Miniature dolls that stand without doll stand

A few days ago I stumbled on this innovative idea. Artist Laurie Sisson has developed "The Foot",  which allows doll house dolls to stand without doll stands. The answer is feet and lower legs made of weighted metal. Laurie offers these on her website in different sizes and styles.

Laurie says "The Foot" was invented by innovation and inspiration. "As I sculpted a pair of feet, the idea of placing weights in the feet of clay developed.... Then I learned how to become a metal patterns maker.... Dolls are now standing on their own two feet. Because wire is attached at the knee, they also sit nicely." 

"The Foot" is designed for miniature scale dolls and is available in one inch, half-inch scale and smaller. Read more and place orders with Laurie at  Don't miss the tutorial section with instructions for painting the Saddle Shoes and MaryJanes shown here.

Thank you very much for taking the time to comment! ;-)
Sorry I had to re-instate the 'word verification'...I'm getting far too much spam in the comment box.
