Greetings! And welcome to the
January l, 2001 mini issue of
FRILLS AND FANCY.

In this issue I will show basic painting techniques.  These can be done with acrylic or china paints.   The point is how to do it in layers and the colors used.

Mold is by Stacy Hofman.

Step Seven - paint lips and beauty mark. 
To finish (when using acrylic paints), simply spray two light coats with matt acrylic spray.
I have dolls in customer's collections, since my beginning in l989.  These beautiful ACRYLIC painted creations are just as beautiful as always.  Some people worry about the acrylic scraping off.  To these people - I ask WHAT are you doing scraping a piece of art?   I personally believe if you take your nail and scrape one of my creations, you get what you deserve <G>.  As long as you treat these dolls as treasures - they will remain looking that way.
