Painting Resin Enchanted Dolls


My set up is a lot different than what I would use for painting porcelain dolls; instead of china paint, I’ve got acrylic paints and pencils. It’s weird. I am able to replicated a similar, airbrushed effect though. Still getting into my groove.

    each new picture makes my heart flutter.
    the resin dolls look so good, the hope of maybe being able to aquire one in the future is wonderful.

    interesting, did you find a way to string them with elastic that pleases you?

    Marina I paint in Acrylics I like Open Golden, gives you an open time to paint. One day give it a try. I think no matter what paint you take it will all end up being a masterpiece.

    How I love the sound of paintbushes rubbing up to each other…

    Thank you for sharing, there is nothing I love more than coming home from work and find you sharing your art….makes my day!

    It’s inspiriting to watch you try new things! I appreciate that you are confident enough as an artist to share these things with us. It is interesting to see the difference between the matte resin and the glow of the porcelain dolls. But I also now have lovely little hopes of being able to acquire one in the future…

    People also use pastels, I imagine it’s good for blushing too~

    Hi Marina
    You might want to try dry pastels as well (applied with a brush)
    I’m painting/coloring BJDs and Blythe this way and they give a soft, delicate shading…..

    p.s. where are your gloves ^___^
    p.s.2 I would love a Blank ED….

    Thanks for the pointers, guys.

    The reason I don’t use pastels is because color pencils accomplish the same result. I rub them on the sand paper and dip my brush into the dry powder.
    Same thing, really.

    Oh, so they are pencils.

    Pastel or watercolor?
    I just noticed there is a difference after spraying pencil vs pastel with coating…
    They usually both go darker but pencils(at least watercolors) change their color a bit..
    But maybe that depends on a brand..
    I yet have to try different ones.

    There is this brand of pastels that I just looooove…. they are super soft and give a rich color… I made this kit box..I just open it and have the whole palette. They have shimmering pastels too.. But I can’t remember the brand and they are all in pieces to fit in the box ^___^

    I always love seeing work areas. If possible could I know what brand brushes you use?

    Марина, здравствуйте! Подскажите, пожалуйста, а какими способами можно будет рассчитаться с вами на выставке? Наличными, по карте? Я приезжаю в Москву на выставку и не очень ориентируюсь в том, где было бы можно быстро обналичить деньги)) Хочется просто гораздо больше времени разглядывая кукол, а не бегая по городу в поисках нужного банкомата))

    ☺ Marina! I duplicated this message from previos blog post to be sure that it will be read by you.
    ♥♥♥ Marina, huge thank you for attention and super hearty offer for me! ♥♥♥
    It will be another happy miracle for me if you will be so kind to put aside for me some of your wonderful products! If you do not mind, I beg about: one dog Tag with ball chain $ 12.50 CAD – Cathedral, three laminated paper dolls (my appetite increased *blushing with embarrassment*) – two Sapphires $ 14.50 * 2=29 CAD + one Cinderella $ 12.50 CND, and one Russian Enchanted Doll Book $ 75 CAD. Prices from your site, is this prices are still working? Should I exchange roubles into canadian dollars, or you will accept payments in roubles? I will come on Saturday, October 6 how I will meet you? At what time do you plan to be at the show that day?
    Sorry for many questions! I hope this will not be a burden. I am SO grateful to you! ♥♥♥ ♪♫♪♪♫♫♪♪♫♪♫♪♪♫♫♪♪ ☺

    I use the same paints on resin dolls. They’re great and efficient. You’ve painted your resin girls beautifully! I think I need pencils as well, not just paints and soft pastels…

    May I ask what you use two draw the little hairs of the eyebrows on? It looks like a pencil to me…
