more on Tifa

July 18th, 2007 (12:45 pm)

Well, we cannot get the Volks eye decals to work at all. They refuse to detach from the backing.

So, last night I bought a Dollfie Plus that has a head with eyeholes and a pair of brown eyes. I would have ordered just the head but I could not find one of that particular model-the eyeshape was nice. I suppose I could have contacted Mimi about it but I decided to just get the whole doll and be done with it. I figured the extra body can be used with the head that does not have eyeholes and I can play with painting eyes on her and such as practice before working on Tifa proper. I just hope the plastic matches.

I also bought some Volks paints, some Volks skintone pastels and two brushes so I can attempt to get Tifa up and running for rat. And she will have a little outfit that is not Tifa-wear but at least she will have some fabric to wear until I can find black shorts and a white teeshirt for her game outfit and the vest/skirt/pants mix for her Advent Children outfit. I am still looking at boots, too.

Naturally, rat would be more than happy with Tifa fighting bare-breasted with just the black shorts and suspenders... *snerk*

Good luck with working on your faceup skills. I know for a fact that I suck at that type of thing! LOL! ^____________~

Well, I know I can blush a face pretty well. The first time I did it on one of my practice heads, it looked pretty good.

I painted 25mm metal figures centuries ago so I am hoping some of those skills will come back long enough so I can get Tifa going. I have to assume I will use MSC on her plastic face just like I do a resin face.

Best of luck with her -- I cannot wait to see how she turns out, so make sure you keep us updated, 'kay? (and good luck with the faceupping, too!)

a need to rest

I will take photos of the travesty as I work on her! *laughs* It's going to be interesting...
