How to remove Monster High factory paint, by eyepins How to remove Monster High factory paint, by eyepins
I've been asked a few times and seen plenty of people asking otherwise, how do you remove an MH doll's factory paint. So here's a basic guide to getting your MH doll ready for customising (。・ω・。)

Tutorials on how to design your repaint and how to go about the process of making it over to come soon!

Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions/

My doll's factory paint won't come off, it just moves around the doll and my cotton bud isn't getting any of the paint off. I followed the tutorial. I'm using nail polish remover. What should I do?

What can you use to change the color of the skin?

Sorry, I don't do dying! If you search something like 'Monster High dye tutorial' you should find some helpful things.

If acetone spill ...
do I have any chance to make up for it?

If acetone spilled on the doll? I'd say just don't touch it, or rinse it off without touching or rubbing it. It might make the surface slightly grainy, but it's contact that causes the big problems. If you rub, scrub or touch the body when it has acetone on, that's what'll create marks.

I have a question... I just started customizing dolls and I know everyone says to use mr super clear to seal it but I don't really have access to it are there any other good sealants to use that are more easily gotten?

I've seen other people in the hobby suggest Testor's Dullcote, and there's some debate about it (and other types of sealants) here: [link]
It is pretty hard to get hold of, but if you're in the US you'll probably be able to find some within the US on eBay or to order without the long wait (I live in Europe and sometimes have to wait five months for it to arrive x__x)
