Designer's Tip: When adding blush to the dolls cheeks color your acrylic block with the shade of blush you want. Than take your lightest skin color pen and pick up the blush color from the block. Starting from the center of the cheek color in a circular motion until all the blush color you picked up is gone from the pen tip.
