Process of Painting your Own Russian Dolls

  • Before getting started, you need to know what each doll represents. Outline the dolls in increasing order. First, outline the smaller dolls, then move toward the bigger ones. You can paint your Russian doll in a fancy attire or even take your family as a theme for your set. Or even you can draw cartoon themes or pet animals on your nesting dolls
  • If you are a beginner or a kid, you can use just two colors to paint your own Russian doll, which will help you develop your painting skills
  • Make thin outlines for the details of your matryoshka dolls with a pencil. A circle on the top part will be sufficient for the head. If you want to make your nesting dolls look more traditional, you may add a headscarf to the females. For children, draw another circle on the doll’s belly and let them draw whatever they like inside. This makes things easy for them and prevents them from becoming overwhelmed by too much detail. Otherwise, feel free to design and “dress up” your dolls in whichever outfits you choose
  • The next step is to paint away the doll. Start following the outline and gently paint the edges of the doll and then move towards the rest of the parts. You can even draw hairs on the heads of the dolls
  • After the paint has dry, apply a couple of coats of lacquer or varnish to your nested dolls for a glossy finish. Now your dolls are ready to play with or decorate our homes or offices

Sizes of Russian Nesting Dolls You Can Paint

The following are the sizes of Russian Nesting Dolls you can paint:

  • Small Matryoshka Dolls – These are 1.5 inches tall, so they’re ideal for painting on your desk or nightstand. They have a small opening at the top of each doll and a small hole in its back. The smaller ones are good for displaying on top of each other, while larger ones would make great centerpieces or place settings
  • Medium Matryoshka Dolls – These are 2 inches tall, which means that they fit nicely into most cups and vases without needing to be glued in place (although some may require some glue). They also look great when stacked up together in groups
  • Large Matryoshka Dolls – These are 3 inches tall–you could even use them as housewarming gifts. Once again, these are super fun stuff

Painting Russian Dolls as a Decorative Items for Christmas

You may be familiar with the Russian nesting dolls, or matryoshka. These wooden figures are hand-painted and come in various sizes, from 5 cm to about 50 cm.

The tradition of decorating Christmas trees with these three-inch wooden dolls was born in the 19th century, when peasants used to make these dolls to sell at local markets. Today’s collectors collect them because they are decorative pieces that can be used as gifts or displayed on shelves or tables as decorations.

Different Ideas for Painting Your Own Russian Nesting Dolls

If you’re looking for some ways to change up the look of your Russian nesting dolls, here are some ideas:

  • Use different colors, patterns, and designs. You can also paint over the doll’s surface with acrylics or other paints. This will give your handmade creation a more dimensional feel that’s especially nice if you’re working with small dolls or larger ones that tend to fall flat when painted in one color alone
  • Use different materials such as paper (like wrapping paper), fabric, wood, and more. If there’s something about the way these dolls look that appeals to you but isn’t available in nature (like those tiny little flowers painted onto them), then consider painting them yourself; after all you are only creating something beautiful

You can paint your own Russian dolls by creating a unique one for yourself according to your own taste and preferences.
