Feeling inspired, I've created a handful of new polymer faces and have painted some already..... and I'm getting ready to list them in my Etsy shop.
I usually don't have color schemes picked out for the faces while I'm forming them, I just decide on that right before I paint them.
Sometimes I'll start painting and it doesn't look right so I wash it off and start over. On rare occasions, I may do this 3-4 times on one face. On super-rare occasions, I may throw a face away completely.... which hasn't happened in a while!
