After doing my first major doll customization, I have learned a few things. Watercolor, when thinned to the consistency of milk is is good for getting a walnut texture. But to keep it from getting everywhere it has to be sealed at least twice. Gouache gets some nice effects and its easy to clean if a mistake is made, BUT IT TAKES FOREVER TO DRY! And you need even more sealant to ‘waterproof’ it. Definitely not worth the effort. The same can be applied to thick water color paint. Pearlex powder stops looking shiny and shimmery after the 4th layer of sealant. And slowly becomes a tint as more is added. The bathroom fan is not a substitute for a window and it’s definitely NOT adequate ventilation for spraying MSC. What are some things you've learned through out your time in the hobby?
