VELVET COATS are one of our most popular items for accenting dolls and so much more. Velvet Coats are a powdered velvet (no they are not flocking). They are perfect for lining boxes and also for accent areas on dolls, such as the fur trim shown on the Bonnet Dolls above. They come in 16 exciting colors with 16 matching water-based adhesives to go with them.
The Bonnet Dolls were done in three stages. First we blocked in the basic outfit colors with our Spanish Oils before the first firing. Black Designer Strokes was used on the pedestal. We also painted the face and hair to give them a nice base color. After firing to cone 6 we china painted the features and fired them to cone 019. After the second firing we applied the adhesive and sprinkled on the velvet texture to make the fir trim look like real fir. The shoes on the bottom right were also base coated in Designer Strokes, but in Mahogany and fired to the cone 6. Next we glazed only the bottom of the shoe and refired to cone 04-05. Then we fired on the bright gold and finally we applied the Velvet Texture.
Below on the right is a detailed porcelain box by Shiloh Molds (see the links page for their contact information). It was cast in one of our pale lavender porcelains and fired. Then we lined the inside of the box, the bottom, and the detail on the lid. To line a box is simple. Use a large brush and quickly paint the entire inside of the box. Make sure it all looks wet. Dump in the texture, swish it around to cover the inside and dump out on computer paper or other high quality paper. The texture sticks to newspaper.
