Yes!! I'm so glad you posted this. I had in my notes that "dd-anne" made porcelain BJDs but I couldn't find the work anywhere! Know I know the brand it will be much easier. And how beautiful and delicate they are!
Is she really porcelain? She has that warm resin look!
DD-Anne's work is so beautifull, I had the pleasure to meet her and see her dolls in real life a few months ago (I'm a long time fan, my first resin doll was from her) She's really nice and the doll is so pretty. She might have the 'resin' look here because she didn't had enought time before she came to europe to give her a glaze so she found the solution in coloring her with acrylics. Right now she's remaking her molds to cast her again. She's crazy perfectionalist, she see's every little detail that she doesn't agree with and does everything to make it perfect.

Hasel, I think that you offered DD-Anne some much needed support and encouragement through the difficulties of working with porcelain - it's really wonderful that artists can help each other online even with something that's so 'hands on'. I would never consider working with porcelain if it weren't for the amount of information and resources online specific to dollmaking.
Nene, are you on flickr? I agree, DD-Anne has a wonderful work ethic and works incredibly hard to make a living from dollmaking, but whilst continuing to push herself and learn new things. Really inspiring!
Thanks Heartstrung, I just tell her what I think (and sometimes try to explain something) sometimes we all need some support and to hear some words of encouragement. It's such fickle material to work with that seems hopeless at some points.
There are online resources? lol XD I just kind of went in there, without looking for information about porcelin dollmaking online and just asked a ceramist I know how to go about it and bought a bunch of stuff and just started. Maybe there should be a thread where people can list those resources.
