I’m Iza of Iza’s Face Ups and I’ve been a face up artist for 6 years. I’ve worked on many sculpts in all sizes and themes! This face up tutorial covers my method of working and is not the only method. This is just meant as a starting point to discovering your own style and way of working!

Before we begin, I wanted to cover the materials I use for painting dolls in no particular order:

  • Chalk pastels (Schminke, Daler Rowney, Winsor & Newton, and Rembrandt)
  • Shimmer powders (Jacquard Pearl Ex Pigments)
  • Watercolor tube paints (Koi)
  • Synthetic soft bristle brushes (Various brands including make up brushes, sizes range from 30/0 to 12)
  • Kneaded eraser
  • Cotton balls
  • Cotton swabs
  • Spray sealant (Mr. Super Clear UV-Cut Flat or Citadel Purity Seal)
  • Acrylic gloss (Liquitex Gloss Medium or Model Color Varnish)
  • Eyelashes
  • White glue (PVA or Elmers, just needs to be water soluble)
  • Cotton glove
  • Respirator (Needs to be have at least an N95 vapor filter on it!)

Now let’s begin!
