Stages of Porcelain Dolls and Miscellaneous
Greenware
SOFT-FIRED GREENWARE STAGE (SFGW) -  Soft Fired is the first
stage and is low fired to cone 018 so it can be immersed in water to be
able to work dust free. Cutouts for eyes, pierced ears, and seams
cleaning etc happens at this stage. Imperfections are corrected at this
stage before firing in kiln to cone 6.
SFGW requires minimum 3-4 weeks minimum from date of payment.

BISQUE STAGE - Porcelain is high-fired to cone 6 to reach the bisque
stage. At this stage the porcelain is fired for painting.  It is now ready to
be sanded and polished for china painting.
Bisque parts require minimum 4-6 weeks from date of payment.

PAINTED STAGE - Painted bisque has been thru the SFGW stage  and
the Bisque stage.  The bisque is china painted at this stage and painted
according to doll artist or photo of antique or vintage doll.  Then the
porcelain goes thru more firings, as necessary, to cones 017 & 018. This
is the third stage of completion in the doll making process.
Minimum 6-8 weeks to complete from date of payment.
