Hitty's Face is Painted, sort of................

I'm not done with the face. She has that "deer in the headlights" look that I need to deal with. I "bit the bullet" and ordered a Starting Out carving kit from Little Shavers, that will have a Kevlar glove that fits my (small) hand, and tools that will also fit my hand.
This Hitty was carved with a jack knife, probably not the most precise carving, tool, but it was all I had. I used my Dremel a bit for sanding, but whoa!!! You have to be careful with that thing or it will just take a Hitty's nose right off, if you're not careful.
Am I satisfied with this Hitty? No, I'm not. But she will always be my number one carved Hitty, and will serve as a testimony to where I began. Hopefully, we'll all be able to see my progress as I carve future Hittys. But first, this one needs arms and legs.


  1. And she'll look better when she's finished and dressed, too. We all look better with nice clothes on.

  2. I changed the face of this doll when my new carving tools arrived. If you search for Hitty Anna on this blog, you will see her newer, better face.
