Hi! I’m new to reborning and I’m currently picking up some supplies to get started. I wanted to know if I need to lower the temperature when baking the kits and up the time from eight minutes. Gamsol has a flashpoint of 145 degrees fahrenheit, with that said, is the normal 260 - 265 baking temp. too high? Also, does Gamsol work well with all skin tones/details or just ethnic flesh tones? Thanks.
If you lower the temperature the paint won’t cure, but Gamsol works great being baked at the temperatures needed for reborning. I only use Gamsol now, it works very well for all skin tones and it’s safer to use than thinner.
Gamsol is just another brand of mineral spirits, supposedly it is less harmful. When the paint dries all the mineral spirits have evaporated, and is safe to bake.
I only use the Gamblin Gamsol on all skin types. I have not lowered the temp at all and have not had any problems. I much prefer the Gamsol to any other brand for painting with. Especially for ethnic babies.
