Designing a repaint pt.1, by eyepins Designing a repaint pt.1, by eyepins
I thought this would be pretty simple, but it ended up needing two parts ;;

This is by no means the only way to go about designs, but I've been asked for my way so.. uh, here it is. I promise the actual repaint tutorial is coming soon! I hope this is helpful, and as usual please just ask if you have any questions (。・ω・。)

part 2:
how to remove factory paint:

I painted her face already but if you're willing to share I would like to hear your advice so I can be even better.

I'm sorry for being so late ;ㅅ; Making eyes symmetrical is very difficult and is really just a matter of practice. Even if you have a design ready to work from that you plan to refer to, draw it out on paper several times first and practice colouring it to get a good feel for how it's going to come out when you do it for real. And work lightly! Water down, press lightly, work in layers if possible (and working from light to dark can help a lot! colour first, outline second so you don't blur your outlines). You can always add but it's a lot harder to take away. Hope that helps!

Thank you! It should work for pretty much any doll that's made of the right material. You need dolls with soft vinyl faces like a Barbie - harder plastic will melt when you remove the factory paint.
