Things have improved since my last update on my Sally the Rag Doll.
I scrubbed and cleaned off the majority of the Valspar paint and have successfully repainted her with Krylon Indoor/Outdoor.
My poor Sally is looking like the Black Dahlia in this photo.
I tried painting her lips last night and decided to give the face plate and body a fine sanding before attempting again. I really don't like the glossy paint, but had no other option!
A friend of mine, who is a paper maker, is looking into some nice thick handmade artist paper. All of my paper from my art student days have too much tooth. I am needing nice smooth, stark white paper for the custom eyes.
I am really happy to see this project starting to come together. Once my nylon hair came in I started preparing for the knot method of rooting all I was waiting on was the scalp. Last night I determined it was dry enough so I started on the hair part with the strands. Now I am sewing wefting on the bulk of the head. I nearly have been late to work twice because of the hair!
Coming soon are photos of my completed Nicki Manaj custom. Or, re-custom! One of my black Blythes now has a Nicki Manaj face up with a perfect pink wig!
