Devistated! "Split" in vinyl……


#1

I messed up big time, I tried to fix/reroot my babies eyebrows too many times. I wasn’t thinking & now she has so many needle holes so close together that it’s created a “split”, I’ve sanded down everything & put her away for now. It’s on the brow bone & im wondering if it’s even salvageable? I’m wondering if I could somehow fill in the holes then build it up & sand it smooth then re paint, I looked inside the head with a light & it doesn’t seem to go through to the other side. I tried taking a upclose photo but it wouldn’t focus so I tried to recreate it on paper, someone please tell me I didn’t ruin my beautiful girl if it is fixable I would definitely paint them on so I wouldn’t mess up this bad again or damage the repair.

@izzy may know if you can use Sculpey or something similar to repair the vinyl. Then, you can paint over it to match the skin tone and paint the brows.


#3

Maybe try using liquid sculpey and dabbing/pouncing over the split if it’s not all the way through the vinyl. If it’s cut straight through the vinyl use sculpey mold maker to patch it up.

oh thats a shame she was looking so pretty but someone took bags under the eyes away with sculpty so i bet you can fix her with that .GOOD LUCK!

I was having a ton of problems with getting the ruby red mohair to work so I’m thinking maybe buy a better quality before I attempt rooting her head


#6

Yea the Ruby Red mohair kinda sucks. Hope you get her fixed.


#7

Use the stuff that @izzy used to make the baby eyelids.


#8

What’s considered good quality, & where can I find some?


#9

Ruby is the worst.

Most of our members DO NO ROOT EYEBROWS, maybe you should try Prisma pencil eyebrows or paint. I have seen some well done rooted eyebrows but they are few and far between. I wouldn’t advise it for a beginner. Eyebrows are hard for everyone, they take a lot of practice. I think you would be happier with the pencil or paint though.

So true! :slight_smile:


#13

I think I’ll try a prisma pencil, I read on a tutorial to take a cheap liner brush and cut all but 4-5 hairs in order to paint fine details such as capillaries & brows. I tried it on the capillaries and it wasn’t easy, it might have helped if I pigmented the paint more or used bb thinning medium instead of the liquid thinner.


#14

Is the liquid sculpey able to be baked? All I have is ghsp so I would need to bake after repainting her skin color & painting her eyebrows!


#15

Oh, yes I use prisma pencil for eyebrows because I’m not good with painting eyebrows.
