OK So…I patched chubby face, but discovered I don’t have the patience OR skills to repaint the spot and actually make it match the rest of his face. I tried and it started looking horrible so I whipped off what I could and left it alone. Other than his oven scar I think he’s very nicely painted. I’m more than likely just going to buy another Spencer kit and start over, but I don’t want to waste his body and materials on the boo-boo parts. So I was thinking about listing him on FB in the Boo-Boo baby group, but only as a painted kit, not a completed baby. Do you think $20-25 + shipping is too much to ask for Boo-Boo baby bits, with shipping he’d be about $35-40 for his head, limbs and full tummy plate.Too much?
My Next option is to scrap Spencer’s boo-boo head and pair floating head Jarome with Spencer’s limbs and plate…hoping I can get close to matching the skin color. Do you think he looks odd with these limbs?
ok new discovery, whatever I try will need to involve adding texture, like some sort of raised birthmark etc. I thought the gouged area was completely smooth but it’s not so it doesn;t look right when painted over. I will first need to build it up a bit more with thick medium or sculpy then paint it. Maybe a port wine stain or something like this
I think the head looks too small and the boo boo isn’t un fixable,give it a go . A birth mark or match close, smooth it out with acetone on q tip I wouldn’t scrap him he is adorable and your coloring is great on him one of the cutest Spensers I’ve seen…
Ok Ladies, I’m really having a time with this. Nothing I do seems to cover the actual slit and it looks really bad to me. Depending on the light he’s in and hos he’s positioned it’s a bit less noticeable…but it’s still there lurking lol. I haven’t baked the birthmark so it can be removed. Any suggestions on what to do now?
