Fixing Problems: Painting Over Moonies

If you have a doll that has multiple moonies...too many to try to fix by cutting them out and filling with new clay...you can still try to save it. I read how one doll maker painted over them with Genesis heat-set paints. Here is how it was done:
  • Mix Flesh 07 with a small amount of  Pyrrole Red 05 to the color you desire.
  • Paint entire doll with 3 coats of your flesh color.
  • Bake doll between all coats with an embossing gun, as needed, and also bake per the manufacturer's directions.
  • Finally, blush with Pyrrole Red 05 and bake again per manufacturer's directions.
  • Seal with Genesis Matt Varnish.
