Doll Making – Bru Jne

Twenty-file years ago, I made porcelain doll reproductions.  My favorite, a French bebe doll named Bru Jne, is pictured below.  She stands about 23 inches tall.  The process of making a doll such as this is labor intensive, but I have made a thing of beauty, so the work was worthwhile and the pleasure continues.  Enjoy!

    Linda, this doll is wonderful! Did you sculpt her face? And make all the clothes? Such a beauty.

    • Hello Irina,
      I did not sculpt the doll’s face. It started with liquid porcelain clay poured into a mold. I’ll write more about the process on my blog. I did make the clothes. I seemed to have much more time back then. Thanks for writing. Linda
