I've been really busy lately but haven't really been posting, apologies for this.
The fact is I've got seven babies to go out fairly soon, the work backed up a little from the Spring when I wasn't well for a while and also my partner Joe was needing some extra attention, so things started to back up. Anybody who knows me, knows that wherever possible I do meet deadlines but some of the babies are going out a couple of months later than previously promised.
Anyway, so I've been really busy, and this is the first of these seven babies - a customer who has had a few babies from me and asked if I could do an AA baby, and I thought YES I've been intending to get to grips with black skin colourings in a while so this was a chance. So immediately after this, two sisters who were each waiting for two dolls each, told me they wanted their babies in a darker skin tone similar to biracial, and then baby no.6 also the customer asked for biracial - so it's been a really a lot of fun.
So here is baby no.1, my Joseph sculpt, in AA colouring. I think he is maybe a touch darker in real life than in the photos - not easy to get skin tones exact on photos. So I'll be pushing on with details and then hair with this one while I work on the other six bubbas.
I'm going away for a few days towards the end of June so my aim is to finish the painting on all seven babies before my holiday, and then can root and finish them when I get home.
So watch this space, I'll post finish photos of them all.
Bye for now, xxx
