I made her a few months ago, and forgot to post pictures, then. I can't wait to start making more creepy porcelain dolls. Does anyone know of any way of cracking their faces, withot the use of a hammer?? (haha, wow that sonds macabre!)  Roll Eyes

you could try filling it with water and then freezing it...
those dolls are creepy enough, way to make them more extra spooky!

you could try wrapping them in a towel and stepping on them.

hitting it with a nail may get more precise cracks

Yeah that's what I did with this doll. I guess i'll stick with that method.

I think it would be cool to look for dolls that are already cracked, since then they have even more of a story/creepyness from not knowing how it happened. Other than that, the hammer is probably your best bet. Also, (sorry if this is annoying but I have to mention it) please check for brand marks on any old dolls to make sure you're not cracking something very rare/valuable.
I really like the idea. I think dolls like this would scare the heck out of me if I had them. Did you paint over the eyes or remove them?

Hahah, don't worry, I got the porcelain dolls, 2 for $10 at walgreens, I would never break something vintage like that.

well if you just want to age them, use that crackle effect paint, with a tan under n the skin tone on top, and maybe for real cracks u could use a chisel and a rubber mallet? like if you dont want it to really break much and just crack?

you could try warming up the dolls head in hot water, and then putting it in icewater.  I've broken lots of stuff like that.   Roll Eyes
