    9. Usagi Thanks
       
    10. You've got all of my tinies except for Banji. I believe my ns and ws Banji's are normal resin. But I don't know if the Gall Dew tan they sell is sandable.

      Limhwa will be releasing a very limited ToMe tiny in two shades of tan which Dollyholic thinks will be mixed in the normal resin. No verification though on mixed in or surface tint, and the doll is not on the Limhwa site yet (still in development).

    11. Thanks Carolyn I added banji

      I know about the toMe I need to ask more on sandabilit from Dollyholic


      I didn't list Kaye Wiggs' upcoming tiny yet either since it's not yet in production
       
    12. I think that the 1st release of Yo-Tenshi Kasumi was in normal pureskin, not UV. Her 2nd release (along with Yuh) was with UV.

      Anyone know for sure?

      I can just say that having 1st Kasumi next to UV resin, you can definitely see a difference (UV is a tad "lighter").
       
    13. Gothiclibratian thanks for reminding me yes that is the case. I'll go update
       
    14. I just heard from Dennis at bobobie

      Hi Aree,

      Thank you very much for your message. I also noticed your thread about resins. We are using normal resin now. But a UV resistant powder is added to the resin. It protects the resin from UV and heat etc. But it is not UV stabiizer. We are soucing French resin in China.

      Thank you very much.
      Dennis

      So I added that info to the list
       
    15. bump adding tan skin to bobobie

      I need help with other companies' tan resins
       
    16. ToYou is French Resin.
       
    17. Okay, I sanded down a patch on tanning Roxydoll Lucy's headcap and it's definately lighter. I'd say the colour is surface treatment.
       
    18. I thought ToYou wasn't french resin. Dollfair said that though the limhwa larger line was French resin the smaller ones were regular resin
       
    19. Thanks for putting this together!

      Re Pocket Fairy: Blue Fairy has used both normal skin and beauty white skin tones for the Pocket Fairies (the Strawberry Short Choco and Chocococo that are available now are beauty white)
