Miracle Blend

Premium Air Dry Paint

Instructions for Use

Kit Preparation:

Wash your chosen kit well with warm soapy water, use an old tooth brush for small crevices.  It is important that there are no oils left on the kit so a good clean with rubbing alcohol afterwards is a good idea if you do not plan to use Primer.  Rubbing Alcohol is not recommended if you plan to use primer.  For best results we recommend you apply a layer of the Miracle Blend primer prior to neutralizing and painting.  Primer can make the kit look shiny but any shininess will matte down after you have applied a few layers.

How to use Miracle Blend:

Miracle Blend paints only require water for thinning (cooled boiled water is best).  Thin medium can be mixed with water also.  Just as with heat set paints a little paint goes a long way, so be sparing as you can always add more.  We have found Miracle Blend works best when applied with a mop brush and pounced with a firm cosmetic wedge.  Unlike with other air dry or heat set paint Miracle blend paint actually dries lighter.  The thin medium is best to use when doing creases and veining.  Miracle Blend Correction fluid can be used throughout the painting process when only wanting to remove a minimal amount of paint.  Correction fluid may also work on cured paint. 

Neutralizing:

Any of the paint colours in the Miracle Blend range can be used during the neutralizing process.  Neutralizing should be done in one to several thin washes just as you would for reborn heat set paints.  For orange kits we recommend either aquamarine blue or vein blue applied in thin washes.  For pink kits we recommend either mint or Pthalo green applied in thin washes.  For grey kits we recommend burnt sienna applied in thin washes.

Painting:

Paint just as you would with other heat set paints.  Paint should apply smoothly and effortlessly if beading occurs add a drop or two of Primer to your paint mix.

Drying Time:

You can start with another layer as soon as the previous layer is dry, usually when you have finished your limbs, the first one is ready for the next layer.  You can keep painting without the hassle of waiting and baking!  After applying your final layer it is recommended to wait for 72 hours before you start rooting to make sure the layer has completely cured.  When you want to warm up the head for the rooting process itself, it is best to use a sock filled with rice, heated in a microwave and put it inside the head.  Though no negative effects have been reported it is not recommended to put the head itself into an oven to warm it up.

Finishing Coats:

We recommend applying a layer of skin booster to your kit prior to doing the final matte sealing coat to bring out the colours and depth in your painted reborn.  Skin booster can also be used to create a dewy skin look after applying matte sealer.  (Skin booster can be diluted with water for less intensity).  Detailing glaze is a low sheen glaze and is perfect for eyelids, nostrils, ear canals, nail beds and lips and should be applied sparingly with a brush and pounced out with a wedge.

Detailing Pens:

To Use the detailing pens apply paint and water to the barrel of the pens, more paint will be required for colour strength than with painting.  Squeeze pen until paint flows from the nib.  Test on paper towel and wipe away any excess.  Do not squeeze while using on your project.  Paint should be a continuous flow.  If flow stops test again on paper towel and check paint consistency

Hair Painting Sets:

You get all 4 colours, 1 matte sealer, 1 modified paint pen and 1 syringe in every set

The 4 colours

Burnt Umber which will allow you to do a number of shades from a very light brown to a dark brown depending how much water you add, I recommend you start light and add more paint to get your desired colour, if a darker brown is needed add a little black.

Black will need to be rather strong to get a true black.

Nail Tip is used with Burnt Umber for blonde, the strength depends on the colour blonde you require, start off with the nail tip and add a little Burnt Umber at a time to get your desired colour.

I have added White to this set to lighten any of the colours.

Already painted with heat set paints?

Using matte sealer, paint all over the area you wish to paint.  If it beads keep painting until it goes on smooth, once that dries you are ready to start painting your hair or eyebrows.

When you have finished painting, seal again with the matte sealer.

Paint Pen

Make up your paint in a small jar, then use the syringe supplied to fill the paint pen.
Do not squeeze the pen while painting or the paint will drip onto your work.
