Testing… plus thrift shop finds!

03/11/2015

I don’t have the proper paints or sealants to be doing face-ups… But I want still want to. I have an entire shelf of dolls I want to repaint. The thing is, in Canada, we don’t allow MSC; I have done a ton of reading about other artists using other sealants, but I have yet to find a dealer for these other brands… I’m assuming I’ll find them at Michaels…

So I have a temporary way to paint my dolls, using acrylic paint, and then a coat of clear glue to make it shine. Here are some before and afters:

Marky’s lips dried a bit blotchy, I think that’s because I didn’t remove her stock lipstick. :/

Plus thrift shop finds! I stopped by my local Goodwill store, twice actually, and found these sweet items:

Bunch of broad lace

Nefera, Venus, and Frankie came in a pack together and Skelita came alone with her shoes and bracelet. They were in OK condition Venus’ hair seemed beyond fixing, but after a wash it was smooth and tangle free. :D

    I use Liquitex Matte Varnish (spray aerosol version) myself and Tamiya clear gloss for lips and eyes to make them glossy. I order both on amazon.com (though you can find the Liquitex everywhere around here)
