b.collins Studio dolls are delicate works of art, not toys, and therefore are not recommended for young children. Special care should be taken to keep your doll out of the reach of young children because many of the elements that make up the art dolls can easily present a choking hazard.
b.collins Studio dolls are made from various media including paper clay, polymer clay, wood and polyurethane resin, embellishments, and found objects.
Although some are more fragile than others, special care should always be taken when handling your doll. They are protected with shellac, but they are capable of being scuffed and should always be placed away from extreme temperatures and direct sunlight.
Assemblage/collage dolls are designed to be framed and will only be sold in a case, frame or shadow box so they can be property displayed and enjoyed as art.
No two dolls are the same. They are each a work of art. Imperfections, variations in color, facial expressions, measurements, fabrics, etc., should be expected. Fraying of fabrics, and fabric imperfections are also normal. Your doll will be unique, unlike machine-made mass-produced dolls and products.
Commissions are always welcome. The image and design of commissioned work remain the property of b.collins Studio.
