How To Paint A Tiny Wooden Doll

If you have ever wanted to make your own wooden Doll.
I will show you how I make them.
I did not put any brand names because
you may not find them in your area.
I have put info that can help you ask your favorite Craft/ art shop.
The wood piece can be found in a craft/ art shop or on line.
(this will be a Tooth Fairy)
Step#1: Lightly use a fine grade sand paper on entire wood doll .

Step#2 : Sketch your own design onto the doll with a pencil.

Step#3: Paint the overall design of the doll.
Paints ca be :
Color-Pencils, watercolors, acrylics or other paints.
Remember that different paints will react different to wood.

Step#4: Continue painting the details of your doll's design.

Step#5: At this point draw the fine details of the doll.
Using Inkpens, color-pencils to define the lines of the overall design of the doll.
This is also the step to add glitter, stickers, cutouts or whatever you want,
That is if you want to do so.

Step#6: Add a fine Crackle Finish to the entire doll , avoiding the face.

Ask your local art/craft shop for Crackle Finish.

Step#7: After the crackle finish has dryed Stain the entire wood doll
whit a brown stain.
Ask your local shop for stains , It doesn't have to be a wood stain.

Step#8: Finally after the stain has dryed
add a Non-Toxic Non-Yellowing Varnish to the doll.
Add as many layers as you want of Varnish.

Now enjoy your tiny wooden doll.

If you have questions please ask.
