I have a question about painting dolls, specifically the plain ones you find at dollar stores, you know, the generic Barbies.

I have a special type of project that i want to do with one but id have to paint the whole body, and i wanted to know if theirs any special type of paint for this, or if a glaze or something has to go over it afterwards?

i dont want it to feel dry and dusty after its dried and i definitely dont want any cracks to start appearing.

Can anyone help me? Sad

I'd just use acrylics and paint or spray a good coat or two of polyeurathane.
