Tony suggested using Silk 'n Colors in satin stitch for the lips. Again I questioned his choice of color, but decided to give it a try before finding an alternate fiber. Silly me....should have known he would be right (AGAIN). By chopping up the overdye in sections of light to dark I managed to get the correct shading.
Next came the dreaded Marlitt for the teeth. I added pale grey to the two outer teeth to give them a little depth, and then went to work with a wet sponge and the white. Using this fiber isn't the easiest, but it really does the job in the shine department.
Wish I could say that these stitches are "bringing the canvas to life". but...........
