So I made another MH altered doll! This time it was for my sister in laws birthday! She is an avid collector of MH dolls and she loves Dios de Morte. First, I completely erased her face(with Tia Dalma I left her irises and pupils.). I repainted her face and boil curled her hair. I hand stitched her clothes. I definitely need to get better at the hand sewing. My daughter took most of these photos, her poses were so perfect!







And one in progress shot!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Lovely custom job! The facial repaint, hair, and dress are all stellar!  She'd be a fun friend for Skelita Calaveras.

She's so pretty!  I love her hair.  What kind of paint did you use for the faceup?  I use the cheap acrylics, but they always goop up on me.

I use artist acrylics. Liquitex, golden, and Daler Rowney. The key is to have patience and do thin coats and let them dry completely in between. I didn't have enough patience and she did goop up a bit. Thanks!!☺
