I’ve found the opposite, but do you guys know any way I could paint over hair that has been previously rooted. After I remove it, of course
I don’t think it would work too well. The rooting would leave little holes where the paint would pool. I could be wrong, just a guess
I was thinking this too. The only way I think it would work is with thick dark paint. This girl really wants this specific doll redone, but I can’t reroot it
Maybe if you paint it in layers…lighter to very dark. Varnish it first? It might work.
I used putty. Baked. Then lightly sanded smooth. Then painted.
LaDonna is a reborn genius. One of absolute favorite artists. I think this video may help some. It gives an idea on how dark the paint needs to be and then to paint fine hairs from there.
I’m redoing a personal baby and I haven’t seen much pooling.
I do varnish and use a dark color. Holes still showing a bit but it’s not obvious,unless looking very close
I think that’s what I’ll try first. She is deciding now if she wants to have me fix that doll, or do a custom with me. Thanks for the advice
She did my cuddle baby Kyrie and I can vouch for this.
I am not sure how to fill them so It would look ok.
You could re-root. If the hair is sparse you could get the same color or complimentary color and root in and around the existing hair.
I know @RosieCait did it and it was very successful re-do. She use air-dry.
