Testing a new air dry, water borne paint

Stephanie Sullivan, of HunnyBuns Dolls and Reborn Supply, a leader in the reborn industry for many years, has asked me exclusively to test a new paint that she is developing.

She calls these paints 
 You can read more about them in the link above.

This paint is an air dry, water borne (water based) paint and I am excited!

I have read the technical information sheets on the base pigments and I have no apprehensions of using the paints for creating quality Master Artist Series dolls.
The colors that Stephanie has developed are beautiful!  
I love the LDC paints but one thing I am super excited about these new paints is that they SHOULD be very matte and velvety feeling.

The LDC paints, even though they are supposed to be matte often times are sheeny without a base of Genesis Matte Varnish.  

I am very honored that Stephanie has asked me to work with the paints.  

I will be starting my first doll kit with them on Sunday and will be doing progress pictures featuring my evaluation of the paints as I go. 

I know I said I was going to start painting a new doll kit yesterday (and I intended to begin using the paints) but since I only had two days left in my work week and the holidays are fast approaching, I opted instead to use yesterday and today to paint up 4 Create a Babies...Created and I plan to assemble Mr. Trinitee today.  I'm still debating on a name for him.  

I'll pop in sometime tomorrow with pictures from my personal collection.  You won't want to miss out...Sophie Faber is home and is EXCEPTIONAL!  

Have a great day!   


  1. I'm excited to hear more about those paints from Hunnybuns!

  2. I look forward to seeing more on painting hair with all kinds of paints. I am just learning.
