Lux Dolls are my own line of small 6.5 inch tall (approx. depending on hair and stands etc.) artist pressure cast resin strung ball jointed dolls. After designing and engineering this doll I sculpted all of her parts over a long period of time, tweaking and refining, I then made my own molds (that’s a vast area for study :o), learned how to pressure cast with resin (a learning curve all it’s own I can assure you – quite a lot of resin wound up in the trash!) and then stringing, sanding, finishing, painting, dressing and wigging.
It’s been a really terrific ride and all of that work now pays off because I can make dolls! My newest LuxDoll is based of the incredible graphics of Ã‰rte. This artist was prolific in the areas of costume design and set design and his work is all executed and presented with an unparallelled sense of style, design, colour and imagination. If you’re not familiar with his work, do look him up. There are images all over the web. Back to my little doll though 🙂
She’s resides is a sanctuary of beads. Strung by hand, they hang down all around her from her golden wood and lamÃ© and rhinestone headdress. The headdress, entirely hand made also has an attached ponytail that reaches to the floor. Her headdress can be removed and she is bald underneath, suitable for wigging. She has 14 points of articulation and can displayed in many natural looking poses. Her light skintone is custom tinted resin. I have extensively shaded and blushed her entire body. She has painted finger and toenails. Her facial features are all hand painted by me and all of her paint and shading is sealed with multiple coats of MSC uv protectant matte sealer. She is wearing a short golden open work ribbon and under this she has tiny gold lamÃ© panties and gold stretch across the bust. She has her own regal wood stand. Gold painted goal post style stand to accommodate her heavy and substantial wood and bead (and hair) headdress. It is stepped and painted gold and has a deep red and black brocade pillow with gold and white trim.
Her name is Deco
