Different faceups for your smartdoll?

Recommended Posts

DarkAvenger696

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!

I've got extra heads in the old cocoa skin tone that I had repainted by a good friend of mine.  Both turned out really nice.  But neither were painted to begin with so I'm not 100% sure if it would be an issue or not.  I know plenty of people who have wiped faces on tanned or darker skinned vinyl girls and had no problems at all.  So I'm sure the SmD girls wouldn't be hard to do or cause any damage.

 

I don't have any good close up pics right now of the new heads other than a couple I took quickly at a doll meetup.  This is a Moonlight head sculpt that was blank and I had painted by a friend.  I use this as an alternate on her sometimes.

Thanks! I didn't even think about using white for around the eyes!! I'd love to see what other people have done as well, its good to know blank heads seem to be fine..and I mean everyone makes mistakes and has to wipe it so I guess if color didn't come off that way then it should be okay for removing a faceup as well.

I did a partial repaint of the Sana mold a while back (eyes and blush) and I had no problems with it at all. I used Staedtler watercolour pencils, soft pastel, and good ol' MSC. From my limited experience, SmD heads tend to take dry mediums better than the softer Volks vinyl. Hope this helps you out a little?

I forgot to add one more I have.  😉  

 

I also got a Mirai head in the old cocoa color.  She was painted by Buffdolls as well and I really love how she turned out.

 I also got some better pics of the other Moonlight head.

And just for reference sake, here's the default Moonlight faceup.
