When it’s time for me to paint hair on my saskia, do I varnish before sketching out a map or do I wait until I’m finished painting the hair. Lol it’s so confusing!
I always varnish first, it gives some tooth for the pencil to write on
Awesome ok thank you!
Would I varnish the head again after I’m done painting?
I am sorry fog brain this morning, I read it wrong I thought you were just mapping for rooting. I have never painted or drawn hair, I am a big chicken. Hopefully someone else can weigh in that actually knows lol
How are you painting the hair? Prisma pencils or paint? And what paints do you use?
I am using GHSP, with prisma to map where I’m going! @EnchantedOrphanage
If you’re using prisma, I’d definitely varnish first. It just doesn’t go on as well without varnish.
Does she varnish again over the prisma pencil when she is all finished?
If you want to keep the prisma on there, then varnish over it again. Otherwise it may rub off.
If just prisma mapping than paint, varnish first and after. If just prisma, varnish before, between each 2-3layers and after.
If you planning to use GHSP don’t varnish, otherwise painted lines will not look smooth. Paining on top of the varnish makes paint grainy.
What if I’m mapping with prismacolour? Should I just save varnish to the end? @YelenaRey
Prisma is very hard to write with if head is unvarnished, but it’s possible with the very sharp pencil. I also find out that peach blond pencil is more visible on unvarnished head. For example I use it when I start on eyebrows placement. I find that it’s easier to map painting pattern with the paint. Just go lightly. You can always take it off if you don’t like it.
I only did one complete Prisma hair on GHSP varnish. On all other my painted hair babies I used paint and then varnished it at the end.
Did it answer your question?
Yes thanks so much!
You are welcome
