COLORING VINYL -OVERVIEW- BRIEF HISTORY OF REBORN PAINTING

http://www.prillycharmin.com/restore/5paint_intro.htm

BRIEF HISTORY OF REBORN PAINTING
 
Reborn artists have used many different kinds of paints and colors to blush and tint their vinyl dolls. Initially they used acrylic craft paints and stamp pad inks. They painted the dolls inside and out with the craft paint. Sometimes they layered different colors inside the vinyl, to get different skin tones.
Eventually RIT dye, lipstick colors, stencil paints and glass paints also became popular for tinting and blushing. As I write this, the reborners have experimented with just about everything from the craft and art supply stores, hardware stores, as well as cosmetic and beauty supplies.
And, they are still using all of it! The Reborn art has not settled on any one method or technique... the artists continue to use all their own favorite materials.
This diversity is good. However, vinyl is an oil-based product, so you do need to select paint or glue that will adhere to vinyl. Even if the product you apply today seems to work ok, within a matter of days or weeks the vinyl can work against it and repel it.
