Sharing a love of Dolls House Miniatures - and making time for other creative crafts and the garden.

Saturday, July 31, 2010

O.K. Folks – this is my first proper blog, so can I kindly ask you to remember that I am a doll maker and not the least bit technical....I'll probably make mistakes.......I promise I will do my best to get better........

Although I create character dolls in other scales, 1/24th scale has been occupying my work time for several weeks, so I thought I'd share a few of my recent commissions and the ones I am working on for 'stock', over the next few postings.

These chatty little ladies, off to do their shopping, are old favourites; because each doll is quite different - sculpted and dressed as a 'one-off' - no-one gets the same little person. And....yes ... it is an acorn cup turned into one of the baskets!

It's a few years since I was asked to create Japanese ladies, so this was fun. The photo was taken before carefully packing and sending two off to their new home in an exquisite tea garden. As I reckon it might be a while before I'm challenged again, and have to dig out the research notes and pictures, I made a third to go into stock.

The last little group are for an Edwardian funeral! I promise that the vicar adjusted his cross before taking up residence in the 1/24th church somewhere in the home counties.

Catching up...........

Welcome to my COOMBE CRAFTS catch-up-blog.......which will, I hope enable me to show you the new miniature characters I'm creating, that don't manage to feature on our website, and also introduce some of the new “interesting things to go with them”.
