Faceup Tutorial- KDBory Part 2 by emmychu Faceup Tutorial- KDBory Part 2 by emmychu
Part two of two. ^^
I did Ben's faceup today, and I wanted to record the process. So I thought I might as well make it into a tutorial, even though I'm not nearly good enough to be teaching people anything. So even if it's labelled 'tutorial', really it's just me demonstrating how I do things XD
This is only my second faceup on Benjamin. It's maybe around my 15th faceup alltogether ^^'

Info:
Benjamin is a Kid Delf Bory from Luts. That means he;s MSD sized ^^

What sort of gloss do you use? And once a faceup is sealed, is it okay if you touch the doll's face? Like just brushing your hand on them accidentally or gently touching?

What if you can't find any MSC

Sorry for the late reply!
It's important that you make sure that anything you put on the resin is not going to damage it. MSC seems to be the top recommendation, and it's my favourite to use. You can also use 'Testor's Dullcoat', which is a lot easier to find since it's used in a lot of other hobbywork. You can look for it at art specialty stores or places that sell things like model kits. :3

BUT! If you can't find either of those, just make sure you ask around. Den of Angels has toooons of info on what's good to use. Make sure to get some advice there, since I only have experience with those two products!

Hey, thanks! X3
This faceup is kinda old now, too, and I've gotten in a lot more practice.
Good luck if you decide to save up for a BJD! You won't regret it! ♥

Oh I love BJD's~ >//w//< Ben is so cute 8D

I have an OC that changes his makeup/looks pretty much everyday and I was wondering if you could do face-ups everyday if you wanted, or if that would ruin the doll?

Eheh, thanks~! >///u///<

And actually, when I first got my girl doll, she went through a lot of character changes and different faceups. It wasn't quite every day, but I cleaned it and redid it a lot.

It's fine to remove it and redo it as often as you like, and it won't harm the doll at all! That is, of course, as long as you take care to do it properly- as long as you spray sealant on the doll and don't use any products that are known to stain the resin, then you could repaint and repaint as often as you want without anything bad happening. With the sealing spray, it's pretty easy to take off the old facceup with some brush cleaner and just repaint it whenever you want! ^^

Your very welcome! I'm totally obsessed with BJD (I'm dying for my own) and when i saw Ben i was like "Sqeeeeee! Ah too cute, too kawaii!" X3 You can probably tell i'm a little excited because i'm getting a pixie cut tomorrow (After waiting for ages) and i think i've found the doll i want :D

you could always mod the body when you get him. If you're not confident in taking large chunks out of him, there are a bunch of talented people who could C:. Adding breasts is a breeze as well. Just get some epoxy and shape them, stick them to the chest and sand them smooth. Color matching would be your only problem and there are people who do that as well.

Another option is to just buy the head and then get a luts girl body.

Ah, that's a shame. They still have the normal El in stock, but I suppose the faceup would be a little different if you got it from them, and you can't get that awesome outfit DX
But yeah, Luts is probably one of my favourite companies, I love all their dolls! But I'm more of an MSD person, so I always look at the smaller sized ones X3
