He is now working with my friend Susan from DollGenie.com and their second collaboration is this beautiful “ESPAÑA” OOAK doll that is now available for sale.

Barbie paintings by Livin’ Plastic Dolls

I met Servando Hernandez of Livin’ Plastic Dolls online when he message me about his OOAK dolls. His incredible skills and amazing creations made me fall in love with his work right away. Then, at his year’s Madrid Fashion Doll Show I got a chance to meet him in person and also see another part of his artistic talent.

He is from Mexico, has graduated the Fine Arts school as an industrial designer (just like me!), he’s 24 and has painted all his life. His first artistic love is now combined with his second one, “plastic arts”, and he’s trying to use his academic specializing in sculpt and fashion pattern design to create beautiful OOAK dolls.

When we sat at the same table at MFDS he gifted each of us (including Carlyle Nuera) an amazing Barbie paiting. Each painting was different and all of them are hand painted on a canvas with a mixed technique. I got the Stefano Canturi Barbie and I’m now waiting for it to be framed. It will look amazing in my room. :X

And speaking of his OOAK dolls, check out his Cara Delevingne A B I T O . B I A N C O OOAK doll. I saw her live at MFDS and she’s stunning!

She has a beautiful greyish skin tone, full dark grey hair, blue eyes, soft red makeup and lips and a pale pink ball gown wedding dress with puffy sleeves and lace.
