On custom face-ups you decide the color palette, eyebrow shape, freckles and/or beauty marks… Tattoos and fantasy designs are not included. If you are interested in complex/fantasy face-ups, you can contact us to find out about options and prices.
In normal conditions* it will take about 7 days, not counting transit times, to complete a custom faceup.
* I live in a low-humidity area in Spain, which is great for face-ups. If it rains, it will take a little longer. Also, I have a full-time job that keeps me a little busy from time to time, although it won’t affect default/basic face-ups deadlines.
*Note: I will not copy other artists faceups under any circumstance. Pictures are just examples of face-ups, colors, expressions… that you like. I have my own style, so if you are looking for a very specific style, it would better that you contact an artist that better fits what you have in mind 😉
Cristina García (Solsikke) is our local Spanish faceup artist, based in Guadalajara, 50km outside Madrid. When not painting dolls, she works as an Arts & Crafts teacher at a high school.
“As far back as I can remember dolls have been a passion for me, but my whole world changed one day eight years ago, when BJDs crossed my path. I was fascinated, and dived into this wonderful hobby.
My very first BJD had a default factory face-paint, as I didn’t yet feel confident enough to give my first doll a face-up. But I had an urge and eventually got bitten by the face-up bug.
Soon after, dolls like Blythe, Monster High, Licca also came into my life… and I joined the fascinating world of carving, repainting and re-rooting (a million thanks to all the people who entrusted me to work on their dolls).
Please, be sure that I work with enthusiasm and care deeply about my face-ups, and I’ll do my best to fulfil your expectations. Thank you so much!!”
