Welcome to Hitty Bee’s Classroom! In Doll Painting 2 with Hitty Anne I will show you how to paint simple, classic Hitty Doll features on a Hitty Anne resin model.
This tutorial will focus on pictures, so you might like to read Doll Painting 1 for more painting tips and Hitty Bee’s Paints and Supplies to learn exactly what paints, tools, and supplies I use.
1: Blue: Begin by painting Hitty’s Iris. This Hitty will not have sclera, or whites of the eyes. This will give her a more old-fashioned look.
2: Black: Paint Hitty’s Pupils. Remember to paint them so they touch the top of the iris.
3: Pink: Add lip color made from diluted pink or peach. Thin the same color further to blush the cheeks.
4: Brown: Use a very thin brown to shade the lip line and below the bottom lip. Use the same brown, a little darker for eyelines and eyebrows, and perhaps the corners of the mouth. This Hitty does not have an eyelid line. You could stop now, for a simple, traditional, and elegant look.
5: Black and a little White: I used black to add definition to Hitty’s eyebrows, and to make a dark ring around her iris. Then I added a couple of glints in her eyes.
6: Black: I painted around the hairline, then filled in the back. Last, I added forehead curls and varnished.
What sorts of adventures does the future hold for Hitty?
