I HATE doing veins. They’re so tedious and boring. Can’t somebody invent some kind of stamp for that?
Che’air Dry paints has a vein stamp! I like painting veins, but the stamp works well too:)
Thats interesting , learned another new thing.
Sometimes I only “suggest” veining with a large mottling sponge.
Here is a video with the veining sponge.
The pictures are not that great but I hope you get the idea.
I created my own sponge that I use. In these pictures, the camera picked up the color big time. They are not this obvious in real life. These are two different dolls. I used a cosmetic wedge and plucked out my design.
How do you vein with a large mottling sponge? I am struggling with veins myself. For me, it is trying to draw the shape of veins.
You can Google vein maps to see shapes.
But you can’t see every vein through the skin. You may only see hints of blue here and there. So sometimes I’ll selectively mottle with a sponge with huge, uneven holes… key, round or tiny holes will not work with this… so I mottle it on, then blot off some of it until it kind of looks like veins. It really does look good under other layers.
