They are made of resin called "Velvet Touch Resin." It feels like velvet, looks like composition-fiberglass (which real mannequins are made of) and is specially designed to give the dolls weight.
All our dolls are individually painted by hand so no two are alike. On average a face paint requires 14 different colors using several painting techniques. An airbrush tool is then used to create face blush and body blush. We use several colors to give more detail and depth on each doll.
Dolls are sealed and protected with Mr. Super Clear sealer with UV protection. But like any paint, it may rub off over time from handling. We recommend you use a soft paint brush when dusting.
Unfortunately there are no vinyls, plastics or resins that are stain resistant. We do however use some designing techniques on the fashions to help prevent staining white lining is used when applicable and color linings are set with high heat to help prevent staining. All socks and gloves are pre-washed. If any staining does occur it will wipe clean with a damp cloth or magic eraser.
Each doll on the market has a particular body shape. We design all our fashions to fit the contours for our dolls, so a fashion could end up being loose or tight if put on another doll. If one of our fashions is too large on another doll simply use tissue paper (Kleenex) to create small pads to fill the areas where the fashion is to large. Fashions will not fit Tonner dolls.
There are 16 points of articulation. Heads open up so you can move the eye positions or completely change their eye color.
Dolls are strung using strong elastic cord. in the event of breakage or becoming loose a new cord can be installed with little effort. Rubber grips are placed in the joints for dolls to hold their poses.
Vivian's wigs are high temp synthetic mohair .They can be recombed and styled. Monty's wigs are faux fur and too can be washed and recombined.
We created the telescope stand after watching various dolls tumble at the slightest touch. To help reduce this problem we simply used one hollow rod which is in the base and a solid rod which is set inside the hollow tube. A saddle at the top gives the proper support so your doll can pose.
Although we appreciate suggestions, our policy does not allow us to accept for review or consideration any ideas or suggestions not specifically solicited by our subsidiaries or us. Our intention is to avoid misunderstandings when projects are created internally which might be similar to submissions made to us from outside D.A.E. Originals. We recognize that this policy is sometimes a disappointing one expecially to a collector, with all the best intentions, who would simply like us to consider their own suggestion. Experience has taught us, though, that if we abandon our policy for one person, we will soon have no policy at all. Therefore, as required, we will not retain any copies of any suggestions. We hope that this policy explains this decision.
