Use old socks on doll legs to prevent the porcelain from hitting together and breaking one or both legs. You can also use an armature in the doll this way the limbs can be moved and will not hit one another. If an armature is to be used you must plan for this when the greenware is being cleaned so to open hands, arms, legs to take the armature and also the body if
cloth will have to be modified. Almost any doll can be
changed so that armature can be used.
