I'm finally getting back into dolls~ its been so on and off, life and such.. No worries, my girls are patient lol!
My plan for Tai has always been a gal fashion look. Since I'm getting Danny's Ebony Smart doll, I had the idea to use my old 02 head as a manba face up. After leveling up and painting my own face, a lil beenie doll head should be piece of cake right!?
Hopefully someone figures out a way to attach the dd heads to smartdoll bodies lol! Ebony will be the daily gal face and dd extreme gal face😁👍
Started off my completely rubbing the old faceup with Windsor and Newton. The paint came off nicely and no dye was removed 👌
First used white paint to get the base area done. After getting the whites in a desirable shape, I put on the nose stripe. I was considering doing the side contour but I wasn't sure how it would read on a dollfie.
Next was to put the eye shadow colours. I should have extended the reach but I clearly wasn't thinking! Its all good, but sadly the eye shadow isn't visible with the lashes.
After eye shadow comes eyeline, which I gave a generous amount. Manba is all about exaggerating, got it!? Lol..
Now the lips and eyebrows~ I wasn't sure how the white would read for the lips, so I went with bubble gum pink. I also put some small angled lines at the end of her lips, trying to make her look slightly less angry.. However, I do like her lil unpleased face. The eyebrows were kinda slapped on but I'm ok with it💜
Finishing off with the eyelashes. Tops are double layers, gets more bang! Slapped on the bottoms and we got ourself a complete look!
There you go, lil manba gal~ Enjoy your ciggy!
This experiment has taught me that I need to get more paint supplies! Thinner would have helped as the paint was getting bulky.. 😅 Also if I could find a way to do blended edges for the outer white areas. I need to investigate for the future! Otherwise..
Soo cute 😊💜 Can't wait to get Ebony! Planning out her faceup and outfit 😈
Until next time!
