After years of development, we're pleased to announce we have produced the ultimate in Halloween matryoshkas. A ghoulish witch hides under her cloak, a skeleton, a vampire drinking a bloody Mary, a black cat, and her pet spider Igor. The craftsmanship is excellent, the glittery accents perfect. This Halloween doll will cast a spell over you. Just right for one night.
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.
