Do you like to dress your reborn doll? Do you know how to make your reborn doll with painted hair?
The following is how to paint the reborn doll hair-hair painting tutorial.
The act of reborn doll hair painting came to prominence as some famous doll artists kept exploring new ways to get the best painting inspired hairstyles for their reborns. Taking to mind the fact that most reborns come with mohair, others hand-painted hair instead. Unlike the mohair, which is planted and prone to destruction if not handled carefully. On the other hand, the painted hair has no such issues.
Step 1: Pour some colored paint in a small bowl and mix well to get the desired color you seek.
Step 2: Make sure you have the reborn doll head ready and as a guide (optional), you can use a removable marker to indicate where you’d want the paint to end. Remember, you do not want the paint extending towards the doll’s face.
Step 3: Ensure you have all of your desired painting brushes ready. Remember you do not want to keep taking breaks just to get a particular brush during this time.
Step 4: Begin the painting process. Start by using some specially designed brushes to draw some fine intricate lines (flowing hairs) around the baby dolls’ forehead, ears areas, and back head to mimic that on real babies.
Step 5: Apply some code of paint on the reborn’s head to act as the base for more painting and desired designs (black or thick brown colors). Ensure this code of paint takes the form of a question mark, from the center of the head flowing towards the ear section, without going towards the face and ears.
Step 6: Still with the brush and paint, keep drawing more lines to mimic the question mark sigh you began with. This goes a long way to demonstrate the hairline on a real baby’s head. At this stage, the idea becomes more and more realistic.
Step 7: After coating the reborn’s head with the brown or black colors, the next step is adding the third color (cream white).
NB: If you are trying to recreate reborns of African descent, the dark and brown color combinations work just fine. However, if you are recreating a Caucasian reborn then you may need to paint the reborn with a few stripes of cream-colored paint.
Step 8: Once you’ve added the creamed colored paint on the reborns head, ensure to add a little more of the thick brown color paint. This will give a serene and realistic look to a natural baby. Which of course is what you need after so much work and effort.
Step 9: Step 9 is the most vital piece of the whole puzzle. This step entails adding the 3D texture medium to either the brown or the black paints used on the reborn’s head. After that, continue with the painting process. Do this until you get a realistic hairdo on your reborn. It should be noted that if you cannot lay hands on the 3D medium color, do not get yourself worked up. Make do with what you have.
