    I Have Some Questions....

    I'm new to the world of vinyl dolls, and I just got Hatsune Miku, my first Dollfie on December 28th. I have some newbie questions, I hope that you all don't mind answering. Are Dollfie faceups sealed? Is there some substance I should avoid, like isopropyl alcohol or nail polish? If they touch her, will she melt? I'm asking that because I would like to give Miku her classic bangs, and I was considering using hair gel, but not if it'll melt her face! I'm really reluctant to take her wig off, since it was a fight to get it on her head. Should I use white glue instead? I was told that vinyl dolls don't yellow even in the sun, is that true? Do they have a low temperature range I should avoid? I'd love to take her out and do a photoshoot in the snow...when we get some. (Climate change sucks!) Is there a top heat range I should also worry about? I'm guessing leaving her in a hot car is also a no-no. I know that there are high and low temp limits with resin BJDs, but I've taken mine out in the snow and on a sunny summer beach with no problems. How often will I need to take her apart and tighten her? I play with her pretty often, right now she's sitting next to me watching me type and watching music videos. I often watch TV/movies with my BJDs as well, especially late at night. I'm sure I'll think of other questions, and when I do, I'll probably ask them in this thread. Feel free to link me to threads that may answer my many questions. Thank you everyone! Ryu
  2. I'm new to doing faceups, and so far I'm using Staedtler Karat Aquarell Premium Watercolor Pencils. I like the pigmentation and the fact they don't break easily, but I'm not happy with the variety. The most I could find was a pack of 60 pencils.I managed to snag a pack of 72 (Artisto brand) and 120 (Kalour brand) for cheap that I plan on reviewing and comparing to the Staedtler. For anyone who wants budget pencils. 😊Anyways, here are the questions:1) What brand of watercolor pencils are your favorites?2) Why do you prefer them?3) How's the pigmentation?4) Do they break easily?
  3. Hi I’m really hoping to find a face up artist to work on my two MDD heads that is located in North America (Canada or the US), is there a list somewhere? I tried to use the search tool but nothing came up.
  4. Hi! I do a lot of faceup lately but there's one thing that I couldn't do right - how do you achieve the gradient effect on the eyelashes/eyebrows? Faceup picture from Watashi Doll (watashidoll.com) for reference:

    Dollfie Dream Len repaint

    I somehow managed to get a hold of a Len at a regular price a bit ago… and he arrived the other week! of course, everyone’s first question was if I was going to repaint him. I’m happy to report he didn’t beat the record of 2 hours before being wiped upon arrival. 😜 (Noel still holds that) a few days after arrival he was wiped and prepped. I slowly worked at him over the last week and a bit. Today he was finished! I’m very proud of his repaint and plan to give the same treatment to his sister after I work through some commissions. I included a comparison - while his default is cute, I’m extremely happy with his new look. 🙂

    Ai-chan faceup!

    I was looking at Parabox Ai-chan's photos and thinking that I felt the sculpt had potential but I wasn't super crazy about the very round irises they used in the examples and it made her face shape feel different. I wanted to test to see if this was true, so I ordered one, since they're so cheap and I was ordering some other Parabox things anyway. I'm still learning how to do faceups, so my results could be better (I think I wanna do another round of blushing on her lips and cheeks cus you can barely see it at all in this photo), but I do really think this is a fantastic head sculpt for a cheap price and easily accessible! I tried really hard to find other people's custom Ai-chan heads but only saw a couple here and there, so I figured I'd share mine too. Pardon the messy unstyled wig.

    DD Meiko repaint

    I need to remember to share my faceups here more… 😓 I recently finished this repaint of a DD Meiko head. She was really fun to paint… she’s got a nice sculpt that could work for anything to be honest. I’m hoping to eventually buy her myself so getting the chance to repaint her was a nice way to figure out how I’d customize my own!
  8. hi all :] I recently bought an imomodoll doll but I still need to find a faceup artist to commission. I'm looking for an artist who can do anime style faceups on vinyl dolls. If you've had any good experiences with a faceup artist or you are one yourself, please respond! Thanks < 3

    Modded DDH-22

    Here is a modded DDH-22 I finished a few days ago! She is my first additive and open mouth mod. The shape of the eyes have been changed by pasting soft vinyl onto it~
  10. I missed out on the Classic Chitose head drop on The Grid (it shows up at select times on the chaos section), and I really wanted her sculpt. I sort of saw it could be possible painting her face to the Mirai sculpt so I can't help but do this faceup on my blank head.

