For those who have made these cute babies before. I want to know how exactly did you go about coloring the hair. Thank you for your help in advance.
I use food colouring diluted with clear alcohol and then paint on.
I just made one, and did the same thing. I just made sure my brush wasn't too wet...after dipping it in the colour and vodka mix, I gave it a couple of quick swipes on a paper towel before painting. You don't want too much liquid on the gumpaste (or fondant...whatever you choose to use). Also, I waited until the baby was fairly hard before painting. I don't know if that is necessary, but it made sense to me for some reason.
After the colour dried, I went over it again with a very dry brush and some more colour to give the hair some depth.
It was my first one and I'm quite pleased with it.
Hi. I use flesh colored dust, great for definition of the crease areas and the hair. Dilute with vodka if you want a darker color. Turns out great. If you have the baby laying on it's tummy, does your's have a fault in the left foot (hollow spot)? I questioned the fault and the company said it wasn't a defect as this is how the master mold is!! I have seen others with the same problem.
The babies are so darn cute.
APeople love them and order them all the time, but I think they're just creepy.
At work we call them dead babies
Lol I don't think they're creepy. I like how realistic they look.
I think they are realistic and very adorable. Not creepy at all.
I don't think they're creepy. I brush the powder color on dry.
I use dry dusts. For dark hair, I use cocoa powder.
I think they're a bit weird if you eat them... but if that's what the customer wants, that's what they get!
