Ok, but you will have to wake wayyy too early!  :rolf1:

If you do it at a decent time over there, then I'll be able to follow it!  :laughhyena:

Since we re both in europe we might have the maximum 2 hours difference...If I am to make a class, which isn't something really official, I would do it on afternoon, so that US people would be able to participate. But I am planning to do some more video tuts, so it won't be that of a class...  :grin1:

I want Liane to do a class on the shading! Her dolls have such a perfect and reallistic shading! I envy her in a good way.

Nothing perfect and realist at all! :surprised: But I can try, as soon as I figure out how my new camera works.. :hamdance:

GOOD morning peoples! :coffee:

Everybody ready for the first (terribly boring I'm afraid) steps in painting teeth?

Everybody have your supplies together?



Alrighty then! - lets get that paint off!

You're gonna need cotton-tipped toothpicks... you really are - tutorial here:
http://www.dolls-n-daggers.com/Dolls/Forum/index.php?topic=1392.0

ALLLLL the paint off - really, it's gonna MATTER in just a sec here! :grin1:



All clean?

EXCELLENT!! - now, go scrub her mouth with soap and water!  :laughhyena:



Rinse well, pat her dry, comb her hair... - and come chitty chat with me while she's drying! :grin1:

She's washed and ready for dentistry. I had to decapitate her due to her size!

'Tay then! - clean, dry and ready to go!

Let's get it together shall we?



Although the ONLY paint we're gonna be using today is the goosefeather... - yes, I know... **sigh**... you WERE warned today's class was gonna be boring! :grin1:

Here we go:

One drop goosefeather paint
One drop Extender/retarder
and a brushfull of water..

Mix well.

Alright (yes, you can say FINALLY!)

Pick up your very very small liner brush (20/0) - swish it in your water, wipe it on your rag, TOUCH it to your paint...
(ok, everybody go read 'ink like', is here: http://www.dolls-n-daggers.com/Dolls/Forum/index.php?topic=296.msg3283#msg3283)

Paint her teeth, and, since the odds are excellent you'll have more paint than you need in that bitsy space, go ahead and drag some onto her lips in stripes...


Cover your paint, come chitty chat for a sec...

Do it again:


Cover your paint, chitty chat... do it again:


It SHOULD take you AT LEAST three coats before you have a 'solid' color on her teeth - it really should.

Now for the fun bit! - Ready? - Stop.

You are ALL DONE for the day - now we get to wait (impatiently) for the paint to fully dry (cure, whatever)

Oh there will be more than enough time for you to go back and forth... - this is just 'prep work' really - unfortunately... needs to be done!

my friend who paints eyes on a black base uses Windex (he says any blue window cleaner will work) to thin his paint.  He says it reduces the dry time between coats.  Have you tried this?

Why we must wait for the paint to cure? My acrylics when they dry, they are dry for good, and even by rubbing them with a wet brush they don't come off...And that takes around 5 minutes, and they are good to go.
