London: An eccentric artist from Washington is making a living by creating incredibly spooky zombie dolls - that are proving a hit around the world.

From vampire-like teeth to pale skin and piercing red eyes, Bean Shanine, 32, is putting up to eight hours a day to make her zombie dolls.

Shanine insists that she receives almost entirely positive comments from people on the internet about her dolls.

The mother-of-four, who lives in Washington, USA, made her first zombie doll in 2010 as a gift for a friend, who takes part in an annual zombie walk in Vancouver, Canada.

But she soon turned her hobby into a business - The Twisted Bean Stalk Nursery - and sells the creepy creations for up to 930 pounds to collectors in the UK and all over the world, the Daily Mail reported.

She said that each doll needed about 30 layers of paint and then she had to bake the doll after every single layer.

She added that after the doll's are painted she has to assemble them, add any finishing touches and root hair, and if the hair is rooted that takes about eight hours or painting the hair takes about six.
