I only have a small update since the last time as I was really sick all of last week. I'm finally better though (not even a sniffly nose anymore!) so this week I'm resuming working on commissions!
What I was able to do was finish sanding the Ringdoll Fat Happiness to clean up an old dye attempt and prep him for a new dye job.
Here's his before and after clean up. I spent a good few days sanding him all over. It's not perfect the clean up, but he's going to get dyed dark tan again so I'm hoping that'll cover the spots I wasn't able to get clean!
I'm going to be using iDye Poly brown, which the client provided for me. I have everything else needed (like a stainless steel pot), so now I just need to give him a good rinse and dye him. Once he's dyed he's going to also get a face up.
I also got an Impldoll Isaac to paint for a friend, which I'm also hoping to knock out this week! I work awkward hours so I'm hoping to get some work done at least! I don't work Thursday (Thanksgiving), but that day is already busy with holiday prep. Either way, I'm looking forward to working on dolls again!
Oh man this week was hectic, emotional, and overall exhausting. Either way, I made it to the weekend and once the sun is up and it is a little warmer I will work on the Ringdoll Fat Happiness.
He came to me with a previous uneven dye job so I need to clean him up before I can re-dye him and give him a face up. I gave him a rub down with rubbing alcohol, but he will need quite a bit of sanding to get clean. Once he is done I'll be at 280 completed face ups to date!
Anyway I should be able to get him done this weekend (finally), so I'm re-opening slots again now! I already updated the front page of my site, but I wanted to give a shoutout here too. So if you're looking for a face up/body blush/fantasy blush, send me a message through my contact page!
I actually finished this face up on Sunday, but I'm only getting now to posting it. This time I got to work on a Withdoll Elf Hunter Emma in grey-UV skin. That resin has a slight translucency about it, it's very pretty!
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
I was asked to do purple smoky eyes, black lips with gold flecks, and white eyebrows and lashes. White eyebrows are always such a challenge for me, even though I like the end result! Fantasy colored resin always provides me with a learning experience since I have to use different color palettes to make them look natural. Always a fun thing for me though!
Now for the FYI.
I intend to reopen commissions at the end of this week. I'm almost done with all that I have to do currently (just got the Ringdoll Fat Happiness left, who needs a dye job and a face up), so I'm just about ready to take on more! Keep your eyes peeled for the announcement!
Until next time!
I managed to finish up the two face ups from the last post, and the body/fantasy blush for the Doll Chateau Jakov. The Fairyland PukiFee Halloween event faceplate only needed gloss as he was pretty much done. The Jakov needed his lips tweaked, gloss, and his body and fantasy parts blushed.
Without further ado, onto some pictures!
First up is the Fairyland PukiFee Halloween event faceplate from a year or so ago. He's got a certain charm about him! The client asked for natural blush and freckles.
Then we have the Doll Chateau Jakov in white skin, who is a little imp/demon boy. I've worked on one before, but he had a very different theme from this one! I always love how different owners style the same sculpts. I'm rather proud of the wings and tail as I did that all with pastels. One day I may learn to use an airbrush, but for now, pastels and brush work well for me!
I will end this post with a full body picture of the Jakov all put together. I can't wait to see what the owner will do with him and the Halloween faceplate!
I have some new work to show from the weekend, but it's still very much WIP. I started on a Fairyland PKF Halloween Event face plate from a year or so ago, and on another Doll Chateau Jakov. The PKF is almost done, the Jakov's face I have to tweak a little and start on the body/fantasy blushing.
The PKF just needs gloss now, while the Jakov needs his lips redone, which shouldn't be too big of a task. I love how different both of these look from the previous times I've worked on these sculpts.
My work schedule has been crazy again this week as one of our closing receptionists quit on the spot, so we're trying to figure out the coverage for those two days as there's only two of us who can work then, and we're both openers. We'll figure it out until someone new gets hired and trained in.
Anyway, until next time!
