Stripping strippers


#1

So I’m painting my first toddler Gabriella. Once I get to a certain point in painting I realize I just don’t like the way she looks. I already stripped her once now I’m thinking about doing it again.

here’s one i made last week as a custom


#3

She’s cute I’m afraid I’ll have to strip mines and start over


#4

She’s looking good. What skin tone are you going for?


#5

third time’s the charm :slight_smile:


#6

Light African American. She looks good then when I bake the color changes omg


#7

True


#8

I wouldn’t strip. Her skin tone looks right on track for light African American. I would just going with what you have. :heart:


#9

I’m going to leave her alone for a couple of days and go back to look


#10

I think she looks ok too. Probably a wash of some type will get the color you want.


#11

Your right I’m going to take more photos today during the day time


#12

So after stripping I noticed the vinyl is tearing the toes are separating and there’s a tiny yet large rip in the creases of the leg. This is really horrible


#13

Oh no!! :weary: What did you strip with??


#14

Windsor newton brush cleaner and acetone


#15

Just thinking maybe something weakened the vinyl in the cracks somehow :thinking:


#16

I don’t know. But I’m all most ready to throw in the towel. I can’t seem to get things right just feel defeated


#17

I’ve never used acetone to strip. But I’ve heard it’s a big no no. Could this be why?


#18

I’m learning that. Next time we’ll hopefuly there isn’t a next time but next time I’ll stick to what I been using


#19

I learn sooo many things the hard way. And my lessons are usually learned on expensive kits. :grimacing:


#20

I’m leaning towards the acetone too… But I haven’t used it either.
