:iconjadejeebie: Already posted this, but I figure I should post it too.
I did the clothes, accessories, pet, and painted the faces. Jade painted the body and accessories and lets not forget Ripper's box which can be seen on Jade's account.

You and Jade have a FLAWLESS partner ship. ....and yes...I am just now getting around to commenting on this..and why yes it has been sitting in my inbox that long waiting for me to find the words to describe my feels.

any who..I LOVE this Doll. the work put into her is EXQUISITE. her coat is marvelous and I love her gloves. she looks like she hopped out of my paper and into real life!!! I LOVE her earings, very clever idea there with them and her hair is the PERFECT color. I don't even know where you get hair that color. but she looks stunning, absolutely stunning. I love the detail on her lips and I know that bright color couldn't have been easy to do with her dark flesh but you NAILED IT.

and let me tell you this doll has withstood the test of time. she has been so perfect from the first moment I got her. I just brush her hair and dust her off every so oftne- not to mention I'm fairly abusive with my dolls. (aside form her little shoe mishap when I first got her shes in excellent condition) she was PERFECT all I had to do add was a little yellow scrunchie for her hair (that I totally did not steal from my baby cousins barrette bag) I even found her a yellow VW Beetle car from the thrift store. shes like my imagination in real life and I have you to thank for helping me make her a reality!

thank you so much babe! You definitely got a customer for life! I always tell everyone you do marvelous work!

They are just edited shoes. They used to be Clawdeen's wave 2 shoes, just cut up. I only added clay to the heels and repainted them. Nothing fancy for this pair.

I actually started to! She didn't ask for a scythe. But I can't finish it without my rotary tool kit, which is at *JadeJeebie's house.

Haha, I find that hard to believe! I've practiced customizing these weird dollar tree barbies, but they didn't turn out so hot. I used acrylics, but they weren't liquid, so I'm wondering, does that help? Mine are in the weird, gel-ish state, so if it's possible, how can I 'water' them down?

HOLY EFFIE TRINKET. THAT IS ALOT OF COMMAS.

I just use regular ol acrylics like this [link]
I only water it down when painting the eyes. But I use thinner for that, not water.

That's a relief! I have a whole case of those downstairs. :D When I custom I just do small things, after one failed body repaint (Miley Cyrus turned into a demon). Thank you so uch for the advice!

Also, don't forget to use soft bristled brushes! Usually that goes without saying, but some people use stiff bristles and wonder why there is so much streaking XD

Ok, now it's time to beg my parents to take me too the craft store! When we went to get the paint, my dad said, "PSSSSHHH you already have brushes." They were plastic crayola ones. XD

Wow, she looks exactly like Ripper! Talk about doing her spot on! Love the outfit, especially that goreous cape and shoes. Her skintone came out great as well, not to mention her eyes and such. 10 out of 10 on the rating scale!

You guys make a GREAT team.
Is it difficult to paint & make everything?
What kind of paint is used to paint the face and body?
Sorry if i'm asking too many questions.. I'm just really interested in making a custom but I want to have the right tools first!

:iconshadow-people:
Shadow-People Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Regular acrylics were used for both the face and body. We DO have an airbrush machine to evenly coat the body with paint though.

:icontwig321:
Twig321 Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2012  Student General Artist
That's cool I have a bunch of acrylics :D
Do you have to thin them out? I watched a tutorial where they did so I'd like to know if it's necessary.
I wish I knew how to work an airbrush.. It's not too hard is it?

Sorry about the questions again!! It's not bothersome is it?
Reply
:iconshadow-people:
Shadow-People Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Its not necessary, just take your time and paint in thin coats. Paint thinner is helpful for some things, like if you want to get fancy with the eyeshadow or something or create a certain effect with the lips.
Depending on the airbrush, it can be difficult to use. Well, not so much use. Setting up is probably the hardest part. If its not done right, something could go wrong. And it needs to be regularly cleaned.
Nah, I am used to questions >u<

Ok cool, I'd prefer it that way ^-^
Hmm, Any brands you'd recommend? Of airbrushes, paints, sealants?
Also Thank you for taking time to answer my questions!! lol I checked the "original" message and i realized that i asked you if my questions bothered you.. if it did then that'd be bad lol

I don't get super expensive airbrushes. I think ours was $80? But then again coupons were used. I have no particular brand in mind, we just look at price tags and try to grab what is cheapest and make it work for us. So basically, I just use whatever I can get my hands on and make it work for me. Though I hear Mr. Super Clear is the best sealant you can use. I haven't been able to find any in a store though.

It's okay, doesn't really bother me.
