I cant seem to get the new grey vinyl color to change, all it does is keep getting lighter and lighter looking more like grey/white :( I even tried a pink/mauve to add color but nothing seems to be working, Im using the cosmetic sponges should i try a mop brush maybe?
Help please :( BB PLEASE go back to the pink vinyl or similar :((

Here is how to neutralize the grey /peach vinyl
yellow ocher -1 wash-bake
add to that bb lip/nail and just a tiny bit of burnt umber -the color should be like a flower pot -terracotta-1 thin wash-bake
next do a lip/nail blush with a touch of dioxidine purple and crimson-color is a strawberrie red-1thin wash-bake
add a bit more crimson to this mix (darker but still very thinned out )1 wash -bake
last wash is burnt umber add a touch of Phalo blue -1 wash -bake
after this is done start your flesh layers - This is a mix of a couple differant Tuts that I have tweeked -works great for me -just keep those washes REALLY thin and wattery !!!
also let every wash dry compleatly and check really good that you dont have any pooled paint in any creases before baking and let every bake cool all the way before adding another layer
Hope this helps !!!
Cher

wish I had read that before I painted my Taylor kit. She certainly is a strange color. Thanks Cher.
