Reproducing Fair Organ Animated Figures
By Ellen Thomsen

Recently Mr. Lawrence McGowan asked about reproducing figures for
his project.  I would suggest looking to the doll hobby world for
assistance.  There are lots of molds out there to reproduce antique
figures.  They can be poured in porcelain, wax, plaster, air-drying
paper clays, or even used for fiberglass.

Reproduction wooden Santos figures come in all sizes and often have
beautiful antique-look faces and hands.

Yours sounds like a great project and not at all crazy.  (Well,
maybe a little!)
