Crystall~

I use sharpie! :D Crazy I know, but shut up. Its easy, its fun, but its not professional and im sure there are ways that will turn out better.

AND HEAVENS NO!! I do not use sharpie on my mh dolls. That would stupid. :P

I use RIT dye, it works perfectly for me. I suggest using the powdered one. You could also use watered down acyrilic paints.


it works! i tried on a barbie and it worked!

It actually depend on what the hair is made from. Take for example the hair used for My Little Ponies, which dyes easily. Dyeing it is fairly easy, you just get some RIT dye, put about 1/4 of the packet (it makes a strong dye. Also if the hair is still attached to the dolls head, be careful not to get the doll's hhead in the dye since it WILL be peranent) in boiling water, stir well and dunk your hair in and put until you get the desired colour (make sure your hair is tied off either in the middle or at the ends

 

Then hang you hair somewhere to dry (a clothes line is best since I'd hate to see someone accidentally dye their wall or carpet). Once the hair is completely dry you can reroot it, brush it out, etc. Some people also swear by using vinegar in their dye (like dyeing Easter eggs), but I'm not sure it's necessary with hair.

 

I hope this helps you. :D

Yeah, rehair it. There should be some tutorials online on how to do it. You can order hanks of hair from Dollyhair.com for pretty cheap. It makes the hair more consistent and allows you to make controlled streaks of color like the regular dolls have.

 

Be ready to dedicate a lot of time to it, though....I rehaired a pony once and it took a few hours, several broken needles and threaders, but some pretty nice results.

 

Never, ever use Sharpie. They are cheap markers that get a bit of an orange sheen to them after a while.

I used the sewing needle and thread method presented by Customanon on Devart. Once I got the hang of it (Use a thick needle that won't break, make sure you toughen your needle threader with glue, etc.) It started to go like clockwork. I've never used a rehair tool.
I was working on a TG&P Trixie, so I was gonna try making her an outfit before posting any pictures of her.
yes i know, my mum tried putting some cleaner on the couch and walls, and well, lets just say they changed color xD

Some dye remover might help with the removing the excess from the couch and walls. I'm not sure about the china though...^.^;
