BB Reese WIP


#41

Beautiful! This is so helpful. What color did you use for the warming wash?


#42

It’s a mix of dairylide yellow, raw sienna, genesis yellow and burnt umber. You can probably get this color without using all of those, but I just dab a little here and a little there until I get something that I think looks right. I’m making a large batch and not great at remembering the recipe.


#43

You can get that mustard color by mixing red+yellow+blue (very small blue amount).


#44

Q.crimson wash. I usually apply until our skin tones match, then bake. I will decide after that if I want him to have a redder base. This is the first point where he looks alive to me.


#45

When you say creasing are you creasing in the color you’re working on with mottling for each step?


#46

Where do you put the highlights for sap green? Thanks I’m learning, and I’m sorry for all the questions!


#47

Yes. I am building creases as I go in each color. I hi highlight a few areas on the face: nose, bridge of nose and between the brows. You have to be very careful with highlights and do them in super thin layers. I don’t recommend highlighting until you have practiced it. It took me several tries to get it right and I still have to occasionally remove it with OPT and try again before baking.


#48

Thank you for Sharing all of your steps and pictures with us. I love the way your baby is coming out.


#49

Spot blushing and creasing.

Almost done!


#50

Final blush, brows, and nails. Let me know if you see anything amiss before I seal him :slight_smile:


#51

Love how quickly he came to live for you!


#52

He looks amazing!! Especially love his hands/nails! Great job!!


#53

Thank you :blush: I am rather pleased with him. Now only of Darren would cooperate :roll_eyes:


#54

Reese in blanket. What color hair? I wanted to do a ginger, but I don’t think he has the complexion for that. Two are indoor lighting, rest are daylight bulb


#55

Thank you for sharing this with us!! Gorgeous baby!!
I am a firm believer that even after many years of doing this, there is still room to learn from other people. I love your use of colors, how you aren’t afraid to use them. (Sap green is one I have used, also.)
Look forward to seeing your finished Darren if you will share him once you are done.


#56

Darren is around here somewhere in a different post. He looks weird to me because I had to fix my 4yo daughter’s artistic reimagining if him :roll_eyes:


#57

He is perfect!


#58

Everything you have done on this baby looks great. I love how you blushed him too. For some reason I always go overboard on my blushing and it ends up being too much. Your baby is perfect!


#59

I usually apply a concentrated color to a very small area and spread like crazy. Then I go back with a sponge that has opt and lift away blush where I want it lighter.


#60

WOW!!! :revolving_hearts: Ginger hair would be perfect. One thing I forgot to ask you, did you do flesh layers after each mottling or did you wait to apply flesh at the end?
