I am enjoying moderate success with my Etsy shop (what very little I have listed in it) and a little shop in South Minneapolis called Mother Earth Gardens. They asked me to bring some dolls for them to sell and - guess what - they sold out and asked for more! So I made a new batch this weekend and thought I would take a photo of the tools I use to paint the faces. Are you ready for this highly technical confession? I use:
- Tulip fabric paint in black, rose and red
- two wooden skewers (eyes and mouth)
- back of a kid paint brush (cheeks)
Obviously, I am reallllly professional. Ha.
Here they are, ready to go:
And sometimes, there is a mishap.
Poor One-Eyed Suzy. She will be well cared for by my kids.
