Finished pictures added!

Post by Elle Rae » Wed Mar 29, 2017 4:27 pm

I recently purchased Willow by LTR and have begun giving her a makeover. So far I have repainted her face, started tidying up her hairline, and removed her eyebrows. I plan to add some baby hairs around her hairline, and I was going to give her very fine eyebrows, but now I'm not so sure. I really like her without them! I restored another Willow a couple of years ago, and ended up wishing I hadn't given her eyebrows, maybe this is one of those sculpts that looks better without them?! I'd love to hear your thoughts, this is giving me an unnecessary level of anxiety. :lol:

Are you going to root them or paint them? She's already had them rooted before. I'd very lightly root them with super fine hair and if you don't like them, pull them back out. I'd simply use a super tiny needle like 46g. In my opinion, since her hair is so dark and she has so much of it, I would want eyebrows. I think with so much on her head, she needs them.

Good luck.
HAVE A WONDERFUL DOLLY DAY!!
Hugs, Erin

I agree with Erin. With all that dark hair, she needs rooted eyebrows.

I vote for the rooted brows too. Also, if I may say this, I think you need to somehow make her eyelashes wispy-er if that's possible. Pretty little girl.

I only ever root brows, not a fan of painted brows on silicones. Thank you for the suggestion :) Wish me luck!

You all were right, she definitely needed brows :) Sorry for the terrible lighting, this was under my lamp late Sunday night.

She is still not quite finished yet, I am trying to even out her hairline yet. I added some hair yesterday but didn't quite finish before work. Just thought I would post a progress pic. Thanks again for your help, I'm glad I listened!
