I have the Amaya that I don’t feel my skill level is up to just yet. I started to try to paint her, wasn’t happy with how it was going, so stripped off the paint. She’s going to be my keeper and I want her to be perfect! (I actually have a ponytail from my own daughter’s previous haircut that will go on this doll… to make her that much more special!)
This is a picture of my daughter when she was around 2-3…
And now… she’s going to be 13 at the end of the month!!
With the sale and coupon code this week I feel maybe I ought to buy another asian sculpt that I won’t feel as much pressure to get “perfect” (Tho I am a perfectionist and try to do the best I can on each baby.) I’m just so new to the art…
Anyway, any suggestions for kits to look at? I’ve seen Fei Yen. and Kimi. (I personally like Kimi a bit better so far)… but I’d love to see other kits out there that y’all like.
Your daughter is very beautiful, and I think Amaya is perfect for her. Don’t worry. I have made hundreds of dolls and I still get one occasionally that I strip multiple times. In the end I am always happy that I did it.
Mae by Sandy Faber was my first Asian baby. Irresistables has her. Jiali by Adrie Stoete is also cute. Lea by Ping Lau is on pre-order at Irresistables. She looks a lot like the first picture. I’d get one of these if you want one to practice on but I think Amaya is perfect for her. Your daughter is beautiful.
