Another thing I have to buy. It is never ending, I guess that is how it is in the reborn world. I got it now. :wink:

I lay puppy training pads on my work table when I’m painting. They’re great for soaking up accidental spills or for drying off my brush after rinsing it (I use air dry). I also find disposable eyeliner brushes extremely useful, especially for eyebrows and very fine hair details xx

My experience with the throw away sponge and E6000 glue was not a good one, I tried to spread the glue in the head but the hair started pulling out on the sponge so I took the sponge off and just used the stick. So I have missing hair is some places SMH. @pia I have toothpicks.

Do not buy these off of amazon. I thought this would be a great deal but NOT.
They are very porous and basically worthless.

However I did buy some at Big Lots and they are decent but a little on the small side. I think they were a $1

That’s what I got as well. Mottling turned out horribly bad, now I use them to clean off my palette

I found some elf brushes and bought a couple :wink: thanks for the tip! I bought a concealer brush to it appears to be good for blending or even dragging out veins

I bought a couple elf brushes but, I wasn’t that impressed. Maybe Sonja can tell you which ones she likes…
You can get some nice brushes at Michael’s for about the same price especially if you go online and load a coupon to your account. They usually have at least one every week for 40-60% off. I also love these cheap brush sets from China and nail brush sets are great too!!

Michael’s will let you use one of each type of coupon in each transaction - printed, newspaper, phone and receipt from previous week coupons. Not sure if you could also print out the email one. Use for thinners, brush cleaners and jars, paint trays, prisma colored pencils,… Then there are baskets for beds, American girl shoes for smaller babies, beads for necklaces and paci holders, yarn…I want it all!!!

Must have - gloves for painting and for glue in head, I use a glove and fingers! Not latex. White plates or bowls from thrift stores for paint mixing. Needles and rice for rooting… But my big must have was a cabinet to put it all in!
