Want me to paint your doll?

Limited to four slots. No reservations or holds.
No recasts, please.
Standard face-up: $30+, any size (Tattoos, freckles, facial hair, etc. will cost extra. Inquire for details.)
Face-up removal: $5+ (If a doll is heavily stained or removal proves unusually difficult, an extra charge may apply. Face-up removal costs will never exceed $10.)

SHIPPING COST IS NOT INCLUDED IN PRICES.
You are responsible for paying for shipping both to and from my location. Although I promise your doll will be returned well-packed, insurance is highly recommended because I cannot guarantee how the postal service will handle the box!

Solvents for doll cleaning and face-up removal
• Winsor & Newton Brush Cleaner
• Pure acetone*
*I’ve done heavy customization of dolls and have never had issues using acetone for face-up removal. I do not typically use acetone except on unusually stubborn areas, such as those heavily glossed. However, if you do not want acetone used on your doll, please let me know. Most face-ups can be removed with brush cleaner alone, but may take additional time and work, so may cost extra. If your doll is vinyl or ABS, it MUST be cleaned with acetone.
• Citadel Purity Seal
• Liquitex matte medium
** Please specify your sealant preference. All face-ups are finished with Purity Seal for durability. However, face-ups completed with airbrushed Liquitex are faster to complete and are not affected by weather; face-ups completed purely with Purity Seal may be delayed in the event of wet/humid weather. As I (unfortunately) cannot control weather conditions, estimated dates for face-up completion are not available. In particularly disagreeable weather, it may take two to three weeks for a face-up to be completed.
