Paint brushes for hair


#1

Has anyone here used paint brushes from Michael’s before, and if so, which one do you use to paint hair with? I’m headed to Michael’s now because there is a buy one get one sale on all painting supplies, and I would like to pick up some brushes for painting hair. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated! Thank you!

No one responded, but I bought every brush I thought would be good for hair painting. When I try them out, I’ll gladly let you know what did or didn’t work for me. :blush:

Thank you! I’ve been reborning for 8 years and I want to learn to paint hair- I have never tried but I’d love to learn!

I can’t paint hair either…still waiting for Christine Woolley’s dark hair painting tutorial.

Me too. I broke all of my rooting needles so I’m at a standstill with my first doll waiting for new needles to come in. I’d like an alternative method for doing hair so I can at least work on other dolls.
I also like the look of painted hair when you want a baby with little hair.
I feel the right brush is really the key to good painted hair.
I bought $78.00 in brushes. One better work!! Lol

I saw that online too! I will definitely be buying that when it comes out!!!

I can’t do painted hair either… so I use prisma to draw hair

Can’t wait to see you hair when you start!!

When I took Evon Nather’s painting class at ROSE we used a round #5 to paint the hair. The bristles fanning out made the fine hair. I would never have guessed. I always looked for the finest brush.


#11

I use a winsor & newton 0000 size watercolor brush from Michael’s. I still can’t get the lines as thin as I want but it’s the smallest brush I can find.


#12

I use a rake and a script liner.


#13

Beautiful!!! I have a rake brush but I’m so chicken to try.

#15

I tried prisma but I can’t get the pencil to mark the vinyl. Any suggestions?


#16

I bought a rake brush too. It does look scary. Lol.


#17

What paint are you using?

I use GHSP and I have to varnish first
