Pre-painted and rooted Kimi?

I purchased two of the factory prepainted Kimi’s for my nieces. I plan to give them to them for christmas after I do some of my own improvements to them. These will be going to a 4 year old and a 6 year old but I want to make them a little cuter.

Basically I plan to Condition the hair really good and style it for them. I was also thinking of adding some light veining and a little more blushing too a few areas and maybe a burnt umber wash and then use the satin varnish if I need to then add glaze lips, nails, etc. Do you think this is possible without stripping the kit?

Has anyone done this to the prepainted kits?


I managed to comb through their rats nest lol and I decided that they are actually much cuter then the pic in the gallery. My nieces are going to love them. I decided not to do any added blushing as they don’t really need it for a 6 year old and a 4 year old. I am just waiting for the magnet for pacifier to dry and stuffing and weighting the rest of the body then once they are put together I will cut and style their hair put them in a box and wrap them up for Christmas. I’ll post a picture when I am finished.
