Five black kitties wait for trick-or-treaters, purring contentedly alongside their jack-o-lanterns. This Halloween nesting doll will be the purrfect October gift for the cat lover who enjoys decorating for the fall season. Nesting doll collectors will prize it year round. Pay careful attention to the catchy eye color of these spooky felines!
Production Techniques: Hand Painting/ Decoupage. This nesting doll was carved in the Upper Volga region, the Russian center of nesting doll carving. The carved pieced were assembled, doll inside a doll, then delivered to the workshop in St. Petersburg, Russia. The artists first hand paint the background, then apply various detailed elements, such as faces, which we print on a very thin vinyl adhesive. Such elements are reproduced original works of art we make specifically for nesting doll design. It is the artist’s magic brush that blends the two forms of artwork together into a unified piece. Finally we baptize each doll in multiple layers of non-toxic water-based lacquer to make a marvelous matryoshka that will delight children and collectors.
