Can I Paint A Layer of Skin Tone Paint After Creases Without Baking

I painted creases yesterday and don’t feel like baking today. The tutorial calls for baking. I also did the blushing.

Will a layer of skin tone paint (GHSP) remove the blush? I don’t feel like seeing Amelia’s face changing shape again as well. I think her head vynil was too soft from the beginning. I do stuff the head and boy plate when I bake them.

I would bake before putting skin layer

What temp are you baking at? Do you sit the head upright?


265 degrees for exactly 8 minutes. I can’t put it upright as I only have one extender ring. I struggled to find it as it is not sold in South Africa.
I change her sides halfway through the baking.
I can either put her facing up, down or her sights. That way the lid is far from the vynil.

Do you wait for your oven to reach 265 before you start to time the baking? If you do that, you don’t need too. Put your parts into a cold oven, and cook it for 8 minutes as long as your temp is reaching 265 it will be ok. It only needs to be at the 265 temp for a couple of minutes. Maybe if your parts are at 265 for the full 8 minutes, it’s too much making your vinyl way too soft.


@lynn, no I put them straight from while it’s cold and I always wait in between for the parts to cool a bit before I take them out.
I take out the head quicker though to avoid it misshaping.

But I’m sad now yesterday the left cheek developed a scar-like dents. My husband says it looks like my doll was in a knife fight🙈. I think it was the cloth creases I line the stove with. I’ve never had any issues with the cloth but I think since I washed it for the first time it hardened a little bit.
