Again I removed all her make-up and started from a clean slate. I painted all her face.
Then I designed her bridal dress, jewelry, veil and flower bouquet.
It was a lot of fun to create and I hope you enjoy her.





Have a fabulous evening Grin

You've got a great steady hand on that small scale.  Her face looks lovely.  The outfit is wonderful too.  Is it a present for someone?

Its amazing that you can paint eyes in the same style as vintage barbie eyes

I was just wondering how do you remove make up?
I'd like to repaint the face of an uuuugly Hilary Duff doll that I bought for her outfit  Smiley
I have acrylic paints + acrylic bonder for plastic

In order to remove the face make-up you use an acetone based nail polish remover with many, many Qtips.  You can't rub too much, but as soon as the Qtip is dirty it will smudge the face if you are not careful to constantly use a clean qtip, if the make up becomes smudged around the face you will never get it off without sanding!
To repaint I use water based acrylic paints and very small brushes.

Make sure to use an artist quality acrylic sealer to protect the face against chipping and scratches. The secret to repaints is lots and lots of practice using tiny brushes, I practiced on old barbies before trying it on the more expensive dolls (like the silkstone barbies).
