    - If you are using Genesis paints you need thinners…water will not work.

    Can water be used instead of paint thinner?

    this question was asked, but the steps go: flesh coat, mottling, veining, right? or veining then mottling?

    what kit that..i think i might want to make a little ethnic baby boy with that kit :)

    - yes, you do flesh coats, then mottling and veining etc…repeating is only if you want to add more mottling. Internal washes are not recommended as they can bleed out over time.

    I am confused. So do you paint your reborn then do mottling then veins and then repeat? And if so how many times do you repeat? also I have heard you have to paint it blue from the inside is this true?

    Hi! Umm, i was wondering after you appy the mottling layer, do you pounce over the vinyl with a wedge/cosmetic wedge so it will soften the look or do you just let it dry without pouncing? :)

    - Once I have finished her, she will have a photo shoot done.

    also do you paint flesh before mottling?

  20. DSavage1456 on June 1, 2012 at 2:06 am said:

    Quick question for you…do you do the mottling prior to painting an ethnic doll or after? Same question about veining. Please excuse me ignorance, I’m totally new at this. Your’s are the first and only videos I’ve subscribed to. Thanks in advance.

    - Sorry but I don’t do repairs / restorations.

    If I have an ashton drake doll (non reborned) could I send it to you to be reborned and what would the cost be?
