Working in the New Repaint by MySweetQueen-Dolls Working in the New Repaint by MySweetQueen-Dolls


:star:My Commissions are OPEN! send me a note if you are interested
Repaint Commissions Info- Materials I use: watercolor pencils (Staedtler, 36 colors), pastels (Faber-Castell, 24 colors), 3 brushes (Milan, 5/0 1001, 2/0 611 and 6 641), cotton cleasing, nail polish remover (Claire's), purpurin (Claire's), water, latex gloves, gloss varnish (Americana) and acrylic varnish (Orita) - What kind of dolls I repaint?: Only plastic dolls (monster high, bratz, barbie etc), I won't accept other kind of doll commissions because I have no experience or the proper materials to work on other surface like resin or wood. - Price: All my repaints will cost $50 independent of the doll - I only paint faces, not bodies. - I'll only submit photos of the finished job because WIP photos can make you doubt and that will slow me down. If you really confide on my style and my hands, then I'm your face-up artist. If you feel unsure without process photos, then maybe I'm not the one for you, don't worry, it's not a problem ^^ - If I have to remove the prev

Makeup: me

I'm trying to improve to take repaint commissions someday, what do you think?
they are not perfect but I'm really proud of my progress at the moment, so please tell me if you are interested^^
and help me to improve please!

I'm really excited about submitting a photo about how I repaint the monster high dolls :3
this repaint was already done, but I wanted to take a photo adding the final touch: purpurin
I noticed people prefer cute repaints more than sexy ones and I wanted to try with that style soon, so it was a perfect chance to try ^^
I liked the previous one more, but this one stole my heart too
please comment, ask me watever you want, give me your opinion etc :3

This is so cute :'D i love the idea of repainting dolls and i was planning to take it up as a hobby for over the summer to prepare myself for A Level art and design. I was wondering if you could give me some tips on techniques and materials to use?
It would be much appreciated if you could help me, and keep up with the amazing work :D

thanks^^
sure! It may sound silly, but to start the first thing you will need is patience, because repainting is really hard, and the first attempts always look dissapointing compared with our expectations, but if you take it seriously and don't stop practicing you will feel very proud in no time.
The hardest part is drawing the eyes, so take all the time you need and don't stop until they look good to you. The most important thing is you like the result.
As last tip, sealant is important to make the paint look more intense, so if you are going to use it, protect your doll's hair and body with latex gloves or with anything useful you have at home because it will ruin them with time
and about materials, here you have a list and you can see them in the image [link]

from looking at the list, all i'll need is a sealant, so that's a positive ^^ It's good i've been into art for many years, because i've seemed to accumulate a variety of supplies that'll help.
Do you also change the hair? And if you do, do you style the pre-existing piece or completely change it with a new doll wig?
Again, thank you so much for the advice ^^ i'll be sure to thank you when and if i upload my first attempt, and will more than likely ask for advice in the future :D

I don't use to, but yes I cutted the original hair of one of my draculauras and I put a wig on her, she was the only one who had a change in her hair :p
no prob, I'm glad to help! and I'd love to see your first attempt, don't forget to show me please^^

Vale, estoy flipando, usas pasteles para pintarlas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Es genial!!!
Yo estoy empezando a aparender a pintar con pasteles pero en papel, y dan un aspecto muy real. Me parece genial lo que haces!!
Qué haces luego para fijarlo? Porque vi en un video que tienes que usas algo brillante líquido. ¿No se mueven los pasteles al utilizar pincel?

:iconmysweetqueen-dolls:
MySweetQueen-Dolls Featured By Owner May 10, 2013
wow, gracias!! :D
despues de maquillarlas hay que darles una capa de sellante en spray, sealant, MSC o como lo quieras llamar xD
si, eso brillante es el gloss para los labios, hace que se queden con un aspecto jugosito, pero ese que tengo que come un poco la pintura y me compre otro mejor hace pocos dias
y nop, no se mueven, al menos por si solos (si los toqueteas o mojas la cabeza ya si) pero hay que estar un rato pintando para que agarren, es decir que si das 2 pinceladas flojitas el color se va con un soplo de aire

OK two things
1. reminds me of that bit in toy story 2 when woody get re-painted
2. i love that she has a bobby pin in her hair, not quite sure whether it's becasue it puts everything to scale or because it's like she's being treated like a real person for once...

your re-painting is amazing. you must have a really steady hand.

how you erease the paint done in factory from the face? do you use some kind of turpentine...? and are pastels you use oil pastels? i'm interested about repainting dolls, but i really don't know how to start. do you have any advice to beginer? sorry about asking this many thing at one go. ^^; i hope it doesn't bother you

i really like you repaints♥

with acetone (nail polish remover):)
yes, I use oil pastels, and don't worry about the questions :D I like to be helpful :D
as advice I'll tell you repainting dolls needs a lot of money in materials at first and specially a lot of patiende. The first works won't look perfect, but if you start it's very important to don't surrender and keep doing it.
You can see other people's repaints to find inspiration, see their technique and try to reach their level with time :D
and thanks!

i noticed you use dry astel to shade on the dolls. do you use some kind of material to make it stick in there or the pastel naturally holds to their faces?
Reply
:iconmysweetqueen-dolls:
MySweetQueen-Dolls Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2013
nope, it get sticked to the faces really well :D
the only problem is you must take care of them, not touching the makeup with the fingers or don't put water on them

Does the re-paint wash off? How do you keep the watercolor-pencils and pastels from smearing/washing off?
Reply
:iconmysweetqueen-dolls:
MySweetQueen-Dolls Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2013
yes, it get a bit protected with a sealant but even with it it's something delicated, better to don't touch it with the naked hands or to let them get wet.
the paintings get well "sticked" in this plastic, if you take care with the doll the makeup will keep perfect :)
