French Bru

Hi my Dollfriends,
I say goodbye to facebook and hello to blogger!
I want to re-blog, Facebook is nice,but I disagree the new terms of use.

I will post updates in the future always here and merely link on FB.
 
Perhaps wonders of one or the other about the photos of Bru dolls. No I'm not become antique reproducers;-).
But ... I love this Bru Mold. I do not imagine these little dolls ago after strict reproduction edition. My respect for all antique repro artists, but the type of painting the strict eyebrows and eyelashes unnaturally straight is not my thing. (Either way, difficult to reproduce exactly as with the old dolls). So I have taken the liberty to introduce my own style.
Found I have, however, that the plaster mold is very poor, with thick seemlines.
The my own dollmolds are much more precise and better. I had just thought in commercial Molds quality would be much better .... Well, have learned something new.
But do not worry, of course I make my own ball joint dolls on, that's finally my "children", as my heart and soul's inside.


A new project I'm working out ..... I recently read Dracula by Bram Stoker ... that inspired me.

Kei - male BJD

Hello my friends,
Here I want to introduce my male bjd: Kei
I will not sell him because it has some minor blemishes in the paint. He is just for me ^___^.

I never make two identical dolls with clothes and painting. Kei is a Vario series. Each doll is unique.
Later, I will demonstrate his joints in a video. He has double knee and elbow joints.




Next, I work at his "brother". 

Take a look on my website for more pictures of Kei. Thank you for stopping by!!

Bad luck, broken parts & "spots" problems

Hi my friends,
The work molds for my male BJD're done. The first casting and biscuit firing went smoothly. Because usually when the final overcasting of the parts, especially the hands, which always goes to break, I've fired already more parts. Unfortunately, a lower leg and two hands are lost, bad luck. >_< I hope all goes well at the final firing...

Since I have some older Seeley Porcelain slip, it came out on top to "spots" on the faces. Small inclusions of porcelain lumps. These are already clearly visible in the bisque firing.
This time I have to filter the porcelainslip 2 times: 1x through a cloth and then through a strainer. The "spots" problem seems thereby to be fixed. But I await with interest from the final firing.


Die Arbeitsformen für meine männliche BJD sind fertig. Der erste Guss und Schrühbrand verlief reibungslos. Da meist beim endgültigen Versäubern der Teile ,insbesondere der Hände, immer was zu Bruch geht, habe ich schon mehr Teile gebrannt. Leider sind ein Unterschenkel und zwei Hände verloren, Pech.  Ich hoffe beim Glattbrand geht alles gut.

Da ich etwas ältere Seeleys Porzellangießmasse habe, kam es am Anfang zu "Pickeln" auf den Gesichtern. Kleine Einschlüsse von Porzellanklumpen. Diese sind bereits beim Schrühbrand deutlich sichtbar.
Diesmal habe ich die Porzellanmasse 2x gefiltert: 1x durch ein Tuch und dann noch durch ein Sieb. Das Pickel-Problem scheint dadurch behoben zu sein. Aber ich warte gespannt den Glattbrand ab.

A beautiful surprise in Berlin for me

Hi Friends,
the last week I was in my old hometown Berlin without any idea what to do, just for see and relax.
When I the roads wander through I saw an advertising sign for the 54th German-American Volksfest. Ok, I thought, that's be great. Said and done, the next day I went there and what to expect for a great surprise there!! A very famous American Native music band with a great show, Clan / destine.
Incredibly,  if someone told me 17 years ago that I "Crazy Horse" (which was the first song I had heard of this band in 1997) Clan / destine would see once live, I would not have believed it


I have once again learned something: Sometimes you have to wait long, but life always keeps positive surprises when you least expect it.  
It gives me hope again for something positive in my life.

Unfortunately, not even had a decent camera taken along on the trip, so my phone had any lasting, beautiful memories hold.
In this way: thank you, Clan/destine, for the great music, lyrics, positive energy and wonderful show!

Ready for Molds

Hi,
nachdem ich sehr lange gebraucht habe, meine erste männliche Ball jointed doll fertig zu stellen, ist der Kerl endlich soweit in "Form gegossen" zu werden.
Heisst jetzt gehts an die Herstellung der Arbeitsform.
Und dann....tadaaaahhh kann ich endlich mal die fertige Doll in Händen halten. Langsam glaube ich fast selber nicht mehr daran...
Aber was lange währt soll bekanntlich auch wirklich gut werden...;-)


Hi, 
after I took me very long to make my first male ball jointed doll finished , the guy has to be finally "cast in mold". 
Does this mean now he go to the production of the work form. 
And then .... tadaaaahhh, I can finally hold the finished doll in my hands.
But what endures long is also known to be really good...

death always comes unexpectedly

Hello my friends,
the death is part of life, he always comes unexpectedly and leaves an emptiness and sadness. Death is final. No more questions and no more answers.
Death do not pass without a trace to the family. He changed one, it teaches us to accept him, tolerate him and postpone nothing. He shows us how short our time is and we need to use them sensibly and with joy. The dead transforms our view of things and life.
Daddy, I miss you so much!
