll a little more rigid and mechanical feeling but the poses seem to have more stability. I think the elastic stringing makes the doll a little more flexible and organic feeling but the joints are also more likely to kick out of position so the poses are a little less stable.
For custom orders of this doll I have decided to allow buyers the choice of springs or elastic assembly.
I also have one of these 6" dolls already finished and ready for a new home.
I have called this little one Kai and he comes with two wigs and a full outfit that has embroidery and beadwork.
