#133

Okaaay… You talked me into it. Lol. I will share on WIP :wink:


#134

I want to see as I planned to start painting hair on my first reborn…


#135

Just posted on WIP @YelenaRey I am NO pro @ it, but I think this link should take you to it.


#136

Thank you!


#137

No problem :blush:


#138

I like it, especially the side and back. Look very newborn-ish. Also as I struggle with newborn lip color I’ve been asking everyone here, so what lip color did you use? Thanks.


#139

Thanks @YelenaRey that’s what I was going for :slightly_smiling_face: as for my lips, I mostly use red with a touch of black… but as I go I might add a little bit of my creasing color or blushing color etc. I do very diluted layers and just look as I go and add whatever color I thank it needs.


#140

Thank you. Funny thing that several artists here recommended me red with black, but whatever I managed to stain my Ella’s lips, everything after that looked unnatural. I gave up and varnished her already, but I think I’ll still try to neutralize them. After all, this is what the first reborn is for - learn, experiment, make mistakes and learn from them. At least my lil Ella is so patient with me and let me torcher her with several sets of eyebrows :joy:


#141

That’s right, you will learn as you go. Just stick with it and you will get better with each baby.


#142

@hyelah1990 I like your painted hair very much, was it all prisma pencil or paint?


#143

Thanks @Simone :slightly_smiling_face: I used a prisma pencil a little lighter than my skin tone to map it out. Other than that it’s all paint.


#144

Red with a touch of black.


#145

Thank you! Will use that on my second baby.


#146

And now this lady’s Etsy and Facebook pages are gone! I sure hope those people got refunds!:confused:


#148

I do, too, but I have a feeling they didn’t…


#149

I use red that i’ve mixed myself with a bit of blue, sometimes I’ll add a brush tip of burnt umber but later put a tiny very very thin layer of purple or blue and it gives them that nice natural colour. Flesh will tone them down but be careful not to let it pool between the lips, I wipe my brush many times on kitchen towel before I apply to ensure I don’t put too much or pool.
