Timber the Little Deer Ball Jointed Doll 13


Meet Timber, the little deer Ball Jointed Doll. Timber is completely handmade by me, without the use of any molds. Each piece is carefully sculpted. It means it is an one of a kind creation, no copies were taken. It is a unique piece. 

The doll is made out of cold porcelain, and air dry clay (that isn't fragile as the name "porcelain" suggests, but actually it is flexible). This material doesn't get yellow over the sun light, as resin does. Timber is a tiny little doll, measuring 15cm in height. It was painted with pastels and airbrushed, and sealed. It has pieces of felt in some joints to protect the painting. Faceplate, tail and antlers are attached with magnets, and the last one goes in two colors: white and brown. The eyes are handmade with cold porcelain clay and glass cabochons and can be changed if wanted, but no one fits better than the handmade ones, in the artist opinion. It has human eyelashes, that are glued on and can't be removed. The doll is able to stand by itself and a doll stand is not needed, in most cases. It has the ability to assume many positions, but it's only allowed to post five pictures on this announce, which aren't enough.

Artist words: "this is my second attempt to make an anthro doll (animal that stands in two legs). It was supposed to be a simple project, but I ended up making it very complex. I have started on June and finished in December. Therefore, I have spent six months working on this project. I made the face completely different from my normal style, and I must admit it came up lovely! With the additions of eyelashes for the first time, it was just the cherry of the cake. I have worked hard remaking and remaking pieces until I thought it was perfect. You have no idea of how much work and love were into creating this cute little thing. Timber is a male, in my opinion, but everyone thinks it is a female. I think it is still growing up to decide which one to be, and it's new owner will be able to help in this decision. For the first time I have made a beautiful custom box to go with the doll too, which is a great addition, in my opinion. Timber deserves a good home to go. Everyone who meets him fall in love with the cuteness, and I myself, every time I open it's box, can just say "awww". I am sure he will be a great addition to someone's collection, a truly unique piece."
