Thursday, January 28, 2010

So you only paint by numbers, or at least, you did back in high school! Well don’t worry, I have broken down how to paint a Dolly Face in to 3 easy steps. … but there are 4 videos you cry ….. yes, that’s because my naughty little doggies decided to start barking very loudly right in the middle of the last tutorial video!!!

How to sketch your Dolly Face.

Now ….. Let’s start painting! Loooook into my eyes!

Time for the cheeks!

And now for the mouth….

Now wait for your New Dolly Face to dry and gently rub off the pencil & admire your fabuluse work!!!

Thanks for Watching, and Happy Painting!

I have a question - what type of paint do you use?

Sarah February 18, 2010 at 1:47 PM  

Hi Aleta, I use regular acrylic paints. You can find them at any craft store :) They dry fast and they are odorless. Let me know if you need any other help, take care Sarah

Sarah, what a great opportunity you've done to give back to those less fortunate. I know the joy my little craft toys make to my 2 little boys. I want to give just a little bit of that joy to other little kiddies. I can't wait to make dolls for your dolly drive.

I am so happy I found this site. Thus far I have just looked at the face painting because I want to change from embroidered faces to painted ones. Your steps are easy to follow. Thanks so much and congratualtions on such a wonderful project.

I have a friend that makes beautiful pieced quilts for the children of Haiti. She has delivered several hundred already. They are works of art, and she always attaches a stuff toy to match the quilt. She was wanting to attach some dollies to the quilts and we were not having any luck finding any; until I found your website! I will let you know how my attempt at doll making goes!
