I haven’t been writing much lately, sorry about that, I’ve been using the time to learn some new skills with a paint brush. I grew up with a mom who paints very well and until very recently I’ve never painted very much or been very satisfied with my attempts. If you’ve been here on This Recycled Life a few times you’ve seen a few of my dolls. Generally I’m happy with my big-eye girls but never very satisfied with the noses, I hate noses.
I’ve been known to clean or sand off the noses many, many times when I am trying to get a doll’s face right. Even then, sometimes I put them in a box and a month or more later I take them out and try the nose again. Well – I’ve made a little progress lately and I’ve been learning to shade, so on with the Show-and-Tell – here is my newest face. I’ve still got to finish her off and give her some reclaimed or recycled little outfit but I don’t plan to mess with the nose.
