Jonas Make Off - First Reborn Attempt
#1
Here I go, starting Jonas' Make Off book, girls. Smile

This is supposed to be a step-by-step book of my first reborn attempt.

I have already got the doll kit (Jonas by Linde Scherer) and here is a picture of it:

Do you think it needs some kind of 'wash' (green, blue, purple....)?

Thank you. Smile

I don't think, but then again I'm a "noobie" LOL... If you want to try it (that is you think the color of sculpt is too peachy or pinky) go for it! I'm wingin' it with Zoey. She's kinda peachy, but I don't have the mint color. Secrist talks about the internal bath in their catalog book, but I'm not doing that either. I heard some of the girls talk about the vinyl starts to look bruised over time.

He's cute! I bet you're super excited to start! When do all your supplies arrive? Did they come today?! Big Grin

I usually apply at least 1 mint wash to my kits now as it seems to take the vinyl colour down a shade or two to a more fleshy base, but if the vinyl is light then I'm sure you can skip it, I have known several people who don't do a neutralise...x
he is really cute btw x

I don't usually neutralise unless the kit is really really pink and this one looks fine to me.
It is not wise to do an internal wash on a doll but if you are using the secrest instructions then make sure you use them only on their kits.
Secrest have untold problems with their products and the quality of their vinyl is possibly the poorest around so from my point of view their kits are the ones to avoid lol.

How exciting Andrea! You'll soon be working on your very own reborn baby! I've just googled for images of your Jonas scuplt and man oh man what a cutie! Do you know if yours will be a boy or a girl yet?

Good luck, looks like a nice kit and I don't do a wash if the kit vinyl is flesh colored
