One of these days I am going to find a well loved AG in need of rescue and do some customizing! I know quite a few of you have done custom face ups on your dolls and are very good at it, too. Vivienne shares a simple way to add freckles to any doll – and the best part is that the freckles are do not have to be permanent.

Hi! My name is Vivienne and today I’m going to show you how to freckle your dolls. Before you do this project, PLEASE ask your parent/guardian for their permission.

Doll customization - how to add freckles

Start by gathering your supplies. I used a dry paper towel, a paper towel with just a little water on it (for mistakes), a soaking wet paper towel, a Super Tips Washable Crayola marker, and my Just Like You doll #27, Cassidy.

Start be deciding where you want to start. I have started on her left cheek. Wet that area with the soaking paper towel. **Be sure not to get any water in her eyes though!

Now with the marker make small dots. They don’t have to be perfect.

With the dry towel, dot excess marker and water off. Continue on the nose and other cheek.

To wash off the freckles, just rub off with a wet paper towel. Your doll now has freckles! 

I freckled all of my dolls, for fun, and washed them off but I snapped some pictures before taking them off.

I hope you enjoyed learning how to freckle your dolls.

Will you do this? If so, which doll would you do? If not, which doll do you think would look good with freckles?
