I have a Rochelle Goyle doll and her hair looks really oily. I have tried washing her hair multiple times but the gel and greesey look never goes away. But, thank you though. I also have to say I love the customizations you do on your MH dolls :3 I've been trying to do my own but I can never find the best tools to do so. I have used acrylic paint before but I'm too shakey for it
I've seen a lot of folks complaining about the glue seepage but I was lucky enough not to see it most of my dolls. Clawdeen and Frankie seems to suffer the most from my experience that I just end up rerooting them so that I don't have to deal with the icky glue.
As for painting, it takes a lot of practice. I've been drawing since I was a kiddo so I have tons of hours clocked in for experience. You'll get better at it too if you practice often enough.
First of all, your faceup technique is INCREDIBLE! I love your work, and this latest piece really manages to maintain the general expression and mood of Rochelle's factory faceup in a far higher-quality, more detailed rendering!
And second - I'm having some trouble with your portfolio! It seems that clicking on each of the dolls' gallery pages yields a 'Not Found' message! Something may be up with the linked addresses, I think.
