Kerstin Foppe shared this wonderful photo on social media and I thought it was a fantastic way to highlight just how much work goes into bringing blank kits to life.
The difference between the two kits is pretty noticeable.
The skintones are really realistic, and has been maintained by many layers of paint.
Even artists themselves can be surprised by just how lifelke the babies appear.
Anyone who has never painted a doll may not be aware of just how many days and sometimes months are put into the process.
Each kit can prove a challenge in itself.
But the outcome can be so drastic that it is hard to imagine the blank kit as it was.
So let’s make sure we give our artists the respect, appreciation and time that they need to bring our babies to life.
