How to fix a dol face

How to fix or re-work paperclay doll face / heads:

Before and After picture: Nose bridge softened; cheeks and forehead added to take the bulgy look of the eyes; lips sanded down to a more realistic proportion.
I made this head probably 2 years ago, and left them on the side because I just knew I was doing something terrible, I just didn't know how to fix it. Forward 40+ months and I have learned enough things to see where the mistakes are and how to change it.

This heads will not have the "baby" look I was aiming for at that time. I guess adding enough clay they could look like that, but I want them more for a fantasy looking doll now.

So... Never give up! and Happy Winter solstice! :oD
