Does anyone know what kind of paint I can use on a vinyl craft doll? I want to transform a vinyl craft doll into Elphaba(The wicked witch of the west). So I have to paint the whole body and face a light shade of green. My daughter loves Wicked the musical and I want to make it for her for christmas. Any ideas and links would be soooo helpful. Thanks

Acrylic paint will work, but it can be hard to keep it smooth and even. 

I know I have seen tutorials for dyeing My Little Ponies with RIT dye, so that might work. 

Good luck.  (I know i saw a wicked witch of the west barbie for sale, so if you are having trouble getting the skin right this might be an option, and then you would craft other things to go with it).

Thanks. I'll try doing a search on dyeing. I saw the Barbie but it's about $70. A little too much for me.

Good luck.  I think toys R us has one for a lot cheaper... but I'm not sure.

I hope it turns out well.
