    These are so beautiful, we are really inspired! My daughter loves them. 🙂 Do you have any tips on making the eyes and polka dots so perfectly round, and the tie and other lines so nice and neat? Is it just lots of experience with a paint brush, or do you have special paintbrushes or other tools for these? Thank you!

  4. Tessie says:

    Great question! To do the eyes and polka dots I use the wrong end of the paintbrush! Just dip the wooden end in a little paint then lightly dot. I always practice a few dots on paper plates first until I am feeling confident 🙂 For the other details just make sure to use a very small, good quality brush. A steady hand helps too 🙂 I found stripes to be the hardest and dots to be the easiest. Good luck!
