I have a growing number of dolls waiting to be repainted or tweaked.
It’s been a long time since I put a brush to use on the dolls or action figure peeps (I hesitate to say this, but I think it’s been a year or more? Ugh.)
It seems like it should be a simple enough thing for me to get back into the groove of it, no?
The thing is, that for me it usually isn’t. The longer my break the more I struggle when I come back to it because I don’t have a set formula for how I do a repaint. By that I mean that I don’t know how other people go about customizing and repainting their dolls. I only know what I do…for the most part. I try very hard not to think about it too much or focus on it because I usually choke up at those times. For me, repainting a head/face is the closest I come to meditation.
Usually I forget the techniques that I used previously and have to go through a trial and error process after a hiatus. So that’s what I am looking at for July. re-learning how I did it and hopefully improving over the previous efforts.
Who’s on my Re-Paint/Re-Tweak List?
- Tricks of the Trade Eugenia
- Dynamite Girls Homme Kyu
- Norma Desmond (giselle sculpt)
- Tina Tanaka (poppy-verse)
- Tina Tanaka (yes, I bought 2 of them)
- High Visibility Agnes (maybe eyes & make up or maybe just lips)
- Monogram Echelon
- Lotta Danger Poppy (poppy-verse)
- Irresistable In India Poppy (poppy-verse)
So it looks like July will be the main month of trial and error and that I will have to get back in the swing of things.
