Welcome to our Personalised Peg Dolls Gallery. Brew yourself a warm pot of tea and stay a while. A slice of cake is optional, but highly recommended.
Our peg dolls are a bit different to other lovely, painted Peg Dolls you may have seen.
The details you see are added to my little people using the art of pyrography. This is the art of burning decorative marks into wood with a hot iron tool. I have been using this technique since 2015 and it sets my work apart from other peg doll artists.
You can see lots of examples me working with pyrography in action on my YouTube Channel!
Attention to detail is paramount to me, so I colour them with the best, highly pigmented and light-fast pencils. These combine with the beautiful natural grain of the wood, producing a soft, tactile appearance that you just want to touch. I love the appearance and feel of wood grain, so prefer enhancing this with pencil over covering it with paint. However, sometimes a doll calls for combining the coloured pencils with acrylic or water colour paint. I always chose the best medium to meet the brief, recreating the peg dolls outfits as faithfully as possible.
Finally, I finish each doll by adding several layers of a non-toxic sealant. This ensures the wooden version of you stands the test of time!
OUR PERSONALISED PEG DOLLS ARE INTENDED AS BEAUTIFUL KEEPSAKES. THEY ARE FOR DECORATIVE PURPOSES ONLY. They are to be treated as collectors items, for ages fourteen and over only.
ALTHOUGH NON TOXIC MATERIALS ARE USED on our products, THEY SHOULD NEVER BE PLACED IN LITTLE MOUTHS – AS TEMPTING AS THAT IS! PLEASE DON’T EAT THEM – OR GIVE THEM TO SMALL CHILDREN TO PLAY WITH!
Our finished dolls are packaged prettily, before making their way to you wherever you are in the UK.
We also love sharing the stories behind each beautiful little set of peg dolls that we make.
Keep up to date with their cheery little tales by following along and reading our blog here.
♥ Please note that due to the popularity of my peg dolls, slots for personalised commissions fill up way in advance. In 2019 my books for the rest of the year were full by August. Please get in touch in plenty of time to secure your spot on our order books and avoid any disappointment ♥
We’d love to immortalise your family by creating wooden replicas of you all! Get in touch using the contact form or by email.
Whilst we endeavour to update this gallery regularly, we are very busy bees here at Doli Dwt beavering away creating our peg dolls. Therefore some of these images may be from quite some time ago! Don’t forget that the best place for keeping up to date with our most recent creations is through our social media channels linked above. Or by popping straight to our blog here!
