Stripping is 2/3 done

I had three kits that needed stripped, and I got two of them done last night :) These were the practice kits for a new reborner and now they will be my practice kits for the air dry paints.

Thought you  might like to see the comparison pictures – the one in the middle is the one that hasn’t been stripped yet (they were all three like that one before).

DSC_0963 DSC_0965 DSC_0966My paint stripper stuff works great, it’s just hard on my wrists because it takes some elbow grease to get the paint scrubbed off. I’ll get the other one done soon :)

Selling all of my brushes and GHSP

I am switching to air dry paints and am selling all of my brushes and Genesis Heat Set paints.

The brushes are below. As you can (hopefully) see, there are several reborning specific brushes, several maxine mops, and some other brushes that I used for creases (love that triple sided one for feathering creases), veins, nailtips, eyebrows (silver falcons, cut to just a few hairs) and more. None have been used for anything other than GHSP. Some are well loved and others are barely used:

I am asking $45 obo for what you see in the brushes picture (36 brushes and 2 berry-makers, plus a few other items to do with painting).

Now for the paint lot (43, if I’m counting correctly, paints and mediums, in the lot). I don’t know what to ask for these, but I see how much little sets go for on ebay and websites and most of these still have a lot of paint, so I’m just going to say $125 obo

Here is the whole set:

And here it is broken down, with the tops off so you can see how much is in the containers:

The mediums (the air dry lid always dries stuck, and is a lot of work (gripers and warm water) to get it open, so I didn’t mess with it, which is why it’s still shut, there’s about 1/4 in there):

Emmy Lou is born!!

I thought about adding this to the last post, but wanted to give Emmy Lou her own post :) She’s been born and waiting to be posted for about a week, I think.

She is so darling, I am very pleased with how she turned out. She even has a silicone insert for baby fat in her bottom :) She is up for adoption for $225

Too long since I last posted

Can’t believe it’s been so long since I last posted! Here’s what’s going on with the babies.

Custom Eugene is done:

Custom Acorn is waiting for his last layer of hair glue to dry so he can be born

My current wip is slowly getting hair

The pup is on hold, just too much hair for me right now, only got half the tail done! lol Sorry, no picture of this one

 

 

Been sick

I’ve been sick all week so far, flu bug that has turned into a nasty cold, and the only thing I’ve got done in the nursery was taking the pictures of the last post. But I’m hoping to get to finish painting Acorn tomorrow night and start rooting this weekend. I’ll keep you updated (after sending the parent the pictures, of course) when I have something to share.

Custom is about ready to go home

Just have to get his body and put the pocket in it (for the voice box and heartbeat box) and “birth” him. :) He’s such a sweetie, glad he’s going to get to go home soon.

Acorn is ready for final painting details

DSC_0895 DSC_0897Just need to do the final touches (finish lips, do eyebrows and nail tips, and the final wash to give skin pores) then he’ll be ready for hair :) He is coming along so well, can’t wait to see how he turns out!

Thinking about last baby of this sculpt

So I have been working on a custom (the baby in the picture, just have done some undertones, long way to go, but he is my model lol) and it has me thinking about the last baby I make with this sculpt. I really want to do something different and I don’t know if I want to play with sculpty and do some sort of alien or yoda or if I want to do more color and use these rainbow eyes:

DSC_0887What do you think?

 

my WIP babies

I currently have three babies in progress:

DSC_0871Emmy is done, just waiting to be born some time in the next few days :)

The middle baby is only half-rooted, will be finishing rooting this week I hope.

The last baby, a custom, needs to wait for hair glue to dry and then eyebrows after a hairr cut (I usually do eyebrows first but this one I needed to see how the hair went).

 

And I will be starting a custom fairy (with a sculpt I already have, of course, since I’m only finishing up the kits I have and not buying any more, going to start using the old dolls for my new venture) as soon as the first payment is made.

 

Meet Emmy Lou!

I’ve been working this little sweetheart on and off for a while now and she is finally ready to be introduced :) She’ll be ready to be “born” later this week and I’ll take more pictures, but here she is for now:
