Fantasy Figurative Art dolls by MARCA is a small home based business owned and operated by Character Designer Margarita Castillo-Bernard. 


MARCA specializes in characters with an unconventional twist.


Her character design started after watching a movie called “Labyrinth”.


The manipulation of Polymer clays and resins learned from her experience with motion picture special effects artistry and professional toy prototype development has helped set her work apart from many.


Her style reflects her own personality and her admiration of artists such as: Froud, Burton, Grimly, Gorey, Rackham, etc.

MARCA’s characters feature materials most often natural and/or recycled such as cotton, hemp, linen, silk, bamboo, wool, etc. She dyes and felts many of the garments they wear.


The majority of them are made of a combination of resin and epoxy clay. A few are made of polymer clay, paper-clay or needle sculpted cloth. 

Most of these materials are NOT fragile and their bodies are able to change positions.


Her characters are produced in very small numbers. She creates each one of them by hand, from start to finish. Thus producing a small batch per year.


All designs are original and entirely crafted by hand; the process of creating them can take between 3 days and 6 weeks, depending on the complexity of the piece.


•After it is completed a story card is made with a brief description of the character’s identity, the materials it is made of and it is also signed and dated.

•The back of the head of the character or a body part is also signed.
