What are your dolls made out of?
My dolls are first sculpted with LaDoll paper clay (both Premier and Premix variations) to create the ‘master’. I then seal and prime the doll parts with Mr. Surfacer (1000 and 1200 grit versions). I mold the parts with SmoothOn Mold Max 14NV and cast with SmoothOn SmoothCast 321. For dyes, I use SmoothOn SO-Strong dyes. They are ball-jointed and strung using elastic of different thicknesses.
What materials do you use for doll faceups?
I use Vallejo’s Premium Matt Varnish as a primer base, using a Badger Airbrush. I use Winsor & Newton acrylic paints (Professional line) and Mungyo Pastels, grated finely into powder for easier application. For pencils, I use Faber-Castell Albrecht Dürer watercolor pencils for eyelashes and other smaller details. For glossy lips, I use Mr. Color clear acrylic gloss (not solvent-based). My paintbrushes are a mix of different brands.
I buy my doll eyelashes from Nomyens– they’re the best imo!
For cleaning, I use an Iwata-Medea airbrush cleaner. To wipe faceups and paint jobs on dolls and figures, I use nail polish remover (Sephora brand) and pharmaceutical Isopropyl Alcohol.
