Was Liam and the wedges yours?


#1073

Yes and I don’t have bugs so I’m glad that was safe. The kit is very pretty. Those wedges I split the bag in half. They expand once you start using them they aren’t the hard ones.

I had Liam on my list. I’m happy you put him inside the box! He’s going to be a light skinned biracial or AA baby. He will be a she with fair skin and coral pink blushing with brownish red creasing and color around her ears and knuckles. Like how babies darken after a week or two. There’s a pretty little girl modeling clothes on a baby boutique site with rust colored hair. I think Liam needs red hair. My youngest had red hair so I’m partial hehe.

I’m having a hard time with the wedges. They pick up everything in the air. What helps? I’m doing air dry.


#1075

I use heat set. They are more spongy than I like. Haven’t had them pick up anything extra. So far I’ve only used them for two babies and no problems other than the throng a little too soft but then I just the harder one to take extra paint off so I use two different sponges. Hope this makes sense


#1076

Can you share photos of the girl your modeling after? I’m working on an AA with pink tones but will need to do creasing in a reddish color


#1077

The air dry paint picks up everything. You can hermetically seal yourself in and it will pick up lint. It’s a magnet for lint lol. I’m switching to genesis soon. I can’t with this lint but I love not having to bake and I worry about the fumes.

I’m also looking at a video on YouTube from all4reborns. It’s so addictive to watch. She paints a baby the way I’m trying to.

She speed painted an Ira the elf. He looks amazing. Some purists won’t like this video, but she does a good job. Also I want her sponge!

Thanks for sharing that link, I love her painting style!


#1082

Me too! She paints really good. I like that she can take any kit and make it something so different and gorgeous. I’m going to join her patreon and Melissa George’s.


#1083

Oh those sea sponges I wonder which brand she is using


#1084

I bought a bag at Michael’s many years ago. There are so many different textures to them. I have one that is my go-to. It isn’t in the best shape, anymore. I hope I can find another like it when it falls apart.


#1086

I think the big one is what she uses? Maybe the one from bountiful baby? How does she mix her paint?


#1087

Now that I’m not sure of


#1088

Hers looks thicker than mine. I was worried the first time I watched her videos. I thought she’d have streaking or lint.


#1089

I’ve used air dry for years and have never had a problem with lint. Could your sponges be picking it up?


#1090

They are. I’m working on Spencer and not only is the poor baby getting a few booboos but he’s covered in lint. I’ve spent hours plucking and scrubbing and it keeps coming. I’m going to genesis!


#1091

Any updates on the :package:? Did she receive it? Its rather disappointing that it was damage with ya know
