Thanks!  Cheesy They're a lot of fun to make and my daughter really loves to get them! 'Homemade' trumps all other kinds of gifts.

WOAH! That's pretty cool.. the doll was pretty creepy to begin with! Smiley
He was definitely the most mischievous looking of the available dolls that day.  Tongue I figured he was gonna be a good little demon baby.

Great choice to start with!  Those babies freak me out as is.  Wink 

I love the demon horns and the devil duck.  They really make it!  I wish my mom was as awesome as you.  (She used to worry about me and tell me not to read scary books.  I missed out on some classic horror flicks until I moved out too...)

I think for most people the unknown combined with our imaginations is far scarier than anything that ever made it to the movie screen. I had a couple co-workers fairly aghast after looking at pics of this doll on my blog. One insisted that when she has kids nothing of this nature will be allowed in her home.  Roll Eyes So it's great that I can post a project like this here and see other people react to it for what it is; a really fun craft project.

I think children have a much easier time dealing with "creepy" things than adults actually do. The children ( 4 and 8 years old at the time) of my american host family had a lot of fun with my halloween-decoration-come-alive room when I lived there. And children since then have seemed to be more interested by than scared of the gravestone,skull and bones decorations still lying around.
Great job at bringing out the inner demon of this baby-doll, it looks a lot more , shall we say honest (?) now.
And could you please tell me if you used some particular kind of paint? The experiments I have started with painting on plastic have all disintegrated after a while...

Hi BirdBones Thank you  Smiley I agree, children are fascinated by so-called scary things. It's really a disservice we do to them when we keep them from experiencing things like this simply because we believe they are unable to understand it. They're much better at changing and adapting their attitudes then we are.

I pain on vinyl dolls with regular acrylics from the craft store, building up the finish of the doll in layers. Usually 4-5 layers of paint in total. Then I seal the doll in a mixture of thinned out ModPodge Hardcoat & water. When the first coat of sealant is dry I add more glue and seal it again. Repeating the process usually about 4 times. This seems to hold up quite well. My daughter plays with her dolls but she is fairly gentle and loving with them. They are her babies after all.

Don't hesitate to ask if I can answer any other questions for you!  Grin

BirdBones, depending on where you are, do you have craftshops in your area? Mod Podge is a brand name.
a Google delivered this:
Kleber und Holzleim auf PVAc(Polyvinylazetat)- Basis

Der Kleber ist im flssigen Zustand wei, trocknet dann halb oder ganz transparent auf.
http://www.google.ie/imgres?imgurl=http:

Gibts in Deutschland unter anderen als Uhu Holzleim und Pattex Holzleim

Auer zum direkten Kleben kann man diesen Typ Kleber auch fr Papier-Mach benutzen, oder mit Wasser- und Plakafarben mischen, um diese wasserresistent zu machen.

Short of that, you could PM me and I could send you Mod Podge by snailmail from Holland.
