I have a repair/enhance question and @anjsmiles - maybe you can help me with this. I had a lady send me a picture of Loulou because when she received her she felt she was too pale, had no undertones and lacked lip detail. Essentially, she looks more “doll-like” than “baby-like.” She has asked me “fix” her by sprucing up her colors. She said that the artist won’t touch her because she thinks she is painted perfectly; and has a no return policy. She was painted with RebornFX and sealed with RebornFX sealers but is very shiny. My question is, do I have to lightly sand off the sealer to paint over it (if I agree to take on this fix?) or can I paint directly over the sealer? This person is looking for a little more mottling (maybe) but mostly some cheek color, eyelid color and a darker, more defined, lip color. I have tons of RebornFX paints; so that isn’t a problem. I wish I could strip her and start over but the doll is rooted and the person wants to keep costs down.
Here is a picture of her but don’t want to offend the artist (if you’re on here) because she is nicely painted - just not enough detail work for the buyer. But maybe they can warn me if this woman is hard to work with.
If anyone has done RebornFX repairs/enhancements without stripping completely can you give me your advice? Thanks!
