Welcome to the Brand New Website and Blog Spot hosted by MacPherson Arts and Crafts.
My name is Kristie Carwithen. Better known as KrisC, the artist from The Dainty Loft. I am first and foremost a collector. I love everything there is about dolls and the art behind making them. I appreciate all the hard work and heart-motivated efforts it takes to be a creator and seller and always keep this in mind when I am a buyer.
Next, I am an artist and have been working with vinyl reborns since 2004 and then silicone dolls since 2005. In a world where there were no tutorials, blogs or YouTube videos to teach me how silicone works and paints, I learned by trial and error. A lot of trial and error. I am still learning. But I am extremely dedicated to the learning process and ultimately achieving the very best art I can offer. Just this summer, with MacPherson’s, I launched my own artist line of silicone paints called SiliconeFX to help others to learn as well. Now, we have this blog!
I am very excited about the opportunity to write here. The making and collecting of silicone dolls have soared in recent years and with great interest over the realism in both visual detail and incredible feel, we still need to learn more about them. This will be the place to do that! I hope for it to be dedicated to educating collectors and artists alike on all the ins and out of silicone.
To all readers, please feel free to write to us with your questions and we will try to answer them in a post.

Our goal is to encourage one another to grow and create in the journey of silicone. There is so much fun to be had!!! We all can have a share in making our doll community successful and a beautiful place to share in!
So lets begin……
