Big night out?

So, I applied her face and I am less than happy. I thought I would be clever and utilise my 2008 learned skill, colourque. I used my new derwent "inktense" pencils. Who knew their colour would be intense. (Okay, I'm playing dumb here, obviously!) She looks like she had a big night out on the town and went to bed without removing her make-up.

These photos were taken after she had had a swim in my front loader, and I had "fixed" her up a bit with a white inktense pencil. Hmm... it's all experience, isn't it? Next time I would paint her face on with some fabric paint. Still may do that to "rescue" her.

alternatively you could use fabric markers. i got some from an art supply shop and they work very well and are easy to apply.
i still think she looks adorable though - well done ;)

Kris....you have just given me such a good laugh......I love the dialogue here. I think she looks cute....I think you've done a pretty good job. If you've never painted a dolls face before you've done a pretty good job.

She has a lovely face! Idea for the next doll... paint her face before sewing and stuffing... You can make as many faces as you like!

It is all a learning curve she still looks cute and like US all she will fade.

I think she looks great - but don't you just hate when things are going great and then all of a sudden it's ... oopsie shouldn't have done that! :O) It would seem your rescue mission was a success though!

You had me chuckling, Kris. I think your doll looks sweet.

Just an idea but could you embroider over her face with some softer embroidery colours? If you are really not happy with her face then that is what I would try.
