Stages of work

Surface preparation

If it is rough, remove them with emery cloth. Next, the workpiece must be primed with white glue, diluted with water in a ratio of about 1: 2.

Creating a sketch

First, on paper, you should draw the appearance of the doll with the smallest details, and then make a drawing with a pencil on the form itself. If something does not work out, the pencil can be easily erased with a regular eraser and correct the failed fragment.

Execution of the main figure

Carefully apply gouache on a painted scarf, sundress, hair. Apply the main lines with little mashed toothpicks, and then blend them a little.

Development of small parts

The most important task is face painting. Mark yellow areas with yellow paint, then highlight the shadows with a darker shade, then paint the darkest areas with a brown color. Light places paint over white paint. Perform the same procedure with your hands. Color the eye iris, then apply eyelashes and eyebrows. To give a lively look, apply a few drops of white paint to the area of ??the pupils using the same toothpick, paint a sundress, a kokoshnik, earrings and beads in the spot technique.
