Shortly after I created my Sesame Street Nesting Dolls, I had ideas of making other versions. One that came into mind right away were Disney characters! So I ordered another set of blank wooden nesting dolls from Amazon and finally got work on them :o)
First, print out pictures of the characters faces (I just googled until I found images I liked). Tape them onto the blank nesting dolls and with a ball point pen, trace the faces. For the smaller dolls, I found that using the tip of screw/nail was easier to trace with than the ball point pen.
When you take off the paper, you will see that you have created an indent of the face on the wood doll. You now have nice grooves and lines to paint over.
When the acrylic is completely dry, I used a Triple Thick Brilliant Brush-On Glass Glaze to seal it and make it shiny. You only need one coat of this gloss and it doesn’t leave a sticky residue.
