Now for some real magic!
One thing I love most about reborn dolls is the fact that they appear to have hair growing out of their scalps. This is thanks to the process of micro-rooting - inserting premium hair a strand or two at a time in a natural hair growth pattern.
Before starting, I painted the hair growth pattern on his head so I'd know which way to angle the hair as I'm rooting.
Then, I rooted his eyebrows. One thing I learned from this experience so far: blonde hair is very hard to see! Once I had a section of hair rooted, I could see it well. But looking at one strand at a time against peach skin took bright lights and high magnification. Good thing I'm equipped for that!
