ok so i have this awesome idea, but making it happen is tough. im trying to pain on the bratz styling head and some other barbie tpe dolls. they dont have they smooth plastic skin, its kind of that rough plastic, like the face is made from. any ideas on the paint i should use>? ive tried a few things, paint, and paint markers. it seems like it looks very streaky. a chalky look is ok because ill clear coat it in the end.
  have any of you paint on these before? any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!

try some of the face painting links on the bottom of this page,
even though they are for dollfies they should give you ideas for type of paint.

i've used both craft acryics ad artist's acrylics with luck...also check out gaming stores and the paints they use for the warhammer and other types of figures...i used the paint i used to paint my ex's warhammer figures on a few barbies.
