From another world, to mine by hiritai From another world, to mine by hiritai
In an attempt to rid the buttery yellow from Mikey, she ended up getting a complete makeover.

This was done with RIT dye. I can't be bothered explaining, there are tutorials everywhere and it's a pretty common RITual HAHAHAHAHA. I'm so punny. I used Dark Brown over Cocoa Brown (don't use the latter as it's too red).

Anyway, she likely won't be staying this dark, or I will be doing it again, or sending her to someone who can sand and dye her, as sanding is a pretty physical job that I can't do in my illnessy ways.

I now know that I will use RIT dye when I will dye dolls :D

Ohh sanding work? I'm soon a pro sander XD I have sanded all my dolls, and my poor Domuya boy have gone through a transformation, from a very bad blushed poor boy with dents and discoloration [link] to a very lovely clean and beautiful resin body [link] Lately, I drilled him.. that was scary XD But fun :D

I don't know much about these kinds of dolls, but she's very pretty. I don't think you should change her color, it looks great like this!

That's a really nice color! Mikey is always so cute. :) I'll have to remember the colors you used, too, for when my WS girl starts to get too yellow. :) They look really natural mixed.

(Have you tried OxyClean or baking soda and peroxide to de-yellow her?)

Thankyou! I love her so much, no matter the colour XD I really like the colour, hopefully I can blush her a bit too, and i'm hoping to freckle her a bit to cover the inconsistencies, and do some tattoos. Maybe when i get some MSC I will tan her again but a bit lighter. I dyed over her faceup (I did the same with my MD Ryu, Fate, who was already tan, i just dyed him darker) and so only the MSC is dyed, it scratches. The body doesn't, you have to clean it off with acetone or something.


The thing is that the typical peachy resin loses red pigment, and that's why it goes yellow, as the yellow is the undertone. That's why pink dolls just go like a ivory white, they have no yellow undertones. It's all red pigment (dolls like DOD and Zaoll, those are the only ones I've had experience with lol) Those treatments would just lighten her, which isn't what I wanted. For a white skin doll, it'd be perfect, but I wanted to give her a bit more colour. I did, just a bit more than expected lol.
