Hi There,
This is my first post so I'm hoping I've put it in the right place?
I have ordered myself the componant parts to make the doll of my dreams lol but I am kinda unsure as to what products I can use on the doll - I was advised to use Genisis Heat Setting Paint but I have found out that these are oil based paints and as I have read somewhere the acrylic? the dolls are made of would be damaged by this type of paint??
My plan was just to use plain old acrylics I have no shortage of these but I am unsure if this would be ok?
Also what kind of sealer should I use? I live in the U.K and have found it impossible to find anywhere that sells Mr.Super something...If anyone has any suggestons I would be most grateful...
 Also My plan is to paint her to look ethereal as oppossed to realistically human...does this have a bearing on the types of paint I should use?
Many Thanks, Herbs  Grin
Here's the pic's of the ordered parts...In case that helps!

okay  so a bit late with a reply on this one...

  regular acrylics are okay,  but do use a sealer on the face first,  OR IT WILL STAIN!

  look for a dullcote made by testors,  it works good.  can use a clear nailpolish remover to remove it.  or rubbing alchol if you mess up and need to remove everything.

 also,  i would recommend more with using chalks to make the obitsu to look how you want them.  takes WAY more time, but worth it in the end!

  http://www.denofangels.com/forums/ would be the best place to ask about faceups and such for any kind of BJD.  Smiley 

it's the Quiet ones you have to watch out for.  They truly know what is going on.
