Its a pretty sculpt, it should have been easy, but everything that could go wrong did. The upside is I got a lot of hair painting practice and learned a lot of things “Not” to do.
- Wait for the darn eye glue to dry before filling the head.
- Thin, thin, thin, paint.
- Don’t trust varnish
- Shiny is not your friend.
- When mottling (the face) less is more
- Know when to say "OK, I am done
So here is my Lulu. I don’t think she is a boo-boo baby but I know how many errors I made. I will do this sculpt again someday but I am so glad I am done.
Crusty, chalky, nightmare.
Me learning to paint hair
Her eyes are a little crooked, she has “dry” skin (cheeks) I over mottled cheeks and the varnish didn’t cure (baked 7 times until we got back to shiny). I kinda like her little dolly face.
We all go through this from time to time, it gets better.
She’s a cutie! Which eyes are these? They look beautiful with her complexion.
Thank you. BB’s baby blue/grey eyes, the plastic ones.
Lulu is a tough one! It gets better!
I like your hair layering. The eyes look great.
I like how you did her hair with the thicker strands over the rest, and I agree…beautiful eyes. For all the trouble she gave you, she turned out pretty cute.
