I wish I could do it, just saying. @specialmoments is one of my favorites. It just doesn’t work out for me. Seems like it takes a lot of patience. I loveeee painted hair!
Don’t underestimate yourself. I’m never completely happy with my painted hair. I sold one of my painted hair babies at a doll show so it was seen in person and held. The customer called me when she got home and said she thought it had rooted hair. I guess she didn’t mind too much because I’m currently working on a rooted custom for her. Maybe I’m not the best judge of my own painting skills? I tend to compare mine with the ones that look like you can comb it and I KNOW I’m not that good. I really like the realism of rooted hair, but painted hair is so much easier on your hands and wrists. Just keep practicing on a test part, or even a piece of paper, and you’ll get the hang of it. Mine still doesn’t look like you can comb it but it’s sure better than it was.
I wish I could paint hair too. I would only do painted hair. I think rooted hair babies sell better. But i don’t like rooting too much. Not like I did when I first started.
I’m feeling the same way. I am trying a different style right now and I don’t like it either. I think I over think every thing in reborning now. Sucks out the joy.
Thank you so much!!! Need I show my first attempts at painted hair! Just horrid!
I wish you would. Maybe there’s hope for us to progress like you did.
Pleass post your horrid pics to give us all hope, @specialmoments.
I’m not where I want to be, but for sure have come a long way since first starting to paint hair. I have not rooted a head in two years and my dolls sell just fine. Sometimes people ask if it’s rooted or painted. That in itself is a compliment to me.
I think I’m going to root one soon. I keep running across people who say they like to root… I want to see if I can find a way to like it too.
Lolol! When I tried once upin a time, it was no good. Kinda like nails to me. @specialmoments your work is amazing. Rooting takes forever and hurts my kneck and back.
Same here. I would love to be able to paint nice hair. Some of my favorite babies have painted hair and I love it as far as collecting goes. Painted hair is so much easier and always looks nice.
She still one of my favorite babies of yours.
Mine too! I have several that are very special to me but there is something about Amelia that tugs on my heart strings
