If you're a maker of original, individually sculpted dolls, who enjoys working to commission in more than one scale, actually there's not really such thing as a comfort zone...the different challenges are part of the fun.
This little group of 1/24th characters are all completely different - different challenges, even different centuries!
First up is a Scotsman - a character you may have seen before as he's one of my most poular. I've photographed him alongside a sweet little laddie I fell in love with in a charity shop recently. I'll guess he's a 1950s/60s 'Present From Scotland' - but it's unusual to see a proper boy's face in dolls like this and although his kilt is threadbare and he's lost his bagpipes I don't mind a bit. Which reminds me - my Scot needs some bagpipes.
This little lady has gone to U.S.A to run an Olde Tea Shoppe.
I like to think this this rather down at heel old boy probably knew Charles Dickens.
She's a Vampire! I'd love to see what final setting she's destined for.....
...but then there's a Mummy too!
Thanks for Looking
