Every good process starts with a plan.
So that my hair follows a natural hair growth pattern, I like to paint my growth pattern before I start rooting.
I don't typically cure this painting. Its just a reference that washes off when I'm done. (Artist Note: if you warm your head, not all of the paint will wash off, so don't leave any lines you'll regret later! Keep them as hair-looking as possible.)
I found a really cool picture of a baby on the internet that I'm using as a reference for Britany's hair pattern. Britany is a Masterpiece Collection doll, after all. She's been an incredible opportunity for me to push the boundaries of my painting technique and I'm very pleased with the results. Why not also go all out on the rooting?
So excited! Time to lay down some hairs!
