A few years back, I took a class with Barbara Willis, by the way, she is one of my favorite teachers, wonderful lady, anyway, we learned how to sculpt a face, took a mould inprint from the face to make a paper mache mask, which was then covered with knitted fabric and then painted with pencils, markers, eyeshadows or whatever you wanted to use. For my doll faces I prefer regular eyeshadow and blush, which you can buy cheap at the Drugstore, Walmart, Target or whatever store you prefer. It doesn't have to be expensive and it goes a long way. After painting the face, I sealed it with an acrylic spray on sealer, but make sure it is the kind so the colors don't run. For hair we used all kinds of wonderful organza type ribbon in different colors, matching the clothes of the doll. It will give the doll a total different look, than putting ordinary hair on her. I love this technique. This doll is a tassle doll and has no legs. Isn't she beautiful!
