Just a little experimenting...

I guess you've noticed that I've still not finished
my little paper clay doll yet.
That's what I do.
When I worry I'm going to mess something up, well,
I stop.

Yes, I know when I paint her little face that if I don't like it
I can simply paint over it all and begin again.
But I really don't want to.
I want her to be precious right away!!

Anyway, I love Karen Milstein's beautiful paintings and
she offered a eye painting tutorial in her shop SO
I had to try it. Just to give me a push to finish the doll especially.

I didn't have the materials that she requested but I made
an attempt using paints that I have and winging it!
I just wanted to share my first attempt at painting an eye ~
I used simple craft acrylic paint and water.

I'm pretty pleased with the outcome but it doesn't really look like a little girl eye....
I'll definitely have to practice more!!!

I also wanted to share that I'm having a little August sale in my Etsy shop!!!
Simply type in
in the coupon code box when checking out
and receive 25% OFF your entire purchase!!!
Just four days ends Sunday night, Aug. 10th.

I hope you're having a wonderful week!!!

Wishing you a great Thursday sweet friends,
hugs and love,

Wow! Your eye is beautiful! You'll get the little girl eye too, it's only a matter of practice and time. You are very talented in so many areas and are an inspiration to me.

I LOVE your painting of the eye. It is very intimidating to me to do faces/eyes/nose & such. PRACTICE I know is the answer but, who has time..... HUGS!

Oh my, you are so talented. The eye is beautiful, my friend.

Hugs from here

When I saw that eye I thought you were staring at me. It looks so real! Your doll will be looking great? XO Sue
