Custom Portrait Doll Information
If you would like to stop time.... you can have a very close rendition of a certain person made into a "true" portrait doll. This type of doll is made by sculpting an original likeness in clay to get a very good likeness for the portrait doll. After the head is sculpted and likeness is achieved, a rough plaster mold is made from the original sculpt. After the drying time of the mold, usually 10-14 days, a porcelain doll is made from this. Sculpted dolls are one of a kind and will be 95% or closer to the portrait used. These dolls are the buyer's choice and can be any size up to 32". This type of doll runs $1800 and duplicates can be made for $900. Here is a link to this type of doll or existing mold portrait dolls: www.dollhaven.net/custom.html.
