The answer to your question is "Yes." Yes I did put people-lipstick on Yren's lips in the first picture. Only partially succesfully, since I didn't have many colors to choose from and the painted porcelain resists it fairly well. Plus it smudges when you bump it. But I think it has potential. Also maybe washable watercolors would work, and one could mix them easily.
Since a new camera is not coming my way so soon after vacation, my husband kindly took the old one in hand and figured out for me how to make the macro work. Seems it's not just a matter of pushing the flower icon, you have to turn a knob to a "Scene" setting too.
Alrighty then. The kind people who read this blog will get to witness my development as a photographer, assuming that I do, eventually, have some development as a photographer. If not I'm just going to keep blaming the camera.
Here are some almost okay shots of my pretty Enchanted Doll, still naked. Several times today I started to drape a lace dress on her but reverted to just playing with her every time.
But it might turn out to be an interesting dress, when I finally quit playing and make it. Kind of a Poiret-inspired number--and actually one I am designing myself!
Which is really fun!
It might not work!
If it doesn't work, I'll go back to playing!
And smudging lipstick!
