I’m finally posting a doll repaint! Yay!
For the first layer, I was in a different location. I return back to my normal, messy desk in the next picture!
I started by drawing in the eyes as well as the lips and freckles. I added them all over the face, rather than just across the cheeks. Since I was moving around, I used my regular, oil based Faber Castell colored pencil, and ooooooh boy. People said not to use oil based pencils because they stain, and I didn’t believe them until I tried to work on the left eye. You can kinda see the line that I erased. This faceup was a little rough in certain areas.
Once I got home, I darkened the lines and made the freckles more noticeable. This took a couple layers.
Once the face was sealed, I started gluing the hair on. I glued long wefts on and cut them to my desired length. I used the eyebrow razors to soften the hard edges and make them look more natural. I then used a (unused) toothbrush and some water to get the hairstyle to sit down.
And here’s the finished product! I added a highlight on the eye, and finished up the doll!
I’m really happy with the way this doll came out! I wasn’t sure how well the hairstyle would look once I finished, but I’m really happy with the result! I’ve made an asymmetrical bob before, and it didn’t look nearly this good. I suppose that’s because it was my first time making such a wig, but I’m glad I’ve grown!
