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).
