Well my brilliant idea for dyeing the face colours didn’t work…there isn’t enough contrast so that when the wool is cut into strips (i’m using a 6 for the face) you can’t see the contours of the nose at at all.
I figured I needed more contrast, and to that end, I re-dyed the spotted grey with more grey all over. That seems to be working, as an outline and shadow definition.
I dip dyed one piece in 1/128 red to get the cheek blush….it was too red so I overdyed that with sand pink, and like that result…although the one end is far too deep to be used).
The other pieces, I overdyed, with the same flesh recipe…I thought, but they turned out WAY too yellow, so now it’s back to square one to try again for a basic flesh colour (with a definite yellowish cast and some gradation ).
I’ll get it right yet Adele….just be patient!
