Porcelain Doll Making Tip
It is best to cast doll body parts in the same porcelain as the head. If you use a different slip for some parts, you might have problems with different shrinkage and in matching the colors. In general, limbs on DDP dolls should preferably be cast in porcelain. This way they may also be shaded and blushed to enhance the appearance of the doll.
