Tai new manba faceup


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 face๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

Started off my completely rubbing the old faceup with Windsor and Newton. The paint came off nicely and no dye was removed ๐Ÿ‘Œ

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 it๐Ÿ’œ 

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.. ๐Ÿ˜… 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 ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’œ Can't wait to get Ebony! Planning out her faceup and outfit ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

Until next time!
