Mottling layers?

So I watched @Kim_CustomDollBaby tutorial (hi if your reading this!) So I was doing mottling, and she does 4 different layers but says she more that that baby didn’t need, does anyone know how to make the other colors that she didn’t use?

Yeah, that has generated a lot of questions. I can’t wait till I get the chance to create my Advanced Mottling Technique class. LOL You’ll get some great tips from the very talented artists on here. But here are my two cents:

  1. A beginner bare minimum mottling should be two layers: Vein Blue and Warm Blush. This also looks good on toddlers.
  2. Really advanced mottlers will use multiple shades of red, multiple shades of blue, green, and purple (Dioxazine Purple 02, BTW)
  3. I like to use Kate’s recipies for a lot of my mottling, regardless of complexion (don’t tell her that! LOL) Custom Doll Baby - Order Low Cost Custom Dolls, Portrait Dolls, Reborn Dolls This will also give you the recipes for the colors I left out of the video.
  4. You can also mottle your blushing for a very pretty look.

    Hope that helps!
