About a week or two ago I ordered a Realborn Joseph Asleep kit - it’s such a gorgeous sculpt - from Bountiful Baby’s eBay page and as I’m in the UK it arrived really quickly and the kit was in mint condition which I was over the moon with as I’ve ordered a few kits recently from other suppliers and they’ve been damaged or simply unusable
Anyway, I have applied a few neutralizing layers to this kit, they’re simple mixes containing flesh 08, a touch of flesh 03 to warm the vinyl up a little and a reasonable amount of titanium white.
I applied this mix in one layer, let it dry, applied another and then I left the kit to dry overnight.
In the morning, I looked at Joseph’s head and there are these random yellow marks on the head, kind of like the Genesis yellow paint has been rubbed in various areas - the paint mix I formulated didn’t have any additional Genesis yellow in it other than the yellow that I am presuming is mixed into flesh 08 or 03.
I’m confused, I panicked because I thought I had done something wrong but I have no clue as to how any of it appeared - I’ve attached a few pics to show you what it look like, it’s on the head, around one of the eyes, lips and then on the neck and flange part of the vinyl.
Does anyone know what I should do? I have tried stripping the head with thinners and it’s already too stained so I don’t know what else I’m supposed to do other than wait for BB’s response to my message that I sent on eBay.
I can’t purchase a replacement head either because they no longer seem to stock it on the website which is a pain because the limbs are absolutely fine and I don’t want to have to buy another five piece kit if the head is the issue
Any advice would be appreciated
Thank you ladies! - Cate
