Update 5/12: I sanded the scratches from Tira's cheek today. All looks good, like it never happened almost, ha. All I have to do now is wait
for my MSC to come in (around the 20th), so I can re-blush her. Errg, can't wait to get her back to normal!
I've read some horror stories about people's dolls taking tumbles during photoshoots and losing a finger or a nose, or chipping face ups, ect.
I never thought that would happen to any of my dolls, until today.
Basically Tira decided she wanted to get her pilot's licence, but failed.
No, what really happened was a strong gust of wind came (a mild wind had been blowing most of the day) and knocked the backdrop down on top of Tira,
who was in a pose that required careful balance (of course) and sent her hurling over the edge of the table she was on, down to the concrete below...
She hit with such a force it knocked her eyes out and scratched the resin on her left cheek. I don't even know what to think...
I had to remove the blush from that side because a grain of dirt/sand was lodged in one of the scratches :C Oh my gosh really?!
Currently I have to figure out what to do about the scratches. I'm sure if I left them and re-blushed her cheek they would show through. I have no MSC so
I'm most upset that I have to wait to attempt to do a partial face up fix. If I don't clean the area properly old edges will show and collect new pastel causing it to look like she has cracks.
It would just look dis-connected from the rest of her face up if I do it wrong. I absolutely am not re-doing her whole face up! I would have liked to fix it today and move on,
but now Tira has to sit with no blush on one cheek..UGH! First I need to find out what kind of sandpaper or file to use to get those scratches smoothed...
I have plenty of photos of her so this won't interfere with the kiriban.
