I thought I'd give a quick little tutorial on how to draw on your doll face with fabric markers. You can also use this technique to paint your face on using fabric paints.
To start, you need your finished doll (or you can do this before you sew it all together, I prefer to work on the face when she's finished and stuffed), a pencil or fabric chalk, fabric markers (be sure to get the fine tip markers - it makes detailed lines so much easier) and a scrap piece of paper. Note: Please read the manufacturers directions on any paint or fabric markers you choose to use. Most fabric products are permanent and washable. Just double check. ;)
Now it's time for the fun part. :) We get to color in the mouth and the eyes. The mouth is pretty simple, I colored in darker on the outside line of the mouth and lighter where I wanted the highlights. I went over my black lines with the pink to soften it a little and give it a richer finished look.
The eyes are a little more tricky, but no worries, you'll be fine! There are two different ways you can accomplish finishing your eyes. The first would be to just pick your eye color and color it straight in. This isn't a bad option, in fact I love doing this on occasion. The other way would be to pick a second color for a tiny accent and place that in your eye first.
Et Voila! You have a beautiful face for your handmade doll. And the best part is, it's completely child proof! Hooray! So you can give this stuffy to a young child and you don't have to worry about their pulling little pieces off and choking on them.
Here is a picture of the completed face with the two toned eyes:
And here is a face with the one toned eye:
I hope this helped! :D
