Well here is my DIP for Wacky Fairy. I needle sculpted her features and then hid the stitches with paperclay over it. Shows how inexperienced I am in doing things with paper clay. I should have sanded the face down a bit more to make it more smooth. Tee...heee... I think her nose is a bit too much on the large side!. I painted the whole doll with gesso and then with acrylic paints. For the face painting I used all sorts of things. I used gel pens and colour pencils and my make up eye shadow and rouge and jacquard dyes etc. As I was not getting the look I wanted. Now I want to put the crackle medium on but thought if the pens ran then all my effort would be wasted so I sprayed it with a fixer. Then I thought the colour of the eyes had dulled so decided to go over with black. The result was I have actually spoilt her eyes. The black became too black and when I sprayed her again with fixer I over did it sheesh! So one eye has actually run. But then she is going to be a wackey fairy so does it matter very much?
