How they are made!  Renata's dolls are small - usually in the 12" inch size or under. They are true works of art. Also note, The clothign on the majority of her dolls is all hand sculpted! It looks like fabric but it is not always! See below!

From Renata - My dolls are made from polymer clay over a wire armature. I use Cernit and Fimo as I find those clays very reliable, and strong. I paint all my dolls with Genesis heat set paint, I find after baking in the oven the paint looks bright and really part of the clay.  It has a nice matt finish. I mainly use silk and occasionally man made fibres to clothe my dolls.  I use Alpaca for my dolls hair as it is very fine and soft and sometimes I use viscose fibre which is also very fine.I make my own eyes, they are resin with a clear resin dome over coloured clay for small figures. For the larger ones I use a resin eye with a Swarovski crystal cabochon for the dome which is painted with heat resistant glass paint.

  bio:

 

Artist biography: Renata lives  in Warrington, England with her husband.  She is 51 and has one daughter and a grandson of three. She  worked as a textile designer for 12 years until the design industry moved towards computer design.  She had been very old school with her paints and brushes.  After that Renata spent a year teaching herself to paint in oils which she really enjoyed but then her daughter wanted to make bracelets to sell at her school for charity and she thought it would be fun to sculpt little faces for them out of fimo. She researched sculpting faces on the internet and found one of a kind figures.  From that moment on she said she was obsessed. She had never sculpted before but she found it felt more natural to her than painting.

 

Renata has been sculpting one of a kind figures for about 15 years  and she said she still gets excited for every new project. She just loves it! She said she always finds ways to include as much painting into her figures as she can by giving them large tattoos and I she goes back to her roots as a textile designer as often as she can by painting as many flowers as she can on her figures!

 

Renata has primarily worked in the 11'-12' inch size because her bodies are fully sculpted; however, recently she has created in the 15" scale. She may also in the future work with some cloth and clay pieces to increase the size to 18". Right now, orders would be 15" maxium.

2018 work - PORTRAIT WORK FOR THE "KINGS OF LEON" BAND - COVER OF ALBUM - looking for your own portrait work? Contact kmalone@dollery.com or call 781-248-2464
 

Painting the Clouds - this was a custom project which we worked on with Renata in 2018 for the famous band the "Kings of Leon" - this was our first amazing project with Renata. The band used images of the dolls as they were being sculpted to promote their new album cover and then she finished each doll for each band member with their custom instruments which they currently own privately. They requested the heads be able to float in milk! It was a fie month project that turned out amazing!

Below are some of the photos

Note- Renata is an expert in doing custom portrait type dolls - she has done many famous stars and portrait pieces. If you are interested in portrait work- email kmalone@dollery.com
