Fahtima has gotten a lot accomplished since my last post.
We've done several layers of her custom blend flesh tone to bring out her rich, golden brown complexion.
While working the complexion layers, I also began shading. Shading brings a richness and depth to the baby's complexion by deepening skin folds and creases. Shading also brings out the lifelike coloring of the nail beds and knuckles. That's actually one of my favorite features on a hand-painted doll that you never see on factory painted dolls. Her little hands and feet are looking so cute!
To finalize her skin tone, I gave her a "Gold Wash." LOL I created a diluted custom blend of Raw Sienna and just a tiny bit of Yellow to really bring out her golden undertones.
After a little more shading on the nail beds, we'll be ready to start adding our blushing layers.
