Glass Domes for Displaying Collectible Dolls

Displaying a collectible doll in a glass display dome can be a beautiful and elegant way to showcase your treasured possession. Here are some steps you can follow to use a glass display dome to display a collectible doll:

Glass Display Dome with Wood Base

Decide on the size: When deciding on the size of display dome you need for your doll, carefully take the measurements of your collectible doll. Then you will want to add at least 1.5 inches to the height, and at least 3 inches to the width and depth. This will give you the minimum dimensions needed for  your dome. For instance, if you have a collectible Barbie Doll that measures 11.5 inches tall and 3 inches wide and deep, you will need a glass dome that measures at least 5 inches in diameter and 13 inches tall.

Clean the dome: Before placing your doll inside the glass dome, clean the interior of the dome with a soft cloth or microfiber towel. This will remove any dust or debris that may have accumulated on the glass.

Choose a base: You will need a base to display your doll on. Choose a base that is sturdy enough to support the weight of your doll and complements the design of your glass dome. A wooden base is a good option and all of FHD's glass display domes come with a variety of wood finish bases.

Position the doll: Carefully position the doll on the base in the desired pose. Use small pieces of museum putty or other adhesive to secure the doll in place.
Place the dome: Once the doll is positioned correctly, place the glass dome over the base. Make sure the dome is centered on the base and sits securely.

Adjust the lighting: If desired, you can add lighting to your display to highlight the doll. LED lights or string lights can be placed around the base or inside the dome to create a soft glow.

Display the dome: Find a prominent location to display your glass dome. A shelf or mantel is a good option, but make sure it is away from direct sunlight, which can damage the doll or cause fading.

By following these steps, you can create a stunning display with a glass display dome for your collectible doll that will be a conversation piece for years to come.
