Perfect Drying Weather!

Woke up this morning and it was so blazing hot outside that I decided to stain some muslin and some dolls I am working on. They were all dry within 15 minutes in the hot sun! you can't beat that! Sometimes when I dry items in the oven it takes a little bit more than 15 minutes!
I now have naked dolls sitting on my dining room table waiting to get dressed. I will post pictures of them when I get them done!
I have a question for all of you, hopefully I will get some feedback. When You make a Mammy what shade of paint to you like? I just painted a Mammy using dk. brown and I am loving the color. Leave me a comment on what shade you like your dolls painted with.
Well have a nice day and I will be back with pictures of some of my projects I am working on.


  1. Hi Marie :)
    Sounds like you've been busy!
    I think a dark brown Mammy would look great. After all, skin color varies from black to light coffee and cream colored.

    How about that storm last night? We lost power til about 2 am.

  2. Dark brown works great. I also use Umber. It makes a really cute Mammy doll. Can't wait to see the finished doll. Hugs, Valerie
