I got to painting my custom dolls when I realized I didn't have all the colors I needed. Apparently I thought I could paint the brows and lashes with flesh colors too! So after playing around with some blush and lip color, I set the heads aside and I ordered some more paints in the right colors.

Dye results: I had to mix three dyes to get the right shade of cloth to match two colors of vinyl. It's a crazy guessing game!
But I got better as I went along. I did the lighter color first--not too bad. But I got a bit closer to the vinyl color on the second. In fact I'd say it's a nearly perfect match! They look great, pretty close, and I learned a bit about dying cloth. Read more about Cloth Body Progress - Dying to Match

So yeah! I'm pretty happy with my progress on the custom cloth body I've been working on. I have the arms and legs attached now and even inserted the armature to fully test it out.
Some will probably find my headless dancing doll disturbing; all apologies. ;) But it's necessary. Before the head goes on, I have to be sure the rest of the body works as it should--and looks good too, which I think it does. Read more about Coming to Life

They say that with a bit of time and dedication you can craft yourself a perfect body. And so it goes for dolls too!
I say this as I'm closing out a very long day of working and reworking my custom doll cloth body pattern. I've been at it for days in fact, but I think I finally got some pattern pieces that will work. Read more about Crafting a Perfect Body
