Quick Question: Anybody interested in sanding and sueding as services?


A Quick Question: Would any of you be interested in seam-sanding and sueding as separate services for orders placed last year (and also future orders, natch)?? Depending on interest I would have to bring in some help, but I would love to be able to offer these extra services so that you can choose whether you want to DIY to bond with your doll or let us do it for you, so you receive her tweaked and tuned and ready to play with…

Seam-sanding would clock in at around €100 (its quite a few hours work done by hand and with care and attention).

Sueding (for now still done with pliver/leather, but vegan-friendly materials are being investigated) would cost €75.

I am not sure about offering sueding without sanding, as if you decide to sand later it would probably not have a very good effect on the leather (as wet-sanding is recommended to reduce dust and improve efficacy of polishing).

    As far as I’m concerned – generally, yes, I’d be interested. It depends on how notable the seams are. If they’re barely there I’m usually not bothered by seams. However, it’s always nice to have the option to have seams removed. As for sueding – I think it’s a great option to add, too. I personally won’t need it (most likely) since I’m not doing much with my dolls except for having them standing or sitting there and looking pretty. 🙂

    Definitely interested in sueding, from my experience from haru, the Seams won’t be so bad but hey if I have the budget I’ll try to get that as well

    I only own dolls that are tan or darker and I also plan on owning some grey dolls in the future, so a seam sanding service doesn’t generally apply to people like me. That’s not to say I wouldn’t absolutely LOVE a seamless doll, but colored resin (any colors other than white/ns yellow/ns pink) gets so discolored from seam sanding that the obviousness of it

    As for sueding, I like to do that myself. There are dolls out there that absolutely need to be sueded (glares at new tan Unoa doll) but there are others that don’t need it. In fact, out of the 14 (million) dolls I own only 2 would really benefit from any sort of sueding; hot glue or otherwise.

    Quick question: so all dolls from long layway order so far came with no seam sanding removal?

    Honestly I had kinda assumed seem sanding was part of it too but I guess I do understand labor wise why it would not be now. I really don’t notice many seams on my white Ingenue…except a very unfortunate one right across her…lady parts lol. Which I’ve been a bit intimidated to try and correct myself.
    I absolutely would have paid for her to be pliver sueded though. (Though I realize this is all a mote point now since I was one of the fortunate ones to have already received her doll)

    When I am able to get a teal girl in the future, I would definitely spring for the seam sanding. I do not want to sand teal myself.

    Since I’m getting a doll in vivid I guess it doesn’t really apply since it’s a darker resin? But to me how ever I did assume it was all Included ~ I thought it would of been mentioned other wise but this is purely my view :)!! I’d only ever buy the seam removal if the seams were really horribly noticeable though 🙂 I’m hoping not the case with the vivid.

    My inner cheapskate is going “No, do it yourself! Save money!”, but the chances of me actually doing it myself are pretty slim – faceups take me long enough! I know I’d like my Ingenue sueded but I have no idea where to get pliver or what I’m doing. I like the idea of sanded seams; the only doll of mine that arrived with sanded seams is a Resinsoul and it does look much better, especially compared with some of the seams on my Iplehouse girls. Since the pink dolls are still in the production queue, it would give me time to put some money aside for my girl – I feel like if I don’t have it done before she arrives, it probably won’t ever get done!

    I wondered about seeding for the long layaway girls. The pink hasn’t arrived yet, I believe or gone to face up. do they need sanding? these two are my first, so I am not sure if they do. Excited to see them. I waiting for years to find just the right ones:) and you created them. Glad I found you!
