I finally finished Isabel, my rescue doll. I repainted her eyes, redid her lips and eyebrows, gave her freckles, and gave her new hair. I did her eyebrows with a brown watercolor pencil, same with her lips and freckles. Her eyes I just put more paint on, since they were kind of see-through. A close up of her freckles and eyes. I did the hair with a weave, and I love how it turned out! Her hair is so brushable, it’s soft, and I like the color.
The doll from the thrift store was $.50
The water color pencils were $6
The wig/weave was $5
Making the doll was fun, and although it didn’t turn out as well as I had wanted, I love this doll and I think it was worth it.
The doll’s aqua eyes, freckles and brown curly hair make me think medieval princess so I named her Isabel.
