TIP: For quick color changes of heat-set paints on your brush, try this; wipe excess paint off your brush, swirl the brush in rubbing alcohol, wipe again and repeat. The alcohol cleans and then evaporates out of the bristles.

Heat-Set Paint Layering
Doll makers who do china painting on their porcelain dolls use a technique very similar to the technique for painting with Genesis heat-set paints. Both techniques use the same layering method. That is, the applied paint layers are heat-set after each step; for porcelain dolls, in a kiln, and for polymer clay dolls just a heat gun or oven.
