Please note, as these peg dolls are individually hand painted and there is a lot of fine detailing.
We need our dolls to dry in natural conditions and not with heat guns or heated environments. When heated with a heat gun, most times the outside would dry first and not the inner layers.
This will end up with our dolls leaving you with finger prints over the dolls and a moist and sticy feel if not dried properly.
Feel free to email us and we can give you a better estimate depending on your order quantity.
