Playing With Lighting When Photographing Dolls

This link will take you to an article by a doll maker who teaches costuming of miniature dolls. Her idea is not how to light a doll perfectly, like when you are presenting a doll for sale, but to light it to bring that "magic spark of life" to your doll in all it's photographs.

Heat Set Paint Demonstration


Thanks to this doll maker who shows us how she creates depth on this small scale polymer clay head. Using this technique will bring your little faces to life. This link is to a photo tutorial using a similar technique: http://www.fairiesndreams.com/painting-tutorial/

NOTE: Notice that she is using liquid polymer clay as her thinning medium instead of Genesis thinning medium.
