Mulatto Bru head

Here is another extra doll head I am playing with. This is 19 inch Mulatto Bru Jne 11 head.


I had these vintage brown paper weight eyes from unknown company. They have very high crystal domes and nice threaded patterns. They fit perfectly for this head. I wish I could find maker of these eyes.( They are not from Hand craft or Kanis eyes, or Schoepfers eye)


With Circle Dot Bru head. I like to make bodies for them somday.


Circle Dot Bru head

If you are wondering when I am going to start making a new doll, it’s not that I am not doing anything. 🙂  I have been busy trying to figure out how to prepare workshop in May and being bit slow to start new doll project.  Meanwhile, I noticed few Circle Dot Bru heads with half painted laying around on my desk for few years. ( they are dated 2015) I have decided to finish them just for fun while I am running kiln for other project. Looks like I gave up painting because I could not accept doll head with uneven eye cut back then. Circle Dot Bru head is very challenging to paint because if I don’t paint right, it can turn into very ” ugly” face. But without practice, I won’t be able able to improve my skill anyway, these are perfect material for that purpose. Her eye cut is very uneven but I can see it as her charming character now. Funny how our brain seem to be able to adopt negative images as a positive one in overtime.


Workshop seats SOLD OUT

Workshop ” Making 14 inch Bru Jne 4 with Chevrot style body”

A Happy New Year! Finally Holiday season is over and I am ready to get back to normal routine. Are you?  I like to start 2018 by announcing exciting plan ” workshop to make 14 inch Bru Jne 4 with Chevrot style body” in my house this spring.  I have received so many requests to host event in US and I can finally schedule one this year. Instead of hosting event outside, I like to invite participants in my house to teach how to make small size Bru doll with Chevrot body like this little girl on photo below.
