So far, I have tried several genesis babies after running into problems on a luminaire painted baby with paint sticking. And because everyone always raves about genesis. I am so sick of genesis right now that I could scream! Just the problems with blending and the dry look (I don’t care if babies are supposed to be matte, I hate matte!) and the colors not being as pretty. I just finished making two NA babies with genesis and put the first coat on Leah today. Just need to bake them. And I’ve done a biracial baby and two caucasian babies. And I really don’t like the way it looks. I know it would come together eventually but what a hassle! I have all the shades of paints, I have tons of brushes, I have sponges galore…what I don’t have is any interest in doing another all genesis baby. In fact, I think that is why I haven’t done much reborning in the last few months.
Cait, my 14 year old, asked why I didn’t try a baby with both which is what I was thinking about doing with Leah. Make the skin tones with genesis since that seems to work but then do the blushing, creases and blood veins with luminaire. I just want to like the baby when it is done instead of just being relived to get it off the racks. I might use the sealers and some base colors but I really hate the rest. Maybe things will go well with the next one. Maybe the bad one was just a fluke. After all, I didn’t really let the paint cure before I tried to see if the repair worked. Air dry is just so much easier, so much prettier. Maybe I just need to see someone else’s babies cause my genesis babies are okay but not what I expected from all the praise of genesis.
Rant is over. You may now resume browsing but then get busy painting, you lazy person, you!!!
