Frequently Asked Questions, Answered

I thought I’d take the opportunity to cover a few of the regular questions I am asked about my miniature handmade people.

How big are they?
Most of my miniature dolls are 12th scale (called 1 inch scale in the US). This means that they are 1/12 the size of the real thing. So an average man is about 6 inches tall.

I do make other scales as well. I have made 24th scale, which is half the size of the above. This would make them about 3 inches tall.

The beauty of all my dolls being completely handmade and bespoke, is that I can make them any size to your requirements. If your dolls house is a particular or rare scale, then I can make custom made people to live there.

Do you make them all from scratch? Are they moulds?
The dolls are all handmade, each body part sculpted, painted and assembled by hand. I make all the clothes and add their hair. There are no moulds used, so each one is completely unique.

What are they made from?
They are made from polymer clay. My current favourite is Fimo Doll Art.

How much do they cost?
This very much depends on what the customer wants, any materials I have to source and how much work is involved. Therefore I will discuss with you your exact requirements until we both agree on what we’re aiming for, before agreeing a price. Why not contact me today? dolls@sarahcoupland.co.uk
