I've been enjoying making primitives lately, but as always I don't seem to follow the priming rules. I don't really care for the "country" style of prims so I've decided to make prims on my terms. This is the first of many large prim dolls that will be going on my Etsy shop soon.

This is a self made pattern. I make all my own patterns for my prims. She is 24 inches from the tip of her hat to the bottom of her boots. Entirely freehand painted.


The lace and ribbon used is vintage and tea stained by me.


Showing her little striped stocking and pointy boots.


Close up of her face.


Thanks for looking!  Smiley

A prim or primitive doll can be any kind or style of doll. This particular style is made from plain unbleached muslin and then I paint it using acrylic paints. I then sand it with sandpaper to create wear patterns and then tea/coffee stain the doll. Sometimes I repeat the sanding and staining depending on the look I'm going for. There are all kinds of prims online. Do a quick little search and you'll get some great examples.
