The 75mm version of Oleana is also printed, but Meirsoa really pulls my attention the most at this time. As Inarah mentioned, it's really a case of doing things one of two ways - waiting for things to dry, or - only using one type of paint in an area. Vince showcased both in that oils vs acrylics video, and I'm probably going to go mainly oils for skin and fabric, and leaning more towards acrylic use for filters and the hair.. Given that she will mainly get my attention on weekends, I doubt the waiting for paint to dry will be much of an issue Ah, it's not that. Oils on resin supposedly degrade the resin; exactly how I'm not sure, tbh, because I've never tried it. One of the first things I learned when painting doll makeup; acrylic paint, or chalk pastels; no oils. I had a preference for chalk-pastel; acrylics without an airbrush were tricky. From what's been said so far, sounds like that base or primer coat is probably going to be the thing that makes the difference for this, tbh; especially if your first layers are acrylics. If the oil never touches the resin, it can't degrade it, or so. So I'm interested to see how it goes, since I don't really have the space (or interest, tbh; I was never very interested in working with oils) to try it myself. ^^; 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
