A couple of questions:
What type of paint do you use?
How do you seal it/do you seal it?
Are dolls still slightly pose-able?
Will putting on shoes scrape the paint?
Do you airbrush or use a paint brush.  If you use a paint brush are brush strokes visible?
Do you only offer 1 flesh tone?
Do the base dolls have to be light skinned to begin with?  Do you have any examples of repainting a dark skinned doll?
Do you prime the doll before repainting?

Sorry I guess that's more than a few :/

The type of paint is twofold. One is a sealant as well as a primer, a spraypaint that is meant to go over vinyl (so far the only brand I've found that actually works). I do a very light coating, then I paint the colour over top with liquid acryllic ink. It's expensive, but worth it because it goes on with no brushstrokes :)
Yes I seal it, though it doesn't seem to need it- better safe than sorry.
Yes they are posable, especially if the base is a draculaura, cleo or howleen because the joint colour is so similar that if it happens to wear after a lot of use it's not a problem. When I posed the finished doll in the picture above, I did tons of poses and none scraped off.
Shoes won't scrape the paint if they are the right size or a little bigger, though it may if you're taking them on and off too often. Eventually after wear its bound to scrape at the heal a bit. Trying to put Draculaura shoes on Clawdeen doesn't work well. Draculaura has such tiny feet! Heels and sandals are safest, but boots are a higher risk.
No brushstrokes are visible :) It's completely even in colour, with no added texture.
So far I only have 2 fleshtones, very pale and one slightly darker but still not as dark as Cleo. I can also do white or jet black.
Its better if they are light skinned, so that if you do scrape off the joints eventually it won't be as noticeable. But if you don't plan on handling them too often then I can't paint over any colour.
Essentially, this service is meant for people who want to do repaints to make a collectors doll. It's not really intended to be used like a regular doll. Too much handling can ruin a repainted face too.
Hope that answered everything :)
My Deviantart has some of my  dull body repainted dolls. The Harley Quinn started out as a Clawdeen
