Her one-of-a-kind dolls are sculpted in ProSculpt, a polymer clay developed by doll artist jack Johnston. ProSculpt was developed specifically for the use in artists dolls for its malleability, strength, and color.
The sculpting media used for her porcelain dolls is water-based clay, with the exception of some accessory pieces which are sculpted using Polymer Clay (Cernit). All pieces are sculpted, refined and molded by the artist to produce a waste mold. The pieces are then cast in porcelain,low-fired, cleaned and refined to produce another mold, commonly known as the "Artist Work Mold". Using the work mold, the final piece is cast in porcelain, cleaned and direct-sculpted to add the detail and refinements not possible during the molding process.
Each porcelain piece undergoes numerous stages of cleaning and firing to obtain the smoothness of high-quality porcelain. Firings range from a low-fire to the final bisque stage, and repeated low firings during the china painting process. She typically chooses to pour her pieces in white porcelain and add the washes required to obtain the desired glow and effect of fine-quality porcelain dolls, although some are presented in the flesh tones without a wash.
The artist work mold allows approximately 100 castings prior to disintegration resulting from the casting process. This provides for Limited Edition pieces in the quantity the artist chooses, with a recommended maximum of 100/ mold, based on the number of pourings/day and care-taking of the mold.
