Peg Doll Bases
Most of the peg doll bases that I use come from a shop called Early American Shop. The owner (Doug) is a really nice guy, and I love the various sizes he has. Make sure to check out his shop in Etsy and show him some love!
There are a few collections of peg dolls that come from a store called Søstrene Grene. This is a store located in my current country of Denmark.
These are the peg shapes I started out with when I created the first peg dolls for my little ones. I still use them for certain collections. I really do like the shapes of these pegs, the wider base helps them stand in all kinds of environments.
Most of the paints I use are the Galaxy brand of Artist Acrylic. This is the best bang for your buck in Denmark for acrylic paints. All the paints I use are non-toxic and safe for kids and pets. Each type has the ACMI (Art and Creative Materials Institute) Approved Product Seal.
“The AP (Approved Product) Seal identifies art materials that are safe and that are certified in a toxicological evaluation by a medicalexpert to contain no materials in sufficient quantities to be toxic or injurious to humans, including children, or to cause acute or chronic health problems. Such products are certified by ACMI to be labeled in accordance with the chronic hazard labeling standard, ASTM D 4236, and the U. S. Labeling of Hazardous Art Materials Act (LHAMA).”
Additional Paints I use are:
– Acrylic for Studio brand (Also from Denmark)
– FolkArt brand’s Metallic Paints series.
I use the FolkArt Outdoor Matte Sealer for all of my peg dolls. It is also AP Non-Toxic Certified (Please see the picture).
I use two coats of this brand of sealant on all peg dolls. It should stand up to water, new teeth, and the occasional accidental “I left it outside!”
