WIP Painted Face

This is the head, painted and sealed!


I finally got the courage to use
 the new suri alpaca hair
from Bravo the alpaca.

This is Bravo.

You can buy his fibre

It went on
much more easily
than I expected,
and it hangs beautifully.

I'm a suri convert!

Photos tomorrow!

    1. Thank you! I was really worried about the fibre, but it went on easily. A little time-consuming, but less fiddly and messy than I expected.

    1. Thank you, Penny! She's been a real sweetheart to make (you know how some dolls come easy and some are a tussle from start to finish?) and I'm enjoying watching her come together.

    1. Thank you, Shashi! She's done, bar the trimming, as I'm still waiting to hear from the customer.
