Nesting dolls 2

previous posting about nesting dolls here

Now I own two old nesting dolls. The first one was in too good shape for me to be able to sand it down and repaint it. The other is not.

But - as time has passed since the last time, and I haven't decided yet anything, here's a bit more inspiration on how to repaint nesting dolls (or maatuskas as we call them in Finland)

 Irina Troitskaya's arctic series... I love ALL her sets. 
I somehow like the simple white decor... like with these, by Abbey Hendrickson

There is something I like with these "nesting birdies" by Christo de los Rabitos
It's from his Deviant Art account that is inactivated. :-(

The following three are by "The Colorful World" at I love them :-)

Or these monsters, from Matryoshka Madness. Simple and nice :-D 
I don't think I'll make something like that anyway.

But - the original Russian nesting dolls have some charm... They are kind of personal and have nice colors.

Somehow reminds me of Inner Content's dolls...

What great inspiration! I've never seen such unusual (and beautiful) renditions of nesting dolls -- when you repaint yours please do show them!
