Customer Sue Daniel drew a mustache on a cotton face using several layers of ink. She used a regular hair dryer set on high for a few seconds and the ink disappeared completely.

1-1/4 ounce Applicator Bottle
with 2 Tips Perfect for precision applications of glue, 3D Crystal Lacquer, paints and other substances.
Seam Strengthening Technique Taught by Judy Skeel and Gloria “Mimi” Winer
Because Grrrip Glue is a little stretchier than other white glues when dry, it is the perfect substance for strengthening any seam in a doll body, particularly those subject to extra stress and blowouts such as the fingers and the center seam of the face.
Transfer the Grrrip Glue into the applicator bottle.
Apply a tiny line of glue directly onto the thread line. Don’t use a lot, but be sure it is a continuous line from wrist to wrist going along all the fingers. This is also how you repair a clipped a thread from trimming the fingers.
With your thumb lightly apply pressure on the thread line and pull away to the edge of the seam allowance to spread the glue. This will make a thin coating of glue embedded into the fibers to strengthen the seam allowance that will still have a little “give” when turning and stuffing. Repeat for the second side.
Allow the fingers to dry before trying to turn them so you don’t glue them closed!
Follow the same steps for the center seam of the face and you’ll be amazed at the difference this makes in strengthening the seams and helping the center face seam to be less obvious.
This non-toxic, water based super glue bonds to metals, plastic, painted surfaces, glass, wood, leather, fabric and more! Usable as liquid glue or as contact cement when both surfaces are coated, allowed to dry clear and then pressed together.
This glue is used by SHERRY GOSHON for all of her pressmold projects.

Proportional Scale What every dollmaker needs when resizing patterns!
Instructions IncludedPrice $5.00
Making Doll Accessories To Scale
You can use a Proportional Scale to determine the size an accessory needs to be to be in scale with the doll. On the inner wheel find the number 65. This is the height of an average female (5'5"). If you are making a male use 70" (5'10"). On the outer wheel find the size of the doll you wish to make, for example 16". Place the 65 and 16 together and don't move anything. To determine what size an accessory should be measure the life-sized object, find that measurement on the inner wheel, and the outer wheel will tell you how big it needs to be to fit the doll you are making. In the example above, an umbrella measures 36", the 16" doll needs one about 8-1/2" long. A wooden spoon measures 12", the 16" doll needs one a little less than 3" long. This way you can be sure all accessories are to scale.
How To Use A Proportional Scale Wheel
This round slide ruler, used by engineers, architects, artists, publishers, and other professionals who need to create accurate enlargements and reductions, consists of two wheels held together in the middle by an open rivet. The inner wheel is labeled "size of original" and it has a window which says "percentage of original size" and "number of times of reduction". The outer wheel is labeled "reproduction size". To use the wheel take the size of the existing pattern (e.g. 12" doll) and find that measurement on the inner wheel. Line up that number with the size the finished pattern needs to be (e.g. 18" doll). In the window labeled "percentage of original size" it says you need to enlarge the pattern by 150%. Go to your copy machine, set it to 150% enlargement, and copy the original pattern. To reduce a pattern (e.g. 12" doll to 10" doll), line up 12" on inner wheel with 10" on outer wheel, and you need to reduce pattern 83%. When using this method be sure to only enlarge or reduce the template which is made by tracing the sewing lines of the pattern - do not include the seam allowance. As you reduce or enlarge a pattern the seam allowance changes, and what started out as ¼" seam may end up being a lot larger or smaller. Add seam allowances (if needed) after copying the pattern.
