Wonderful doll by Russian doll master Natalia Lopusova-Tomskaya

Russian doll master Natalia Lopusova-Tomskaya is a mystery. How to buy her doll, is for certain unknown. They say you need to wait for months… And this despite the fact that she regularly conducts master classes, and her book is partially available on the Internet. She is a sorceress with papier mache with impeccable taste. Her dolls are elegant and recognizable. And in one single image she can create a Tale.
Natalia Lopusova-Tomskaya combines various materials, laces and beads. It gives the impression of a rich, exquisite costume that emphasizes the subtlety of the proportions of the body itself. The gamma of fabrics is usually almost monochrome or based on a combination of similar colors, creating a feeling of overflows, playing shades.
The characters of Lopusova-Tomskaya are fantasy creatures from other worlds, all sorts of elves, circus people, and sometimes – associative images. In their “communication” with the viewer these dolls are very delicate and benevolent, do not rush to “tell” about themselves, but are ready to “listen” to the interlocutor …. Just be extremely careful – you can not but get under the influence of her dolls!
