I am about to make my first cloth doll as part of the Junker Jane swap once I get my partner (yay!), and so I have been researching some art doll and stuffie techniques...

I came across something cool and strange, and I am curious if anyone on here has tried it:

A crafter was telling me that she makes cloth dolls, stuffed, sewn, and all painted with acrylics, and then paints them with a wash of strong espresso and cinnamon. Then, she puts the dolls in the oven (low temp, i guess) to kind of bake in and "set" the stain...

anyone try this stain? anyone put dolls in the oven?

thanks Smiley

Make it, thrift it, mend it, or make-do without it!

I can't speak for setting a stain, but I have just began making Poppets and you bake the stuffed head with clay in the nose.  I did a stuffed head at 275 for 20 minutes and everything was fine.
