Thanks sweetie I was happy with my turquoise eyes, but the pro certainly lough out loud but it is not matter ..because my doll is happy
it took me like forever to do those eyes and it was only partial. I am totally in admiration for those so talented who do total repaint job
I used a 000 brush and a embroidery magnifier and the brush was still too big.
For the wig I use carnival wig from $ store for 4.00 euro I can make or practice at least 3/4 doll wigs
for the cap I cover the head with kitchen plastic and make the cap with cheese clothe deep in wood white glue.. when dry I glue my hair with hot glue
but it is so much fun!!
Wow, thanks FDS. Well, it's the first time I re-paint and it was my first wig. I'm already working on the photo session so you can see the whole result. I didn't want to remove the whole paint since it was my first time so I just removed certain things like the painted lashes and eyebrows. I think it's easier before you feel more confident to start with a blank face. I removed the old hair because it was a real mess so my girl in fact is bald now. For the wig I used hair from one of my old synthetic wigs.
I worked on a silicone cap I made myself using a tutorial I saw on YouTube. i'll share it later. I'll post a Before-After photo so you can see what she looked like before the make-over.
Thanks again for your nice comments.
Isn't it great Lilly?! Now you have a new doll. She looks like an exotic Asian beauty. Loved the diamond touch on her nose.
It's funny... your doll had brown eyes and now she's got bright blues eyes. It was the other way around with my doll. She had blue eyes and ended up with big dark eyes.
I'l post a Before-After photo so you can see the difference.
Isabel, this is impressive. Was it difficult to make the wig? Did you remove the paint from the eyes before you repainted them or did you paint over the existing eye color? What did you use for the hair?
Wow Lilly, you're all so good at this!
see how each of you lovely people are encouraging?? seeing your good job Isabel I thought I can give it a try . my Girl is originally a Latina (Sofia Cruz,Mme Alexander)
The original I didn't like the bang and the hair are more brown than black
I have chosen her 1 st for the deal price (none other was a 30$ ) but also for her complexion. my Gang needed an Indian girl so the hair were not right, neither the eyes
this was the first step. cut the hair to make a wig
and this is Cachemira today. the wig is ok but I will make another tomorrow I found this one a bit too"full" the hair a very long and I love them. I painted the eyes turquoise with acrylic paint. then I drop a tiny drop of clear nail polish
I now it is fare from perfect but I really love her this way ...she watched herself in the mirror and smiled
Thanks Nilsa!! I know what you mean, mainly when painting eyes which are looking to the front and not to left or right, it's incredible what a little white spot in an incorrect position can make your doll look cross-eyed or... maniac hahaha!! It was fun, though.
Isabel, you are awesome!! I cannot do repaints because I never get both halves to look alike! LOL
