Hello all! I am very new to reborning. I have a lot to learn, but I am enjoying this new hobby so much-- the challenge of it all; learning through trial and error.
I am using acrylics. I thought I was very familiar with how acrylics behave, as I paint on canvas all the time. It is a totally different experience painting these dolls though!
I have been learning so much reading through all the posts on here! Thank you for sharing all your great tips and feedback on each other’s work! I have learned so much from this forum-- probably learned as much on here as from the YouTube tutorials.
This photo was taken with my cell phone- so not very clear. The doll is not yet put together- just “propped it” to give me a better idea how it is coming along.
I appreciate all feedback and am very open to any critiquing. If you have any tips for how to improve on this one, or any general tips, I appreciate them so much! I realize I have much to learn still, so suggestions are a help.
I still have eyelashes and eyebrows, securing the eyes, and fingernails and other touch-ups to do. I think I will leave him bald-- but we will see.
I cannot wait to stuff him, weight him, bring him more fully “to life”.
