    Lol, I didn't misunderstand, I just forgot to answer that question! :rolleyes: Sorry!

    I have used both leather-lining of the joints (very thin suede) and also acrylic on my dolls and I have to say that I MUCH prefer acrylic for a few reasons, the most important ones being- 1) it doesn't show but makes the joints work much better and 2) it is a much better choice for dolls the size of mine. The thinnest leather I could find turned out to be still too thick! Acrylic works beautifully, it's more flexible and it doesn't "unglue" itself from the porcelain (unlike leather sometimes).

    Is it a 2 part acrylic mixture like the kind on picture pendants?

    Actually, this one isn't, it's just matt acrylic (I'll check at home the exact description; I'm away from the UK now). Hope this helps a little?

    I am absolutely amazed! Beautiful incredible dolls. And those tiny hands and feet must be so time consuming to make.
    I especially love the dusky maiden.
