I am not sure if this should go under the Construction topic, but I'm interested in learning about the different types of porcelain used by porcelain bjd artists. I own three porcelain girls by two different artists. I have been told that one doll is made of Parian porcelain which is an inferior type and is thinner and more translucent than my other two girls. I am not looking to offend any of the artists because all of my dolls are beautiful and treasured by me very much — just looking for a bit of an education and am not sure if this has been discussed but I'm missing it. Also, do artists from certain countries use a particular kind versus another because it is easier to get? I'm very curious about this and welcome any input or comparison photos. Once I learn to post photos from a mobile device maybe I'll add some comparison shots to my post. :-) Thank you!
I am not professional doll artist, but have done few dolls and used different slips. In Finland it is kind of difficult to find porcelain slip, so I just use what ever I can get my hands on. I wish that I could order slip from other countries, especially I've seen some interesting stuff in Unated States, but postage cost would be astronomical and can not afford that at the moment.
