Thank you to everyone who's been following along as I brought Kaylee to life! Kaylee is the name of the sculpt by Linda K. Smith. Secrist Dolls produced a limited edition of Kaylee doll kits...only 295! I have completed my doll and have now renamed her Lilly.
Love her sweet blond hair? I wanted Lilly to resemble a toddler, so rather than rooting her hair, I selected a premium mohair wig (Kemper - Cassidy) from HunnyBuns Reborn Supply. (not an affiliate link)
If you look closely, you'll notice I added a few finishing touches to Lilly. Her freckles were applied with a 00 round brush and a mix of Genesis Yellow Ochre and Burnt Umber. Her lips were given a wet appearance by applying Aleene's Paper Glaze (sometimes called Secrist Baby Tears) to her mouth and tongue. (Never bake Baby Tears.) I also applied her eyelashes with Aleene's Clear Tacky Glue.
Let me know in the comments what you think of Lilly! I hope you enjoyed seeing her come to life.
Bring Lilly home!
