slimeblock asked: Hello! I am gonna be modding a doll soon, and I was wondering what type of paint I should use, As I am making the daughter of the flatwoods monster, I kinda wanna do a full dull body coating.
Acrylic paint is always good. Remember to thin the paint and take it slow when doing the face.
For the body I gave my dolls several coats of paint then sealed it. There are plenty brands of sealer you can use but I think the best one is the spray varnish they use on Warhammer 40k models.
Some of the paint will scrape off where the leg joins the hips, there’s really nothing you can do about that, also paint wont take on the joints ( too much friction).
If you really want some good advise you should ask John Pickles. Doll modding is his jam.

I’m moving out of my parents place on Sunday and as such my Internet won’t be up and running until January.
