1/2' Scale Lady in Ballgown

Here is a tiny 1/2' scale lady doll I did quite awhile ago.  Her name is Alice.  I don't do tiny dolls very often but I loved the challenge of getting a lot of scale and detail into such a small doll.  Her face was the size of a pea or small bean.

To see the full size photo of Alice click on images or, click here:

A look at scale - 1/4" - 1/2" - 1/12th dolls

I have been painting doll kits for some of my customers.  I happen to be working on some tiny 1/4" & 1/2 scale dolls and it amazes me how much of a difference there is in the size of each scale.  1/4" scale is so tiny, her head is smaller than a small pea, and the 1/2" scale lady has a head just a bit bigger than a pea.  The !/12th scale lady is about 5 1/2 ", the 1/2" lady is about 2 3/4" tall, and the tiny 1/4" scale lady stands a mere 1 1/2" tall (if even).

Do any of you work in smaller scales very often? I prefer 1/12th scale myself but will on occasion dress some 1/2" scale dolls as well. If anyone wants to share photos of their smaller dolls, send me the photos and I can post them.

It's First Give-away Time!

Hi all,
Okay, I have decided to have the first "Give-away" on my blog.  I will start with smaller items for doll making and as the followers grow so will the value of the prize!

The first give-away is for some fantastic Antique Lace.  It will be for 3 yds of 3 different antique laces.  Some of them are French. They are valued at $4.00 - $6.00 per yard (if you can even find any for sale). That is a total value of $42.00 in lace, not bad for a first time give away.  They are very fine cotton. This should be enough to create a lovely doll or more.  Rules below.

First:  You need to make sure you are a follower on my blog (click "follow" if you haven't already).
Secondly: You just need to comment on this post telling me that you are indeed interested in being in the contest, and what your miniature interests are and what you would do with the lace if you won!  That's it.  You only need to comment once and I will take all of the names of the entrants and have someone in my family pull the lucky winners name! 

The Contest will close the end of next week at 9:00 pm Pacific time!  Good luck everyone and don't forget to tell your friends!
