SOLD! Two More Dolls From my Charlcie Mold will be available on 6/20/19 @ Noon Eastern Time – The Very First Reproduction of Charlcie Is SOLD

IMG_2761 (2)SOLD This is my very first reproduction of Charlcie. The original doll is one that I purchased for my own collection, and is only an Izannah Walker head on a c.1900 baby doll cloth body, so I will be making her a new reproduction body. The antique Izannah Walker doll is named Charlcie, after my great-grandmother, Charlcie Savannah Suzybelle Walker.
This Charlcie is 23 inches tall. Her body is made of new 100% cotton, stuffed with organic cotton stuffing. Her head is pressed cloth and is made of silk stockinette, which has been painted with multiple layers of artist’s oils, as have her arms and legs. Her “second skin” body covering is made from antique raspberry pink glazed cotton. She is dressed entirely in antique fabrics, laces, and buttons. Her clothing includes a chemise, split pantelettes, a petticoat and a dress. The dress is made from an antique “double pink” print cotton. I drafted the pattern for the dress from an antique doll’s dress that I own, which supposedly belonged to an Izannah Walker doll at one time. The skirt of the dress has hand sewn cartridge pleating (at the top instead of gathers) just like to original dress. It took me approximately 115 hours (of actual working time) to create the doll and clothing. I made her using the same methods and same materials (with just one or two exceptions where the materials are no longer available and I’ve had to use modern equivalents) that Izannah Walker used to make the original dolls.
The little travel doll is strictly something extra that I made for this very first reproduction of Charlcie! I don’t sell the tiny dolls finished, but I do sell the pre-printed fabric for the tiny doll body  if you click here: https://asweetremembrance.com/category/cut-stitch-fabric-doll-panels/.

The Delores Smith Collection Auction at Withington’s on May 9th & 10th

IMG_2576 (2)
Delores, on April 12th, 2018, holding my Ismay. I used a mold of Ismay to create a reproduction Izannah Walker doll for Delores, based on her favorite Izannah “Ella”. ❤

Last year I had the opportunity to meet a very special person. Her name was Delores Smith. She was a quietly passionate doll lover, who not only collected, but created stunning clothing and accessories for her dolls.  Many of you may have known her through her job at Withington Auctions, where she was the doll specialist for 20 years. ❤

Delores asked me to make a reproduction Izannah Walker doll for her, based on Ella, a c. 1857 doll that she purchased in 2008 and later sold to another collector. The original Ella is a wonderful doll! Delores and I had such fun discussing all the little details of the doll I created for her. Together we sat down and looked through a box of antique fabrics that Delores had collected, weighing the pros and cons of each piece and finally deciding which should be used for the new doll’s dress.  Delores was such a delight to work for and I think she enjoyed our discussions about her doll as much as I did.

This is the finished doll I made for her ❤

There is a lovely article about Delores and her doll collection in the May issue of Antique Doll Collector magazine, which also tells the story of how she acquired the original Ella and a bit about the reproduction that I made for her.

 

On Thursday and Friday Withington Auction will be selling Delores’ amazing collection.

A Work in Progress ~A New Reproduction Izannah Walker Doll Comes to Life

Three little Charlcie's sitting in a row
Works in progress… The very first three reproductions of Charlcie. ❤ When finished they should be 23 inches tall!

 

As many of you probably know, I’ve been busy working on reproducing a very special Izannah Walker doll to coincide with the June Virtual Doll Convention 

Here is a tiny update on how my first reproductions of Charlcie are coming along…
The two part molded cloth heads have been joined together, then sewed onto a fabric shoulder covering, which was then attached to the doll’s torsos. As of late yesterday afternoon they have had four very thin layers of oil color applied to their heads and shoulders, and have the color blocked in on their eyes, cheeks and eyebrows. None of the fine details have been painted on their features yet. Painted curls and three more layers of paint on all the “skin” areas still to go! ☺️

I’m very happy to be one of the sponsors for the June Virtual Doll Convention. If you’d like to know more about the convention click here:

Izannah Walker Doll Making Kit · Izannah Walker Reproduction Doll · Third Thursdays · Where to Shop

Welcome to my Third Thursday for March ~ Celebrating the Joy of Creating!

Paula Walton's Izannah Walker Doll Making Kit
The perfect spring project ~ create a sweet reproduction Izannah Walker doll on the days that April Showers keep you inside, out of the garden ❤  Gather up your favorite fabrics, buttons and trimmings! I have several kits available to ship now, so that you can begin painting and sewing right away. 

I’m doing something a tiny bit different for this month’s release of new dolls… This month I’m focusing on something for those of you who long to experience the pleasure of creating an Izannah Walker doll yourself ❤ I’ve made up a bunch of my Izannah Walker Doll Making Kits and a few extra papier-mache heads, in case anyone who already has a kit, or my Izannah Walker Dollmaking Class, needs an additional head. Normally I make the kits one at a time, after you place your order, so there is a wait of at least 5 weeks before they ship.

I have four full kits and three extra heads that can ship out on Monday. After those are gone any additional orders will be made to order and won’t ship out for at least 5 weeks. If you want me to paint your papier-mache head it will take at least 2 additional weeks, but may take more because I’m just swamped with orders at the moment, and I have a few surprises in the works too!

You may order and check out below. If it turns out that I’ve already sold the kits and heads I have on hand, I’ll email you and you can decide if you’d like to wait for me to make you a kit/head, or if  you’d prefer to cancel your order. If you want to place a kit/head on lay-away email me at paula@asweetremembrance.com.

 

Izannah Walker Doll Making Kit

Have you always wanted to try your hand at making a reproduction Izannah Walker doll? If so, this kit is for you! My kit will enable you to make a faithful representation of an 18 inch antique Izannah Walker doll. This new kit is less challenging than my Izannah Walker Doll Making Class, which teaches you to make Izannah’s traditional pressed cloth heads. Instead, the kit comes with a molded composition head, cast in a mold made directly from Isane, an antique Izannah Walker doll in my collection. Also included in the kit are patterns for the doll’s body, under garments and two dresses plus a 31-page instruction booklet filled with detailed color photographs. This kit is suggested for experienced seamstresses who are also well versed in painting with oils. KITS WILL SHIP FROM MY STUDIO APPROXIMATELY 5 - 9 WEEKS AFTER YOU PLACE YOUR ORDER.

$200.00

 

 

Izannah Walker Doll Making Kit with Painted Head

If you do not feel confident enough to paint the doll’s head yourself, you may commission me to paint it for you. This will require at least an additional two weeks. SHIPS FROM MY STUDIO APPROXIMATELY 7 - 12 WEEKS AFTER YOU PLACE YOUR ORDER.

$375.00

Additional Molded Composition Heads for use with Izannah Walker Doll Making Kit

Want to make another doll?  Buy a second head to use with the patterns and instructions in your kit. If you would also like me to paint the head, at least two more weeks will be required.
