Hair painting practice

I’ve seen some pretty impressive hair painting on here. So I’ve been practicing. It’s nowhere near as good as you all but hopefully I’ll improve.

I started painting hair after discovering I hated rooting and feeling like penciling hair just wasn’t working for me, I couldn’t get enough depth.

I have to say it took a lot of practice to get where I was feeling ok about it.

I had to get all zen with the paintbrush.

It’s a progression, don’t give up and don’t be afraid to experiment, you can always wipe it of and go again, and again, and again.

Great start! So far, I have only rooted hair. I am intimidated by painting hair. I know I will work up to it one day.

I’ve always dreaded rooting and now my arthritis makes it too hard.

I tried painting hair on a practice head over and over, it was awful. :sob:

Hi Gina what brushes do you use if you don’t mind my asking?

Although I don’t reborn, I’d be extremely hesitant to start poking holes in something I’d painted. I also rather like the way painted hair wears better in the long run and doesn’t get messed up while interacting with a doll.

Looking good Natalie!

I understand about arthritis. I don’t know how much longer I will be able to keep rooting hair.

just regular flat brushes, cheapies, that I cut up with scissors, I just try to make it look like rake, or really bad fringe. I also use a nail art brush for the fine hairs, a long one like a signature brush. Nothing fancy.

Thanks appreciate it. I do cut some of my brushes too.
