Create your own nesting doll with this do-it-yourself kit - draw, paint, or wood burn - it is all up to you! We offer top quality linden wood unpainted blanks hand carved in Polkhovski Maidan, the biggest centre of nesting doll production in Russia. In this set, dolls typically start about 4 " tall, but being carved by many hands, they do vary somewhat. Typically, the 5 dolls in the set will measure at least: 3.5", 2.5", 2",1.25".75". Please be advised: Blank items ordered from Golden Cockerel are made of real live linden wood. Real wood has imperfections, including but not limited to; discolorations, knots, holes and dry spots. While we strive to pick the best, blemish free linden wood for our blank products, imperfections will occur. In the case of knots, dents or holes we may use wood putty to fill these areas. This creates a smooth surface for the application of artwork by our artists.
