Here are the two RealPukis (Tyni and Pupu) before I worked on them. I tried to clean the Pupu up, but her eyebrows came off so I wiped her completely and redid her face up as close to the original as I could. I just left off the freckles.
The Tyni I need to wipe again since his body job is chipping and need to redo the face ups as cute as they are. Oh well. I'll first document them before I wipe and redo them.
They are so adorable. Little snappy in the arms but they stand really cute. I'm trying to use brush more than watercolor pencils, I like the cleanness of the lines more. Stay tuned for more!
Heads up everyone! I got two large-ish commissions coming in. They both got shipped out yesterday to me and I'm so looking forward to working on them all.
One is 2 RealPuki face ups, cleaning of another RealPuki head, and a body blush on one of them. They'll be the tiniest dolls I've ever worked on. I can't wait!
The other is a LumeDoll Rischa face up and body blush with facial and body hair. He's going to be fun.
I should really work on that MH doll I've been sitting on, I just have a hard time removing their old face ups. I don't know what they use, but they're a PAIN to remove. Yikes. Oh well, I'll get her done.

FREE Face Up Raffle!<-- Click to enter.
You just need to be a tumblr member and reblog or like the post to enter. A winner will be chosen at random on my birthday, April 1st.
I'm also going to raise my prices in April, but I think I'll freeze the prices then for a while.
Also my plates pretty empty right now, so if you have any lovelies that need a spa day, don't hesitate to contact me!
I did three face ups for the same person on Monday. I'm still waiting on hearing back on approval or not. I'd like to be able to send them back soon.
The heads are a Hujoo Yomi, Hujoo Sara, and an Obitsu 27cm Head.
The Obitsu head was truly puny to work on, and I was asked to do freckles. Good thing my technique of freckles is easy and can be applied to any sized doll depending on how much water I use.
Now the two Hujoos were interesting to work on because they both have subtractive markings in their blushing. Stupidly enough I put the music notes on the Hujoo Yomi on the wrong cheek so I asked the owner whether they want me to redo the face up or not. I like the rest of it, but I haven't heard back from them yet.
Also the Obitsu takes really teeny tiny eyes. I had a hard time getting them into the head...
It's almost that time where I raise my prices. With the time and effort that goes into each face up that I do, I still barely break even countered with the cost of supplies.
I finally had to restock my eyelashes because I was all out of black and brown in BOTH styles. I also picked up some purple.
Oh, and next month is my birthday on the first so I want to hold a raffle for one free face up. Sign up will start two weeks before my birthday and I will draw a person at random on my birthday. If you are chosen, please have your head ready to be sent off.
Thank you for everyone who has commissioned me so far, you are what keeps me going.
