This picture shows some parts of the process of this particular doll. This young ballerina was made by request as portrait doll, ressembling the facial features of the customer's daughter. Here in Argentina there is not Sweet sixteen birthday party as in other countries, here the most special moment for a girl is her fifteenth birthday and is for that very special and sweet ocasion that this doll was made.
The head was made remodeling a 03 head from our catalog, working directly on the raw porcelain, adding clay where was necesary,  and meticulous carving in other areas with needles and tiny brushes to soften the surface. Then, as the rest of the pieces, was fired at 1245° C degrees in an electric kiln. The doll is very tiny, measures 29 cms. tall only, so the head is the size of a nutshell . It is a very demanding issue to work so detailed at this scale but it can not be more satisfying.
It is painted with aerographer and tiny brushes with acrylics and pastels and sealed with an acrylic satin lacquer for a more natural look.
The hair is a fixed wig made in soft dark brown mohair and styled with curls.

The doll includes an special custom stand which sustain the doll by one of any of her legs, that way the stand does not interfere with the fit of the dress and allows more freedom to posing the doll.
The tutú is made in two parts, the skirt made in tulle and crystal gauze and a corset made in satin with a lace applique enhanced with glass beads and sequins. It is closed at the back with crossed satin ribbons.
