 Welcome to the Morezmore Studio. My name is Natasha. I am a puppet-maker and Morezmore Store keeper. This blog is about making puppets and OOAK (One of a Kind) art dolls. I love making them and share my notes – my successes as well as my failures – here, on this blog. Although some people refer to them as Morezmore tutorials, I myself see them as Work-in-Progress Notes, One of a Kind adventures with unpredictable results.

Almost all materials and tools that I use are available for purchase at Morezmore Store.
Morezmore is a family business, run by 3 women – mother Natasha (me), daughter Natasha and grandmother Nina. We sell stuff for making OOAK dolls, stop motion puppet and props fabrication, tools and materials. Check us out.

  1. Hi Natasha,

    WOW, you do unbelievably incredible work! (jaw on floor!)

    For some strange reason I suddenly got a compulsion to make a tiny fairy bjd just to see if I could. I am not a doll maker or sculptor or anything, I just decided I wanted one, and should try to make it myself. Now I am obsessed with doing one. After MUCH internet researching I came across your incredible blog showing your making of the second Smita doll. Morezmore #25 Ball-Jointed Doll (BJD): Figuring Out The Mechanics. Part 4 and 5. AMAZING! I know it was not done as a tutorial, but it is the best visually and easiest to understand that I found. Because it is not a tut. I was left with just a couple questions for verification, and am hoping you could take the time to answer them for me..
    1)a) Is the knee joint the same as the elbow one?
    b) Is it also the same size?
    c) It is not totally round but kind of square, does the socket opening need to be a bit rounder-bigger?
    2) the original top torso piece is first completely hollow and empty, and I thought I could see the bottom torso piece through the shoulder holes, but it might just be the glass… Later it has a smooth layer inside with a hole. I do understand that that is it’s socket, and so my question is, how did you add the inside socket layer without it just pushing up into the top of the upper torso or did you shorten the under torso?
    3) Any chance at all you have any pics of the making of the hips and feet?
    Thank you so much!
    I cannot believe you made such an incredible face and amazing hands and feet, this is where I shall fail miserably! But nothing ventured… 😉
    Best regards,
    Brandy

  3. Brandy, thank you, my friend, you are very nice to me 🙂
    I don’t remember everything – it was a while ago, but I will try to answer
    knee joint the same as the elbow one – yes, they are, but knee joints are bigger.
    The joints are like 2 balls connected together. Here is a photo:

    Check it out – putin was after Smita, so there is a bit more research.

    I am also planning to make another bjd blog, collecting my thoughts and supplies – bought last thing yesterday. Will be glad to share of course, come back.

    You are so very clever Natasha, I just love all your tutorials. The hair is brilliant thank you and really so simple though I got a bit lost over the central part but o think I’ve sussed now! Thank you my dear friend, it is such a joy learning from you and although I’m having huge problems with my right wrist still, o LOVE learning and hoping for the day when I can use my right hand properly again.
    Hugs and thanks

  10. Hi Natasha. I just love all your dolls, they are so full of life. I am wondering about Genesis heat set paints. I have a bisque porcelain doll head that is not painted yet. Could I use Genesis on eyebrows, lips, cheeks. I am afraid to put her in the oven and was wondering about the heat gun instead. I know everyone says to use acrylics, but wouldn’t they scratch off? She is a reproduction Jumeau, and might have a skin color glaze already on her. I would appreciate any of your ideas. She was inexpensive, but i fell in love with her and don’t want to ruin her. Thank you, Anna.

  11. Hi, Anna, I only used Genesis on polymer clay, never on porcelain, cannot give you any meaningful advice about painting porcelain dolls, sorry…
