Few tutorials will tell you to paint a base coat on your doll kit. But it is certainly worth the time you'll spend doing it!
It takes a long time to add a layer of paint, so I had to spit up the video to make it easier to render and upload.
Part 3a goes into detail about how to mix your base coat paint and apply it to the doll, how to paint an even layer on your doll, some of my favorite painting tools and the Number 6 Never Fail Rule of Reborning!
In Part 3b, I share "my little trick" for painting a perfectly even complexion layer on your reborn doll's head. Added bonus: Why I don't hollow out the nostrils!

Hi! I am Kim. I've been creating dolls all my life. I started stuffing cotton balls into my mom's pantyhose when I was a little girl. Now I hand-craft dolls that look and feel like real babies.
