Today we begin a Portrait Doll of Zachary Jones. Over the course of the next few months, we will gradually transform Donna RuBert's Kitten sculpt into a gorgeous little bi-racial boy.
As always, I began with a thorough inspection of the vinyl parts to ensure they were free of factory defects.
Then we went outside and took the before photos pictured here. Unfortunately, Zachary doesn't look much like anyone in particular right now. But stay tuned as we transform this doll into a baby!
Once the before pictures were complete, Zachary had his first bubble bath. I carefully scrub all the vinyl parts to ensure that they are free from factory grease, oils from my hands and any other debris that could interfere with the painting. After a thorough lather and rise, he was then wiped down with alcohol to remove any remaining residue. I gave him the rest of the night to rest and dry - for tomorrow we paint!
