Eli has just announced on her blog that she and her father have just developed a new shock resistant ceramics slip. She's currently in the process of having her new porcelain patented and has posted some photos of sample faces with two different finishes. One is more translucent than the other.
I just saw the photos ! It is incredible!!! She says: "There seems to already be some rumor about the dolls being unbreakable – this is untrue, and I do not claim this – please no throwing of dolls on the floor, I put a lot of work into them! but yes, unbreakable for all practical purpose of normal use, and yes, no shattering on an unfortunate collision impact." Anyway, it is totally breathtaking !!!! Can you imagine the effects that she can achieve now, using this material ? I see a sort of luminous white super delicate filigree doll... Sorry for my english, it was too much emotion
On the other had- if she sold the slip to all who want to make dolls from it- that would be worth a lot. Then if you add in tother things made of porcelain- plates, vases, other figurines- tons of money.
That's some excellent news! If I'm not mistaken the two girls here are her bigger dolls - I hope she will also offer her smaller models. The girl on the left is gorgeous...Moonglass looks shinier than regular porcelain.
