The Bald and the beautiful......


Just started dabbling in oils for the first time ever! I think I like it, but it takes some getting use to that is for sure! The dry time is much longer for one thing, but thanks to some very smart gals, I am now clued in on how to change that for next time. Thanks sweeties,( you know who you are)

Now I just need to decide what type hair to do... Should it be simply painted on ? Or maybe adding some dimension with clay? Or even maybe some mohair? I 'd love your opinion if you wouldn't mind?
Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, she has a lovely face Nan. You are doing a wonderful job :)

I think you should give her the lovey hair that you usually give your dolls..they always look so beautiful.

Blessings,
Doreen

By the by, I forgot to say how very, very lovely her sweet little face is, and the fact that she merely resembles Susan's tells us how wonderfully expert you are, fabulous Nancy!

What a sweet and beautiful face - it's amazing for your first time working in oils. I think she would look great with mohair.. or maybe painted hair.