    Custom DDH09 Miku

    I've always wanted to buy the licensed Miku Hatsune DD... But one part of me wanted to customize my own. I got myself a DDH09 and painted the head similar to Miku! It's not perfect and I'm still practicing more, but I liked how it turned out so far. Wig is Cotindoll and the cute sailor crop set is from DollDelights.

    Different faceups for your smartdoll?

    Hello, I've seen lots of smart dolls and there are a couple that I like but I'm worried about wiping a faceup has anyone done it? any issues problems etc? I'm looking at Coco skin, Tea skin and Cinnamon skin. I figure milk is probably the same as DD and can be changed easily but I'm concerned about what would happen if you wiped one of the darker skin tones. Let me know please! Any faceup artist etc I would love to see some samples before I jump on board and buy a girl I really am loving how Prowess and Genesis look but I am thinking I might want to change the face a bit any advice would be great!

    Kotoka Saionji

    Hello, I painted a DDH-06 head to make Kotoka Saionji from Idolmaster: Cinderella Girls and wanted to share photos of her since it's her birthday in Japan! I'm so satisfied with how she turned out and think she's absolutely adorable in the My First Star outfit set. If anyone plays the Cinderella Girls games, please vote for her in the voice elections later this year, it would mean so much to me if she ranks high enough to get voiced. Thank you, I hope you like her as much as I do! 💖 Instagram

    DCH21 Repaint

    Hello everyone! I’d like to post my faceups more often here. I keep forgetting to… 😅 Todays post is one of my most recent commissions. She’s a repaint of a DCH-21 in tan! (the elf ears are the extra ears that you purchase through dream choice) I’m really excited to share this commission as I know there’s not a ton of DCH-21 repaints out there!

    DDH22 Faceup

    Hello again! I haven’t posted in a while, but I figured I’d throw up a recent paint I did. this girl is an artist choice head, so I painted her how I liked with the intent to sell. She already was adopted and will be on her way to her new home soon! My favourite thing about her is that she has 3 different expressions depending how you style her bangs! I’ve affectionately named her boss baby 😆

    Black Gouache Paint?

    Hi! Might be a dumb question, but will black gouache paint stain a doll? I did very watered down chalk pastels for my DDH-03's eyelashes and brows for her original faceup, but I wanted to darken the lashes somehow, and have seen people use black paint on their dolls. I had also heard some people say it stained their dolls, and that I should avoid red, blue, or black paints or pastels. I know this is probably a complete noob question, but I'm just a bit scared to do it and ruin the faceup! Not really related, but does anyone know good techniques to do natural size and placement freckles? I haven't done them on her yet, so I just wanted some tips before I began! Thanks!!!
  19. I was very nervous to wipe her default faceup (even if I have a specific idea for a doll, I feel so bad wiping someone else's work), but I'm really happy with how she ultimately turned out. In general, I tend towards more stylized faceups anyway, but this was my first time doing one this anime-esque. 20200815_014929 by Manaphyyy, on Flickr This was the first attempt, which I wiped pretty quickly. The way I did her eyes made them look pretty far apart and her smile was a bit too flat/wide. I also tried giving her nostrils to try and have her fit in more with my resin girls, but it looked a bit uncanny so I ended up not doing that the second time. 20200817_004627 by Manaphyyy, on Flickr 20200818_214632 by Manaphyyy, on Flickr After looking for a few more examples closer to what I wanted, I started again, and this is what I ended up with. I'm not 100% satisfied with the eyebrows, but they're mostly hidden so it's not the end of the world (she'll probably get a new faceup again eventually anyway). I'm always learning with faceups, and I'm glad Celia looks more like I want her to now. 💖 Bonus silly headless shot:
  20. I ordered a body off of Mandarake back in March and it just arrived, which got me looking for heads for my (soon-to-be) new girl. I know that eBay and Mandarake have heads with face-ups, but where else is it possible to buy heads? At the same time I've been looking for an artist to commission to possibly do a face-up if I can't find a head online that's already done, but it seems all artists commissions that I have found are closed 💔 So what's your go to place for looking for heads with a faceup? And where do you look for artists to do a faceup?

I was hoping to meet everyone's girls and boys if you don't mind! Show me pictures of your dolls!
  22. I did my first doll mod (ddh-01) and anime face up yesterday! I have a question if anyone can answer- to get that nice smooth look, do faceup artists use paint thinner or just water down the acrylics? I’m thinking of wiping this and trying my hand at it again this up coming weekend. This is a custom doll of one of my characters btw!
