With Scarlet's painting all done we're ready to get rooting! She has very thick hair rooted with Collector's Traditional Doll hair plugs in Ruby Red Curve. I love how the bend in the mohair always frames her face!
Now that the baseline painting is done, I'm ready to add Scarlett's two front teeth so she'll look just like the real baby. Check out the sculpting footage:
We finally rooted our way across the back of Alissa Beth's head. I like to think of this section - ear-to-ear as 50% of the way done. Now we're ready to work the hair that frames her face. Loving this pretty hair!
Alissa Beth has gorgeous blonde hair with auburn highlights. I love rooting blonde hair because of the way it glistens in the light like sunshine.
I don't love rooting blonde hair because a single strand of blonde mohair up against a Caucasian scalp is impossible to see.
Fortunately, I figured out a trick: indirect light! If I position my lamp just right, those blonde hairs start to glisten. Then I can see the hair's I've rooted so I don't keep sticking more hair in the same spot. Now we're cooking with gas!

More than a year ago, I unboxed my first Realborn in the hoping of creating a doll for myself. Much to my disappointment, the paintbrushes I got in Evon Nather's hair painting class came with blue handles that left stains all over my doll. So I never finished.
Yet here we are so many months later getting this little guy ready to go home with a "boo boo" discount! It all works out in the end.
Check out his photos and videos on Presley's Page.
Even though this is a play doll, I still can resist the urge to do a little "reborning" for added realism.
Shading is a great way to make are the curve and creases more defined by making them darker. She's look very nice so far!
