flying through clouds of uncertainty on wings of existential dread
There is something remarkably satisfying about drawing a jar full of eyeballs. In related news, I’m gradually turning a Barbie into Willow Rosenberg. So far I’ve repainted her face (and shaved away most of her upper lip), crocheted her a tiny sweater, and made her tights; next I want to make her a darker denim skirt, some tiny jewelry, and Willow’s backpack, so if anyone has good backpack research, send it my way! I’m also recoloring her sneakers. What else? Laptop, stakes, maybe a notebook covered in the protection charm she was working on in Gingerbread? I’d like to give her Alyson Hanigan’s tiny widow’s peak, but I’m not sure if I can make it happen without creating a horror. I might practice on a shitty doll first.
Could you draw it on with watercolor pencils or paint it on with acrylic paint?
I watch a LOT of doll videos where they take off the old face with nail polish remover and put the faces back on with paint and pencils and LOTS of Mr. Super Clear, which is a spray on fixative that almost all of them insist you HAVE to use because it’s the best. Or something.
That’s exactly what I did; I left her eyes alone but redid her brows and lips.
I saw a video on the My Froggy Stuff channel last night where she just painted over the eyes..didn’t take them off entirely, but used paint to sort of fix them to look less weird.
That sweater is amazing! You are so talented, Nara!
