So this weekend I was able to finish up and photograph two new dolls that I was able to upload to my Etsy shop for purchase! This weeks offering happen to be a Ghoulia Yelps that includes a reroot of her hair as well as an Abbey Bomidable with her nails painted using O.P.I. nail lacquer.
As for both, I am quite proud of them! I love Abbeys large eyes and Ghoulia to me is just beautiful.
On both the factory paint was removed and their faces repainted using Prismacolor watercolor pencils and Faber-Castell pastels. Both were sealed using Mr. Super Clear UV Matte spray and glossed with Liquitex Gloss Varnish on their eyes and lips.
For Abbey, she was a pretty straight forward rework. Repainted, hair was washed, conditioned and restyled (though the glitter fibers in her hair did make for an interesting amount of lift!) and I also painted her talons with O.P.I nail laquer in OPI Ink and topped with Seche Vite top coat.
For Ghoulia, as I pointed out before, her hair had been cut by a previous owner and she was devoid of her bangs so she was in need of a reroot. For my first go at it I’m quite pleased and wanted to style her hair in a manner that would be simple enough that should her owner wish, it could be restyled with ease. She was rerooted with Dollyhairs nylon doll hair in Blueberry Muffin, Dragonfly and Poison Ivy. I also gave Ghoulia a light body blushing.
By clicking on the photos it will take you straight to their listings on my shop!
More will be coming soon as I plan on starting a new doll this weekend. Thank you again for looking and keeping up with me. As my shop grows, so too will my posts and my adventures in repainting! I also made sure to cross post everywhere and Chrysalis Creation can be found:
