Robin eyebrows - At last!


#1

Hi there,
I have finally done the eyebrows on my first doll. Very frustrating but I am finally happy with them.
What do you think?

I need to go over them with the thick medium to add a little texture.
Thanks to all you lovely ladies who gave me good advise.

Rooting next…yikes!!!

Thank you! Well I will try and explain what I did as I was trying different things as I was having trouble getting the paint to the right consistancy.
I mixed a little color (I think it was raw sienna and a little burnt umber) with a tiny bit of thick medium and then added a little thinners to it to make it a paintable consistancy and then I put the tiniest amount of paint on the brush and painted on the eyebrows a few strokes at a time. When it looked like they were beginning to take shape, I baked because I thought if I added more strokes and made a mistake (which I had previously been doing) then I would have to wipe it all off. I then went over them again doing a few more thin strokes of paint and then baked again.
I noticed that the paint mixture thickened up nicely after leaving it for a while so that may be an idea to just leave it to thicken a little before starting to paint. I also found it quite good to lightly touch the brush on the paint straight out of the jar and then just dab it into the mixed paint (just the tip of the brush).
This is still trial and error for me as this is my first time.
I hope this helps.

P.S thanks everyone for your nice comments, I appreciate them.
