I noticed some people have beautiful African/African American Blythe dolls. FunnyBunny on Ravelry has a website, http://www.funnybunny.se/, and she has a little description about her doll Chocolate Pudding. I am awaiting on a reply to clear up some of my questions, but she created Chocolate Pudding by spay paint and a vintage doll's body. I really want to try this.
I want to try it with a Bratz doll body and a clone Blythe. I will have to purchase a wig or two. First I need to find out about paint and body. No point in moving forward until then. I have nearly too many projects but this one would be a lot of fun. I could practice dismantling and customization without the fear of ruining a real Blythe. While she is cracked open, I want to try the eyelid painting, too.
I hope R's gets here pronto. She was shipped yesterday.
