You buy the kits I used to buy mine from eBay .. you use genisis heat paint again from eBay , special brushes to do certain things .. you build up the base colours or the skin tones normally about 6 layers before you do the mottling and fine detail .. remembering this as to look like a new born so you have a few bluish areas round mouth nose etc then you bake after each coat of paint to seal the paint after that is done you root or paint the hair . I prefer to root it’s mohair and you micro root one hair at a time .. then you fill the limbs with crystal sand it’s a special sand ! You use fibre fill in the body and polly pellets to weigh same with the head it’s a long process but so rewarding as you watch the unpainted head limbs begin to resemble a real baby phewww I know I’ve missed stuff bu thst is basically how it’s done the kits are on eBay if your going to give it a go buy a cheap kit , defo use genisis heat paint and NOT THE AIR DRY ONES .. xxxOh my god! I'm intrigued! How are these made? Tell me everything! This got my mind spinning in all sorts of ways...
Thanx! I'm not that happy, I could have done it better. That's how it works for me, I have a hard time to stop and after I see all the flaws...it's a mini painting, only 15x15 cm and I made it with acrylics. I feel it's harder than oil painting, but it dries fast!
I know how that is. I am never 100% satisfied by my work. Instead, I can pick out the flaws but also the great things I did well on.Thanx! I'm not that happy, I could have done it better.
