|terrible lighting....annoying camera|
(or lack there of)
So, above is the recent shot of the face plate
for Daria's customization
Aside from the terrible lighting
and annoying camera
(I am sooooo over this Olympus FE 310
and have put on my Christmas wish list
Canon EOS 7D
a girl can dream, right?
So there it is..out there into the universe
a huge wish)
O.K. back to the face plate
What you cannot tell from the shot
is that there are several layers already
of chalk, and MSC
better known as
Mr. Super Clear
It's hard to see much difference
to this one below
that I shot right after the carving & sanding
and you were not here
to witness the application of paint
to the lips..
the wiping off..
the reapplication of paints..
the wiping off!!!!
then the decision..
to use mainly chalk
and highlight with a bit of paint
Of course, the chalk color I need
hmmmmmmm, I did not originally order..
there really IS a difference...
But I cannot go any further
until arrival of said NEW chalk
So we wait.
I don't intend to use a heavy hand
with this girl.
It will be light and as natural
as I can get it.
her eye chips will be changed.
Ohhhhhhh, I have some luscious eye chips
yes I do.
and she will have wispy eyelashes
then the decision comes about hair.
She may receive her same wig back
you know, the one I cut and styled
a nano second after she arrived
here back in 2007.
She looks fab with dark hair.
she may get the dusty pink mohair wig
that I first hoped to use
Isn't it delicious???
Christine Kennison created it
(known as Unicornmine on Flickr)
with a great process she calls
and you can find here HERE
I won't really know which hair to use
until Daria's make-up
and her eyes are in.
All in all, I can say the process is interesting
and rather exciting
My very first Blythe Custom
possibly my last.
