This is fantastic Im starting to get into collecting dolls and doing repaints recently Question though, if I just wanted to onlyrepaint parts of the face (i.e not removing the original, just enhanching) could I do that? And seal that specific part with a varnish or certain sealer? Thanks!
These kits come with their own wigs, but you can buy wigs online (measure the circumfrence of your doll's head in inches and you'll find many in that size) or you can reroot them (there are many rerooting tutorials available online)
Great tutorial! Just tried my first faceup today (without any sealant tho as I will be getting mr Super Clear on Tuesday! D ) and I'm just wondering what distance you should keep from the doll while spraying? I know that you wrote that there should be about a 30 cm distance when there's glitter on the face, but when you're just spraying for a base and in between? :3
this is my first repaint attempt! the before and after shot [link] I wanted her eyes to look slightly more natural, I should have went against the original shape of the mold. Also, I painted her with binder, added the pastel to it when wet ( which I probably shouldnt have done in hindsight) and used a fixative on her when I was done.
I really love how you paint eyes T.T So expressive, hard to achieve. I couldn't find Mr Sealant, and even with the binder on it was hard to get the pastels to stick, tried mixing the pastels with the binder but it looked shiney and it peeled off o.o after getting the base color on it was slightly easier to get the other colors to stick, provided I mixed water with the powdered watercolor pencils.
I'm going to have to try experimenting more, thank you again for uploading your tutorial, it gave me confidence to try this even though I ended up deviating in some ways.
