Jade - (In private collection)

I wanted to create a doll that looked innocent & sad all at the same time, I think she came pretty good.
I loved her eyes the most & all her tiny freckles.

Thank you so much. I Gse liquitex soft fluid & Golden fluid acrylics.
I didn't use any pastels on this doll or any other paints other than
acrylics. I started using pastels not that long ago, I first bought an expensive
brand, can't think of the name now & then a bought a cheap brand, can't think of the name
either, I am most likely gonna give up using pastels & just go back to using an airbrush for
blushing. It's harder but I think it looks better. I don't know, I haven't made up my mind yet.
Maybe I just need to find a different method of using pastels. I am still learning with all
the new techniques I see people using. I never thought of using pencils for example, I am
gonna give them a try & see if they make my life easier. I do everything free hand, I work on one
eye at a time & I just copy what I did to the first eye & so forth. Never thought of using dotting tools,
which I just heard recently too. I am learning a lot from my fellow DA Artists. ♥

I have seen so many different methods of doing face-ups...and each one is a little bit different from the others. It is amazing how people can think of using things like dotting tools. I never would have thought of that either! I also do all my porcelain doll eyes freehand. The hardest part is getting them the same so that they don't look like "the deer in the headlights". I used to end up with that look a LOT when I first started until I took a couple seminars on painting porcelain doll eyes. Have you ever heard of Dianna Effner? Here is one of her website: and She not only makes porcelain doll molds from scratch, she is now making vinyl collectable dolls. They are the little 13" Little Darling Dolls. There are many yahoo groups devoted just to her vinyl dolls! She is the one who taught me how to paint the eyes. She is an amazing person!
Thanks for the information. I will write this down and look for them when I go to the craft store!!!!

what brand of pastels are you using? They appear to be very nicely pigmented! I had a hard time blushing my draculaura with mine!

And man, those eyes are absolutely phenomenal! You're really good !

Hi, the one's I use are the off brand by Michaels,
I found they work better than any other more costly
brand. Hope this helps.
How are you applying the pastels on your dolls???

Thank you ♥

Really? mm i would have thought a more costly brand like faber castels might have been better :o I'll be sure to pick em up next time then!

I'm using makeup brushes and watercolour brushes to apply the pastels, they seem to pick up the pastels better than other stuff I've tried so far :)

Yeah, I trid all the "Better" pastels myself & I can't
tell the difference, but these stick better for sure & I
don't know why. The brand I got is called "Artists Loft"
I researched for you, lol, cause I threw away the box.
I believe that's Michaels brand but not totally positive.

I use a Q-tip to apply the pastels on as stated in my tutorial.
It's the best way to do body & facial shading. Just dampen your
Q-tip, rub on it your pastel of choice & onto dolls, you can use the
other end of your Q-tip to blend it in. You don't have to dampen your
Try this without dampening your Q-tip first, you have to rub your
Q-tip pretty hard on the pastels though to pick up color. Hope this helps. ♥
