- Hello, my name is Sheena, I am 36 years old and very new to reborning as well as this forum... I have my first WIP Megan sculpt by Pat Moulton from BB. I am using air dry paints and she is coming along nicely now (after four strippings) I know its not good on the vinyl and I took care of washing the vinyl after each strip down.. I was very afraid of that process... I am grateful to have found this forum and any advice or just tips are greatly appreciated!
Hi Sheena and Welcome to REAL!!
Wow!! You are doing great already!!! I remember my first reborn - stripping and stripping!! LOL I admire you starting out
with air dry, which i find harder to use than Genesis paints. If you can master the air dry paints you are doing awsome!!
I am still learning with the air dry, and have invested in them - hoping to get better and better every time i use them though!
I have found that you can really get a reborn painted much faster than with the heat-set paints thats for sure! One of our administrators here
April, is a master at air dry paints, so if you ever have a question, she will be able to help you out. I am not sure which other members
here like/use the air dry paints, sure there are more though - so dont be shy and just ask!! :)
I recently finished the on-line peaches and cream conversion to air dry paints class (here at our forum), and i love how my reborn
is coming along!! (She just needs hair-rooting, eyebrows and lashes).
If you need anything at all just ask, lots of knowlegeable ladies here!! Cant wait to see your very first baby!!!
