I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy to finish a project. She’s not the best- I didn’t do any veining or mottling: I was more focused on a nice skintone with a little blushing. But I’m pleased with my “first waffle”. I made her a little too chunky, I think, though: she weighs 9 pounds, 2 ounces! Or is that normal for one of the small toddlers? At first she was huge- I was experimenting with making the body and she was barely fitting into 2T clothes and weighed 13 pounds! So I streamlined it by 2 inches, took out half of the BB’s, and now she feels much more manageable. She can fit into 6-12 month clothes now. Hopefully I’ll be able to put up some pictures soon.
Thanks everybody for all of your help with my questions! I really appreciate it.
