    Great to hear that the de-face-up went well. You must be very relieved Syaron. I recently did some body blushing on my Popovy doll and the same thing happened, the pinks looked red after MSC. I guess doing face-ups is one big learning curve.

    You are so right LeadingLady! I was so surprised that my delicate pink body blushing suddenly looked like Isabeau had spent too much time on the beach! So now I am going to take my more time and layer, layer, layer! I am also thinking I am going to make her some painted eyes using some faux pearls I have of the right size. I like the soft expressions of painted eyes. At least I have some experience with that.

    I think I was just so excited to have her in my own hands that I just got overly anxious to have her done. Now that I see I can remove my faux pas so easily without damage I am much calmer and ready to try try try again!

    Removing Faceup

    Glad you had a good experience. I have had the same problem with too much pink. I often use a peachy brown color to blush now, instead of rosy pink. It still looks pinkish in contrast to the yellow resin. Example: https://flic.kr/p/rEgzL3

    You are right about layers Syaron - it makes correcting any mishaps so much easier. I think the peachy brown looks good allurose. I think less is more when painting RED's tiny faces!

    Thank you. Yes, the forum is awesome. I had some nice people in my own local community teach me quickly the first time, but it's like you said. Each time you do it you will get better. I find that very fun.

    Isabeau's updated face. Her blush is very light here. But maybe I will add more.
