I bought some 3-D Thick-Effekt-Lack from Rayher.com. I use it for filling in small flaws or wrinkles and creases that are too deep for my liking. I’m almost out of it. It’s an air dry product that I really like. I don’t bake my babies so heat set mediums won’t work for me. The problem is that Rayher is a German company and they no longer ship this product to the U.S. Does anyone know of any other air dry 3-D mediums that you’ve used that might work for this?
I have one from Miracle Blend. Works all right for me.
Find a German dolly friend to acquire it and ship it to you.
Would something like this work?
There are services called trans shippers for exactly that sort of thing. My gf uses them often for live fish
@jeanhai who makes the 3-d thick product you are talking about. Do you have a picture of the bottle?
A company called Rayher. This is a picture of the bottle. It’s my favorite product that I have. I even made a new eyelid for this baby whose original eyelid was accidentally cut completely off.
@jeanhai what about
I thought about the nail extender… BUT saw it is heat set… and white… so that wouldn’t be ideal.
@shosho that’s it. I just tried to order it. Cheapest shipping is $45 and California’s not on the list of places they ship to. I have to think about whether I want to pay 5 times the cost of the product to ship it and then have it shipped to someone else who would have to ship it to me. I’m hoping I can find an ‘equal to’ product here. Thanks for trying everyone.
Is it glossy or matte when it dries?
It has a bit of sheen but I matte it before painting.
Sorry to keep asking so many questions lol, but I was trying to research the 3d effkt stuff you have to find out exactly what its made for. It sounds very similar to 3D Crystal Lacquer. It comes it a really thick version and a thinner version which is also pretty thick, but I think the extra thick might work better since you said you’re using it to fill places and also a bit of molding/sculpting.
Several other stores sell it online too if you decide to try it, and I saw several of them on ebay; both the thick version and regular version.
Lets us know if it works if you decide to try it
Something else I was thinking about is liquid vinyl. They sell it in a little tube in JoAnns Fabric. Its made my Dritz. It’s not really liquid, but more like a gel (like e6000 consistency). When it dries I know you can cut it and shape it, but I’m not too sure about it’s adhesive properties and how well it will stick to the vinyl dolls.
Thats a shame and ridiculous shipping costs. I live in Germany if you needed help sending it to you.I can get it delivered to me free via amazon prime . I would need to check shipping to US though.
@shosho that’s very kind of you and I really appreciate the offer but I think I’m going to try the 3D Crystal Lacquer first. If it doesn’t work, I may take you up on your offer. International shipping is usually ridiculously expensive.
