Where and When: 11/11/12 (Sunday) 3:00-6:00PM in Workshop 2 (Los Angeles C)!
What: There will be tables in a big room where you can put your stuff down and trade/bargain with other owners. You can only sell BJD-related items.
It’ll be right after my face-up demonstration at 2:00-3:00PM (same place), so I’d love it if people stopped by to check out the demo too before the swapmeet!
Yeah no biggie! With Mars, he doesn’t actually have teeth so you have to fake it! What you can do is— since his mouth is fairly deep— get a thin but long brush and have just dark-ish paint on the tip of it. Fill in a shape carefully and use light layers so it’s not gloopy. Then after it dries, take a white-ish color (I never use pure white— I usually use an off-white, because it looks more natural to me) and then paint within the dark colors you did. :> Angling the head will make it easier— try to make sure that you’re moving the head to get to the spots you need to get to instead of bending the brush, so your brush isn’t going all over the place and getting the rest of the lips dirty.
Hello everyone! I’ve decided that after I finish this current batch of face-ups, I’m going to close up shop for a while. The biggest reason behind this is actually that I’ve had my airbrush for almost a year now, but have still barely broken it in because I’ve been doing face-ups. Feels like such a shame, considering I invested so much money into it but haven’t gotten to really enjoy using it!
I have decided that I want to concentrate on practicing with it for a while by doing face-ups for myself, my family (sister has dolls, some relatives are interested in getting started with some too— exciting for me!), and close friends. I will still, however, do the free face-up giveaway this year— maybe two more times before the year is over.
I may or may not open shop next year, as a result. We shall see! Things may change. Thanks for your support and patience.
Anyway, I think I’ll do the next free face-up giveaway mid-August. More info then!
Hey everyone! Just wanted to say that because recently I’ve started painting vinyl dolls, I’ve become more interested in Dollfie Dream style heads. Please message me if you have a Dollfie Dream style head (Volks, SQ Lab) and maybe we can work something out. Since I have not painted one before, I am unable to guarantee how good the results will be— hence why the face-up will be free. : )
