Feature Friday: Simply Amazing

Today, I spent my Friday in a coffee shop relaxing and surfing the internet. My latest interest is clay....more specifically cold clay or also called cold porcelain. I saw a few beautiful pieces of jewelry made of this material and it got me searching for DIY recipes online.

However, amongst my search, I found a truly amazing artist, Ms. Marina Bychkova, who creates the most wonderful, amazing dolls! Although, the materials used for her creations are not cold clay but resin, porcelain or polymer clay.

The images of her dolls shown here are from her blog -
where you can find more details about the dolls she has created and more.

She also has a website:
where you can see a beautiful gallery of her creations, jewelries, doll accessories, doll info such as her doll process, customizing orders, contact info.

Ms. Marina gave her dolls identity by naming them after Paul Gallico's fictional, short story called "Enchanted Doll" where a woman makes dolls that enchant people at first sight with their life like beauty and details. I must say, Ms. Marina's Enchanted Dolls has more than surpassed that goal!

The features of her dolls are astoundingly realistic and each is very detailed from the features of the face, 

to the anatomically correct body parts,


and ornate body art/tatoos!

However, she even goes beyond that by giving her dolls intricate accessories such as ornate jewelry and luxuriously beautiful garments and gowns.

And if you are lucky enough to have one of these dolls, don't forget to get one of these gorgeous tins to keep them in

Each doll is dreamy and you can ask for certain customization such as skin tone, lip color, hair color, freckles, etc. 

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to do an interview with the artist. However, I did find a previous interview in PopCultureOfDestruction's blog - click here to get more info on Ms. Marina and her beautiful creations.

Right now, Ms. Marina is not taking new orders because she is preparing for upcoming shows. Until that time, I hope I can save up to order my very own!

  5. These are so incredible! I was trying to find on her website how much they are, but couldn't find out since (as you said) she's not taking orders. I'm sure they're pricey, but the details are so amazing. Those faces! Great find!

  6. Yeah I wanted to know how much as well so I can save up for one of those pretty dolls!
