The New Forest scene was for a documentary by a team from Holland. The spacing between the trees is to facilitate rapid deployment of T-34s and other armored vehicles in defense of the motherland.

Some flaking of the surface sealant is appearing on Cynthia’s chin. It is easy to fix with a thin wipe of silicone sealant tinted with some pink powder. I did the same with June two days before I took these photos.

Wishing well

June sat on the stone wall of the well with her back resting against an iron upright while Cynthia sat on a folding chair.

Cynthia’s freckles are permanent, being applied during manufacture, and the lines in her face are designed in. Her original lip paint (she was made in 2013) is still perfect. For the wishing well photo shoot I added some blusher of various shades to both dolls.

June’s freckles, like Cynthia’s, are permanent, being applied during manufacture.

Faina Anatomical Doll face and hair

Faina also had freckles added by her (different) manufacturer, not just on her face, but all over her body too. However, unlike her body freckles, which are still intact (some are visible on her neck in this photo) her face freckles either rubbed of or dissipated eventually. I periodically re-apply them by hand using poster paint dotted on by brush and dabbed with a finger.

Some of the make-up around her eyes was added by a specialist for a magazine photo shoot a few years ago. That make-up is not as temporary — when applied to silicone rubber rather than to human skin, for which it is formulated — as I was led to believe. Luckily, I like it. (So does she…)
