I'm thrilled to start a beautiful Portrait Baby Doll for Baby Fahtima. This doll will be hand-crafted to look just like the real baby.
Fahtima will be based on Rosalie by Linde Scherer. This is my first time working with a doll created in Germany.
Rosalie already looked a lot like the beautiful Miss Fahtima, but I did a little pre-work to increase the resemblance. I modified the eye sockets to accept larger eyes so they better mimic the glamorous round shape of Fahtima's eyes. The rest of the likeness will be achieved through hand-painting.
I really like this doll because all the fingers are separated - which is super cute and creates an even more lifelike baby.
Once I finished inspecting the doll, it was time for Baby's First Bubble Bath. A warm soapy lather in dish detergent helped remove all factory oils, dirt and even oils from my hands. Next, she'll get a cool bath in rubbing alcohol to further remove any impurities. This process ensures that there is nothing on the surface of the vinyl to interfere with the paint.
Once she's all clean, we'll start painting!
