Hello everyone!!! I hope you are all having a great Halloween!!! I have 2 questions to ask about the baby I am working on. I am working on a Jacob sculpt for a dear friend of mine who’s son, Tyler, was born at 25 weeks. She wants the baby to look like Tyler when he about 3 weeks old (look at http://forum.bountifulbaby.com/viewtopi … ro+preemie for pictures).
1.) Since Tylers skin was paper thin I need to put a sheen on the doll. I read somewhere that I should use matte varnish and then bake and then put a glazing gel over the matte varnish and then bake and then buff with a cloth if it still needs it. Can I use Paper Glaze for the glazing gel? Can I heat the Paper Glaze?
2.) (this is an question to ask but…) My friend wants the baby to be anatomically correct, how do you paint the ‘real boy’ part??? I have never really seen one before (of any age). I don’t know what they really look like or what colors to use. Since Tyler was a micro preemie I am sure the colors will look different from normal but I can just use the colors I use for the flesh. Do you know of any sites that have pictures of ‘real boy’ part???
Thank you all in advance!!!
