So I waited patiently for the crystal clear resin from little-windows.com to come. It finally came. I glossed two of my babies eyes and honestly they look so pretty when they were finished drying. It took about 2 full days for them not to be tacky. But the shine in them is so cute. They almost look teary. I followed Kim's tutorial from Custom Doll Baby.
I am not unhappy that I did use the Little Windows resin as per a tutorial from a very talented artist Kim from Custom Doll Baby. I also used it to polish up the lips, the inner nares and the nails. Each came out perfectly beautiful. I was more happy with this Gracie Rose's feet than I was with Celeste's feet. Her nails looked darling after I used the resin on them. I also had used varnish on Celeste's toenails which looks great but did not cure after two days. I did have to baby sit the resin in her eyes and I had to make sure eyelashes were already glued in and that the eyes were cleaned up before starting. I used wedges to help stabilize the head while I carefully brushed the resin into her eyes and onto other areas.
Granted I learned a lot and that my eyebrows are a little too dark because I had to make them match her hair better which meant a second coat of paint (sadly). But the gloss in the acrylic Pabol eyes and on the lips just looks so lifelike. I was thrilled when a facebook friend told me that she thought Gracie Rose was sooo beautiful..yay!
Thanks for visiting. Much love to you!
