I’ve mentioned before my “skintones make shoes a pain” thing, and so I wanted to give this Marisole a skintone that was shared by another doll so that she could share shoes. I chose Candy Coated Couture, but I don’t think the skintones are actually the same. In fact, a quick check with photoshop’s eyedrop tool tells me they aren’t. This has something to do, I think, with how Photoshop saves things for the web.

So, I did a little internet research and found a lovely article

I am going to try a few other methods and see if they help. It’s a strange problem indeed.

Since it’s Christmas Eve, I wanted to wish a everyone a lovely Christmas. Be safe and be merry. I am back in Alaska with my family celebrating.

      Personally, I don’t think her dark skin tone makes her any less beautiful and I’m a little befuddled why it is worthy of a frowning face. Fruity Autumn is available in black and white, so you can make her skin color any tone you would like, but I won’t be giving up on creating paper dolls with dark skin (or any other colored skin, for that matter). I believe that it is important people of all colors to be represented in paper doll format and to the best of my ability (granting that it is not always entirely successful), I strive to do that.
