Nini Doll xii - Sunday Best is arriving very soon! / by Jonathan Hayes

Dear Nini Friends,

I hope you are all well. I've had a little break in the last few weeks, my first proper holiday for a few years, but still managed to find time for some Nini Doll creativity!

Nini Doll xii 'Sunday Best' is the first Nini I've made with a darker skin colour and I'm very excited about her. She's an African-American girl, inspired by some absolutely stunning photographs from the 1950s, all dressed up in her finest clothes. I have posted various photographs of her progress to her gallery page and now that her face is painted (and what a lovely experience that was) she's just waiting for me to make her wig and shoes. I'm hoping to finish her this week and send out an email to everyone on the mailing list offering her for 'adoption'. If you're not yet on the list, please do not hesitate to contact me at I'd love to hear from you and you'll be amongst the very first to be offered the opportunity to buy her. 

I have three other Nini heads also cast and ready for future dolls. Please keep checking in the website and click the links to the Nini Doll Facebook page, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and Flickr (links are shown as symbols at the top left of the web page). I'm constantly up-loading progress photographs and I hope you enjoy them.

Very best wishes and thank you again for your interest and support.
