These are pretty bad photos, so not really easy to judge by, but I wanted to show you how we are getting on, me and BellaBronte's doll :)

She's coming along! (https://flic.kr/p/BHDhze)

and with a pretty filter...!

I haven't added detail yet to her eyebrows and I will be painting on some lower lashes too... but these are the most difficult parts, so I'm going to call it a night and come back to her with some more courage in tow! :D
I look forward to sharing daytime photos and when she's done and sealed, I'll affix her eyelashes and put her eyes in and hopefully she'll be ready to roll :)

Looking great!!! Simple and sweet.

December 5th, 2015, 07:12 AM
She is looking wonderful~ have you decided on a sculpt for yourself?

December 5th, 2015, 10:10 AM
She already looks beautiful. You did an amazing job, Amal!

December 5th, 2015, 10:48 AM
Amal she is beautiful- so delicate and ethereal! I love her eyebrows. Eyelashes and brows are the bane of my life- so difficult to do! He he, no caffeine for you tomorrow lol!!!

December 5th, 2015, 11:33 AM
Oh Amal, she is looking so lovely...lucky owner! <3

December 5th, 2015, 12:52 PM
Beautiful, Amal, absolutely beautiful. What more can I say? I will get you a special Christmas present for doing this for me. My Christmas present was this beautiful faceup.

December 5th, 2015, 03:56 PM
She is looking so lovely, you're doing an amazing job!

December 5th, 2015, 06:38 PM
Looks great already. Love the shape of her eyebrows.

December 5th, 2015, 08:43 PM
Looking very good, already! Can't wait to see her finished!

December 6th, 2015, 03:03 AM
Looks super pretty so far x

December 7th, 2015, 01:16 AM
You're doing so well Amal!! Beautiful work, she will be such a little treasure!!

December 7th, 2015, 09:06 PM
You are all so kind and lovely! I really appreciate the kind words and encouragement <3

She still needs gloss and eyelashes... and eyes! But I managed to get some clearer photos:

I'm debating whether I should darken her eyebrows just a tad...?

I'm really learning a lot! I am so excited now about painting my doll soooooon!! :)

December 7th, 2015, 09:07 PM
She is wonderful! I like her eyebrows

December 7th, 2015, 09:11 PM
She is so beautiful. I'm sure that BellaBronte must be over the moon <3

December 7th, 2015, 09:14 PM
Beautiful, Amal, absolutely beautiful. What more can I say? I will get you a special Christmas present for doing this for me. My Christmas present was this beautiful faceup.

Oh no, no, please! I just really, really hope that you will be pleased! It's been an extremely valuable experience for me and I'm really luck to have held a resin ED before my name came up to order - it made the decision so much clearer! <3

December 7th, 2015, 09:47 PM
She is beautiful Amal! And I really love the eyebrows (I always think they are the most difficult to do out of everything!) Her new personality is already shining through even without her eyes in!

December 7th, 2015, 11:02 PM
Oh Amal, she is gorgeous. I am over the moon with her. I can't wait to see her for real. I love her eyebrows just the way they are. Thankyou so much. How talented are you?:

December 8th, 2015, 12:00 AM
Beautiful face up. Love how she turned out.

December 8th, 2015, 01:17 AM
She is looking more beautiful, each day!

December 8th, 2015, 01:38 AM
I agree with Bella...she is perfect just the way she is! <3

December 8th, 2015, 07:17 PM
Beautiful and a perfect face up!

December 8th, 2015, 07:42 PM
Thank you, friends!! <3<3<3

Now, let me just scream... Aaaaarrrrrrghhhh!!!!

Oh, my word! ...I used to consider myself quite dextrous... but for the life of me I can't get these eyes and eyelashes in, they are just Aaaaarrrrrrghhhh!!!! Lol O_O:Uh::O

December 8th, 2015, 10:34 PM
Thank you, friends!! <3<3<3

He he! It wasn't too long ago that I was struggling with another little beauty! I mention no names lol!!!!!!!

December 9th, 2015, 03:41 AM
She is just lovely!

December 9th, 2015, 08:02 AM
I absolutely ADORE her lips!

December 9th, 2015, 02:33 PM
She is very beautiful ... a perfect princess. look forward to seeing the finished pics.

December 9th, 2015, 07:29 PM
He he! It wasn't too long ago that I was struggling with another little beauty! I mention no names lol!!!!!!!

...I have learnt my lesson!! A taste of my own medicine! :D

Thank you so much to everyone for your kind comments - you warm the cockles of my heart on these cold English mornings! <3 :D

I think these are her last photos before she returns home! - I will miss her little face!

It's been such a pleasure to paint her - such a beautiful sculpt <3

December 9th, 2015, 07:38 PM
Aww!.... I love her! So delicate and romantic! Wow, I am impressed! BEAUTIFUL!

December 9th, 2015, 09:34 PM
She is so BEAUTIFUL!! Seriously, Amal, you did an amazing job. Tbh I think I like your faceup better than Marina's. I'm sure BellaBronte will be over the moon when she receives her girl.

