Ball Jointed Opalescent, the Dragon by vonBorowsky Ball Jointed Opalescent, the Dragon by vonBorowsky
*SOLD*
Watch a video of this doll being posed!

THE BEST DOLL FROM 2012 - of my creations, this is the best of this year.

Finally finished!
It is a ball jointed dragon made out of cold porcelain.
By the pictures you can see how poseable it is!
All the different colors of this doll were made using different colors of clay: the marbled on the horns and legs, the gradient on the tail, everything!
This poseable figure were all handmade by me, from scratch. No molds were used. The eyes are also handmade.
It is a one of a kind ball jointed doll, there is no other like this in the world!
I decided to keep this doll for me, as I just keep the ones that had problems or something! I may stay with a good one, don't I? So I will keep this one, unless, maybe, if someone make a good offer.

I forgot to mention that the white stripes on the legs were painted! But just these ones!

Work in progress pictures of this doll can be seen here: vonborowsky.deviantart.com/gal…

I love the way he came out. Great colors gradients and the joints look superb (more on that momentarily). However I think he could use wings, or a mane/back tines since the horns are so imposing that he seems a bit naked along his back. Or even a tail spike or some tuft somewhere.

Now back to the joints, You really out did yourself with his legs and feet. He is so dainty. Absolutely impressive. And the eyes look wonderful as well. I don't even know why I am writing all this since your work is great.

I suppose my only real critique is to keep it up and take more risks and add complicated features to your dolls that have so many joints.

But all in all he is a cutie and a good choice to keep for yourself!

I know I will love her, the colors and everything are just great!

I am a little curious, now that I read about cold porcelain, do you use any kind of sealant to make them waterproof? I real online if the cold porcelain gets wet it can fall apart. (Not that I plan to put it in water!) Just wondering. If not I can always use some sealant after she arrives. I always worry about little things like that.

I have dolls I've made since long time ago and nothing bad happens, just if you put it inside the water or throw water on the dolls.
Maybe if you have that MSC you could try it but I never used and I don't know if it works yet

Nossa, ele posa muuito ~ E curto tanto esses chifres que faz, parece doce *-*, e hora ou outra ainda vou pedir p/ fazer desse olhos p/ mim ,porque acho que ficam mui bons :heart: ~Uma dúvida , as partes das garrinhas e detalhes em branco não tem perigo de se soltar~~ ? =< (sempre que vou fazer algo em biscuit e tento colar partes separadas acabam se soltando depois aff T.T)

Realmente os chifres parecem docinho Hahaha XD
Estou em falta de um tipo de resina que vai ficar boa nos olhos, mas que infelizmente tem que importar e custa uma fortuna... Mas, no futuro, eu pretendo fazer olhos inteiramente de resina, quem sabe um pouco maiores que estes n.n
Não, nada tem perigo de soltar, está bem fixo. Também costumava cair nas minhas bonecas antigas XD
