I'm so proud of my daughter.This is her very first try at doing a custom faceup and it turned out so well!
She started out with a ResinSoul Yu she had named Pip, a tiny doll that had a rather awful default faceup when it arrived. The original faceup, pictured below, was pale, with dark shadows under the eyes that made Pip look sick or ghostly. She looked sad, lonely, and lost.
Kristy wiped the face (removed all colour using solvents), resealed the resin, and started in with the pastels, paints, a steady hand, and a lot of courage! I've heard that working at this tiny scale is very difficult.
Thanks to Kristy, the "new" Pip has a healthy, rosy glow, light freckles, and a much cleaner, fresher, overall appearance.
I think Pip looks wonderful and I can't wait to see the next faceup Kristy does. She'll have a little more room to work with as the next doll is a little bit bigger.
I think Kristy should resurrect her old blog, or start up a new one. She's got talent and she needs a place to showcase it.
