BB Reese WIP


#1

I have never done a WIP step by step, so here goes. Vein blue mottling and blue shading.


#2

I bought 2 Reeses! He is co cuteas a boy or a girl! :heart_eyes:

I never do blue mottling, so I should try it too. Thank you for sharing your step-by-step!


#3

Dirty purple mottling and shading.


#4

I have never done a step by step. I wanted to do one just to see how long it actually takes me to do each step in the process. I wish I had done it with some of my other babies. I am glad it you are enjoying it/finding it helpful :blush:


#5

I know that for me it takes over 20. After 20 I just loosing count. I want to try primary method to see if it will get me to the desire skin tone faster.


#6

You should try blue mottling but do it very very light if you do. It tends to make the baby look bad or sick for a few layers until it blends better into the background but the effect is very nice in the end.


#7

Thank you! I am appreciating it too. It’s nice to see the effect different layers have over the other as you go.


#8

You use GHSP right? I have something that might help you, if you want to pm me I can send it to you :slight_smile:


#9

Yes, it’s necessary. Blue, Purple, Maroon, yellow ect


#10

Indigo mottling and creasing.


#11

Thank you. Instead of Ultramarine Blue I start with Vein Blue mottling.


#12

@Peachtree, would you please add pictures of your color concentration. Haw dark is your indigo? I always paint so thing because of the fear of overdoing it. It would be interesting to see your color also. Thanks!


#13

I use ultramarine blue too for washes but I will give the vein blue a try.


#14

Just in case I would like to clarify for you that I was talking about mottling, not washing.


#15

From right to left: vein, dirty purple, indigo. My work station is bordered by two windows and has a Cree daylight LED and a warm white CFL bulb.


#16

I Love your setup and your Faith sign! Would you be able to bake outside so you don’t breathe in those vapors?


#17

I have done 1 doll with the primary method. It does work well, and you can take it as far as you want to get literally any skin tone. I took it farther than I had planned, but the baby still worked out OK. It also takes a LOT of layers. It is my understanding that no matter what you use, one of the keys is very thin layers. If I am wrong, I hope one of the more experienced reborners will help us out! :slight_smile: Personally, I kinda got a little bored by the end. It is just blue, red, yellow (in any order you choose), over, and over, and over again. I may still do it again someday, but for now I am sticking to my WaterBorne paints from Hunnybuns reborn supplies. When I got those paints, it just felt so much easier and better when I put them on the doll. I think we all have our preferences, but since these are pre-mixed for the dolls, it works best for me. I am not an artist and cannot mix my own colors. Didn’t intend to write a book! Sorry…


#18

Yes, the windows do open so that I can have better ventilation/yell at my kids in the back yard :stuck_out_tongue:. If it is windy, though, dust and other little junk gets blown all over my table. It is a convenient place because I can stash all of my baby stuff under the breakfast bar.


#19

OK, so your ‘blue’ was Vein blue, not an Ultramarine blue. I do the same. :slight_smile:


#20

I love your little work station too. It’s similar to my own but my window does not open lol. I have to carry my oven to another room. I also have to walk from room to room to get different lighting because the kit looks different in every room.
