Has anyone added extra creepiness to porcelain dolls? I'm looking to crack & paint them up, any recommendations or photos of yours done-up?? I plan on hanging a few from nooses as well ;-)

There's a big thread in the craft forum on doll makeovers might be useful to look at:

I've been working on making over a bunch of dolls this year, and I found the following two tutorials to be the most useful:

http://www.hauntforum.com/showthread.php?p=751990

Not mentioned in either tutorial, but also useful is crackle medium, which can be used to create a fine web of cracks on any painted surface:

Like chinclub, I've mostly used plastic dolls sourced from goodwill or yard sales, so I don't have pointers that are specific to working with porcelain. But hopefully the above links provide a good starting place.
