Default Body freckles, sunburn, and tan lines on silicone doll

Applying freckles, sunburn, and tan lines to a silicone doll

This is Angela, one of the teachers here at Stepford-on-Sea Finishing School for Girls, and she has just returned from an educational cruise in the Mediterranean. (She is a DS Dolls 158 with the Fleur head.)

For the freckles, I used moderately thin brown poster paint dabbed on with a large make-up brush, then I dabbed the resulting specks of paint with a finger to flatten and spread them.

For the sunburn, I used the same brush (after I dried it) to apply blusher. Normally I apply corn starch powder (Johnson's Baby Powder here in Britain) first, both to make the skin feel smooth and to make the blusher go farther, but I did not do that this time. The result is a more patchy appearance. In addition, to obtain tan lines, I put temporary bra and panties on her before I applied the sunburn.


Bra and panties as paint and blusher masks

She is hanging from a hook screwed into a wooden beam, to which the little DS Dolls S-hook and Ray Rentell's nifty eye-bolt is attached. You can also use the rather bizarre body hanging bracket offered by DS Dolls, but Ray's eye bolt is so much simpler and easier to use.







"Can't a lady do her body make-up without everyone looking?"

Here she is hanging from the DS Dolls through-head hang bracket.



Spending more time on it would have resulted in a more even appearance. (But who has more time?)

Well there's inventiveness for you.
Just a thought, doesn't the blushing rub off onto the clothes ?

And just in case anyone is interested the eye bolt is 6 mm, easily found on ebay by a search .
Glad it turned out to be useful

Yes, but only on the inside, which you do not see normally.



This is Greta, incidentally, a DS Dolls Serena; their other older-looking head. It takes only moments to swap heads, but it takes a while to fix up her hair.



The daylight is dull here this weekend, which makes photography difficult.

It was way past the postman's time, but it is always possible that a meter reader or someone will turn up!

The postman would not be surprised anyway. First thing he sees when I open the front door is one of my dolls sitting in the corridor looking up from her book and leaning sideways a bit to see past me who is at the door. And, partly obscured by the kitchen door beyond, four doll legs in high heels. Then, if I have remembered to position the kitchen door exactly on a mark I inked on the floor, the mirror hanging on that door shows another doll (Virginia the headmistress) standing in her formal-looking vintage attire.
