First I make the head, if the head turns out good, I make the body.
I don't particularly like making the body but if I like the head I can't wait to make her/him a body.
Front of the head.I'm checking the profile
The head is sewn together and now I needle felt a small pompom to fill in the nose.
With a invisible ink marker I draw the features
I'll paint the features with Gesso first
Time for a cup of coffee and a stroopwafel-cookie, in the meantime the gesso will dry.
I paint her features with acrylic paint and Pastel
Here she is, she has come to life and I gave her ears immediately, cause I wanted to tell her how sweet she is.
I can't wait now to make her a body, tomorrow I'll show you!