December 9th, 2015, 09:34 PM
She is gorgeous Amal! I really like her with this coloured wig- it brings out the colour of her eyes beautifully, although with this colouring she will suit many different colours. I bet you will miss her when she goes lol!

December 9th, 2015, 09:56 PM
I feel so lucky to have an amazing artist like Amal to do this faceup for me. Amal, you will be bombarded with requests now. I think her tone is such that will suit any colour wig but that one in particular looks great on her. She will look amazing in Barbarinas beautiful corset. I will post pics of her when she gets home. Yyeeeyyy! Marina has got serious competition. He he.

December 9th, 2015, 10:18 PM
Absolutely stunning girl. Amal, you did an outstanding job.

December 9th, 2015, 11:41 PM
You did a wonderfull job on her ! I realy love the eyebrows !

December 10th, 2015, 01:22 AM
Look out Amal...I can see a beeline of blank Enchanted Dolls beating a path to your door! :) You have done such an amazing job painting this doll, she really turned out so beautifully! <3
And I just have to comment especially on those fingernails. When I received my RED I couldn't even see her fingernails until I put my reading glasses on...and even then I struggled. So how anyone paints a french manicure on them is quite beyond me! :)

December 10th, 2015, 03:57 AM
Yep I agree with everyone else, simply amazing work, and Elise asks if she can come to your place, if she needs her nails redone, or anything else!

December 10th, 2015, 05:43 AM
She is very pretty! I agree with Eiko, and I think you have done a wonderful job maintaining Marina's style.

December 10th, 2015, 11:23 AM
Gorgeous! I love her lip color!

December 10th, 2015, 11:26 AM
OMG! Amal! You are genious! Awesome face! ♥! ♥!

December 11th, 2015, 01:46 AM
I just found this thread today. I didn't know this painting was going on. I am so impressed. You have done a meticulous job on the painting. You must have super duper eyes. I agree about the eyebrows. Fantastic! Your comment on putting the eyes and eyelashes in doesn't surprise me. When I saw how small the head was and where the headcap is located I thought there is no way I could do that. My dolls will never be getting new eyes. I had at one time wanted some painted eyes but that has been put on the back burner after seeing how it would be to put them in. I love this paint job a lot and I am sure the owner will very pleased. Can't wait to see what you do with your own new resin doll.

December 11th, 2015, 09:42 PM
You really did an amazing job

December 12th, 2015, 02:26 AM
Wow!! She looks very beautiful!! You did an
amazing job!! X

December 12th, 2015, 06:42 PM
Super work, beautifully defined yet delicate brows. Amazing!

December 12th, 2015, 06:54 PM
Wow Aneemal she is just beautiful. So delicate and stunning. Thank you so much for sharing the whole process, it's very inspiring.

December 14th, 2015, 01:20 AM
Amoreen, thank you so much! It makes me happy to know you like it :)
Eiko, all I can say is "knock me down with a feather"! :D I am so surprised and immensely encouraged by your generous comments <3
Bibarina, I do hope she can wear different colours well - I think her owner has a darker colour in mind for her! Oh and yes, definitely she will be missed, but I hope not for too long as I desperately await my own newcomer!! >_<
BellaBronte, I just can't wait now to return her to you!!! You've been so super and supportive and this has been fun for me! ^_^ I am the lucky one!
Suok2011, thank you! That means a lot, as I admire the work you did on your girls too!
Takuya, thank you so much for the kind words! My hands were shaking a little, I must admit!
merrijane, hehe! I will gladly accept any Enchanted Doll at my door! :D:D Maybe I should install a cat-flap! >O< The manicure was not easy - there was a lot of squinting and hesitating!! Before Monika travelled back to Aus, she very generously bestowed me with a great number of wonderful things including a magnifying glass which I am definitely going to put to use after this!
annina, the beautiful Elise is welcome any time!!!!!!!!!!! <3 And I do hope that it will only ever be her nails that need redoing, because her face is absolutely one of my very favouritest!!
allurose, thank you sooo much! I am floored by such kind comments <3
Sabrina, thank you! I am so happy you like it!
Aeroksana, thank you truly! I feel Marina should take the credit! I just added some colour to what was already a beautiful face :)
Shashy, thank you so much! I feel so happy to receive such positive comments! Oh yes, my eyesight may have suffered, hehe!... Actually, I have gotten used to working on slightly smaller faces, so the size here was actually a bit of a relief, if you can believe it! :O But yes, I do not look forward to struggling with the eyes. >_<
Galactica, thank you, I am so glad you like it!
lynne, thank you so much, that is very kind of you!
Leadinglady, thank you! - I am so pleased that the eyebrows came out well! It definitely helps to keep practicing and keep observing the way other dolls are painted too.
PaigeViolet, thank you for the kind words! I really appreciate it <3

She's so beautiful! I wish I can get my hands on just one of resin enchanted doll!! Dreams!!!
