Watch the 2019 - updated video tutorial!!! 5 Methods!!! Hooray!
Quickly Learn 5 Easy Methods using Pastels, Wax Crayons, Fabric Marker Pens, Acrylic Paint, and Blusher (makeup). Whether you like a bold Kawaii Cute look or a soft Art Doll one, there's a technique for you!
You can achieve this look using either one of these 3 methods:
.... with all of these methods I suggest you do a test cheek or two on some scrap first!
You can achieve a different look using a different color. Pinks tones, Brown Tones and Peach Tones all look very pretty!
You can achieve a different look with the amount of cheek color you add. Soft and light hints at a cheek, medium looks like a natural glow, and define looks rosy!
When should I pop my cheeks on my dolly?
I recommend you create your face BEFORE you sew up your doll until you are used to these methods .. that way if you make a mistake or they look like your 3 year old got a hold of it (it happens to the best of us don't worry!) .. you won't have to scrap your whole doll ... just simply re-do your face!
Why do my cheeks look different on this softie compared to my doll?
Remember - the color of your cheeks will change with the color of your face fabric - always test first!
Can I wash the doll now?
If you set your fabric paint (following the manufactures instruction) you should be able to hand wash & spot clean. I would suggest only spot cleaning for the last two methods.
