About two years ago I went through a magenta phase where I loved this color so much that I overused it a bit unintentionally. I pulled out my Penelope Toner that I painted back then, and I want to cut/tone down back some of the magenta. What washes have worked for you? Would a lime green wash work?
Have a pic?
Can do one tomorrow. Crummy indoor lighting tonight.
I love her coloring.
If you want to tone the pink down you can do a couple light flesh washes (titanium, baby skin) super thin. It might give you a powdery look that you can tone down with another 1-2 washes of a deeper flesh wash. I would totally leave her like this, I can see her with darker painted hair, or dark rooted hair with that just born wet look.
Looks great to me ~ newborn fresh! I would leave it just the way it is
I like the color too. Dark hair would definitely balance everything out.
Thank you, ladies! Planning dark hair painted hair for her. Just trying to figure out what hair style will look good on her big head.
Sounds like a plan. Hope you post an update so we can see what she is looking like.
A thicker head of newborn hair. Paint it, if you hate it, wipe it. She is beautiful bald too.
I love the tones. I say on to hair!
I love. her coloring…magenta you say??.
I may have to venture there soon!!
Yeah, I went crazy with magenta about two or three years ago. Taking those babies back out of their boxes made me uncertain how real they looked. Thought I’d overdone it. She’s kind of shiny which seems to augment it a little, too. Maybe once she is matted it won’t stand out this much. Newborn was the look I was going for, so if you all think she looks ok I’ll leave her as is.
Quin. Magenta 02, was my color of choice also a couple of years ago! I way overdid it multiple times. I toned it down several times using a lime green color with some white. I mixed some yellow into sap green and added a touch of white. It worked well. I also tried Earth mint, which didn’t work very well. That being said I think this particular baby looks great, she doesn’t look too magenta to me
I love her coloring too.
Isn’t it a lovely color when inside the jar? LOL!!
Thank you, Evee!
