GHSP being discontinued?!

Just putting this here for informational purposes. I know nothing about this. Just came across it on FB.

Wow, that is sad. So disappointing that people keep supporting what is wrong.

It seems ironic that they are selling paints for the reborn community and they are helping wreck it at the same time by supporting fakes.

I might be really behind the times here, but I just now saw that MacPhersons has a line of FantasyFX heat set paints in many colors. Looks like they are geared toward alternative/fantasy kits but some of the colors maybe could work for regular babies. Or are these just Genesis mixed in fantasy colors?

Also, came across this heat set paint. I wonder if it would work on vinyl. Anyone heard of it?

My computer blew up over the summer, but when I first heard of Kebelka I went looking for a paint made in Europe that was heat set as I suspected this was repackaged paints that were made by some company. I found what I thought was probably the company in Spain, but I can no longer access my old computer where I saved the info. Maybe if Bobbi or someone can find that they can just by-pass this person and carry the paint. This person may be mixing up colors more suitable to what we want for our dolls, but Bobbi can do that.

There are several heat set fabric paint/dies (which is what this is) on the market in the U.S. I used to have a bunch of it, but got rid of it awhile back. If I still had it I would play around with it. However, my hunch is that the vinyl will start absorbing before you try to heat it and it will not wipe off like Genesis.

I am disappointed to say the least. As I said on the other thread, I have spent $40 a jar ($20 jar price + $20 shipping from Spain) X 3 mediums to get this stuff. I am not tossing it out. I had no idea when I bought it and I like it so I am using up what I got. Then I will go from there. I also have a jar of the new Genesis Matte varnish, Satin varnish, Thinning medium and Glaze Medium. Hopefully I will have enough products to get me by until someone comes along with a new alternative. There are many heat set fabric dyes, inks, ceramic paints etc. on the market so I am sure it is just a matter of time before someone figures something out. Also if Keka Roger could figure out how to make Kebelka someone else eventually will too. She does not have a patent on it I read that on her page, because some of the ingredients she used in it are already patented.
