Letting the inner glow shine...
The Blue Eemp on the left was poured in a liquid white porcelain, fired in a kiln, and then I painted it with a blue porcelain china paint to give her this magical skin tone. The other Eemp was poured in French Glow liquid porcelain which is a natural light beige tone without changing the color of the porcelain. All I needed to do after the kiln fire was to do the face painting with a blush and lip color with the eyebrows. (Remember - I also have to kiln fire the paint to the porcelain so it can't be rubbed off.)
But ahhhh... a princess is special. She deserves a peaches and cream look to her skin tone. Something with a touch and delicacy of a beautiful rose to it. Which is why I pulled out my specialty color of English Rose for Ffion.
