OMG! Was she dark skinned to begin? I need to make one like this!
Yes she was, I didn t add to much paint just the hair. Lol
Those left on the torso and lightly painted are what we used to call enhanced factory dolls. I think changing out the body for a cloth body makes a huge difference in converting them from a play doll to something that feels more life like as a reborn doll. They are very cuddly when put on a cloth body and even just lightly weighted in the torso and head with poly fill in the limbs. I do it that way for kids. I also have a Prillycharmin pattern for a cloth body I used to sew for them when I made these.
Yes, I used 16mm, they fit perfect.
