I just blushed the hell out of a little fabric doll, body and all.  But then I remembered I'll be making clothes for the little guy!  I don't want the blush to rub off and smear when his clothed are being changed!  Is there a good method to set blush on a doll body to endure occasional handling?  o.o;;;

I suppose he could just stay naked.  Considering the character, it wouldn't be too off base, but...  6.6;  Help~?

I know hairspray work with pencils on paper, perhaps it would work for blush on fabric as well.....

I gave that a try.  It's probably now the most flammable thing in the world, but the blush didn't rub off under my fingers, so mission accomplished?   Grin


ETA - Oh!  Btw, hairspray is a bad choice for archiving drawings on paper because it yellows in a year or two, and eventually causes the paper to crumble.  The cans of acid-free, archival-quality setting sprays for drawings are much more expensive, but they protect the image and paper much longer.  ^_~

I've used blush on my doll once.  I didn't set it or anything and it didn't rub off, even after being dressed and undressed millions of times!   Grin  But then again, this info may not be reliable because I made the doll out of swimsuit lining!  It was a while ago and I chose the fabric because it was really stretchy.  I never saw it was swimsuit lining until after I bought it.    Lips sealed
