I have been using them for years. (I think I am one of the first to buy them)I like them a lot,Bloomers & Bows were better, but I have found them to be easier to use then a lot of other air dry paints.I guess I just needed to get use to them. To make sure paints stick to my kits I wash the kits well with soapy water and rinse well,if the kit is a very smooth kit, or if it looks like it may have oils on it, I will wipe it down with rubbing alcohol to remove any oils that may keep the paints from sticking.( I also do this if I am painting with Genesis heat set paints) and I always ware gloves when painting or handling kit/ pieces as the oils from my hands can case the paint to not stick. I do have to use many many thin layers of flesh color or I’ll have a chalky looking baby, and I do add a little white to the light flesh to get a lighter looking baby. But with the berry color and other colors I found I need to use more,so I guess it’s just what you find works better for you. I do like these paints. I do not use water to thin with, I use the Luminaire paint thinner,I personally found it to to work better with the paints.After I am finished painting,and after I let it dry for 48 hours,I add Luminaire shine reduction sealer. I use 2 sponge wedges,1 to dab a very little layer of the Luminair shine reduction sealer,and the other to dab till it is dry. After this drys for 24 hrs, I root my baby head. Then after I put baby all together I dab another light Layer of the shine reduction all over baby’s face,legs,arms,feet,and hands. I let baby dry for another 24 hrs. then I diaper and cloth my babies.Hope this helps someone who may want to try air dry paints. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply 28 of 29 people found the following review helpful PERFECT FOR REBORNING!! SUPER QUALITY PAINTS!!, July 18, 2011 By Kathy in Texas “Kathy in Texas” (Texas of course) – This review is from: Luminaire Acrylic Air Dry Reborn Doll Paint Basic Set 9 Colors (Office Product) I bought this product a while back, and it continues to amaze me at how superior the quality and results are regarding reborning and other crafts. It takes very little, and you use water to thin and clean up! Luminaire allowed me to continue making my dolls after my doctor told me the “Odorless Thinner” I was using with the heat set paints was causing me horrible allergies and migraine headaches,and I would have to give it up to avoid being sick all the time . Luckily, I heard through the grapevine that this product was out there, so I searched on Google, found it right away, and have been using it since. I use this paint very sparingly, with even better results than the other. No funky burned smells, no risk of ruining your doll in a hot oven, no headaches, and best of all, you will get more natural, realistic results. I’ve painted several dolls with this kit, replacing only a couple of colors that I use quite a bit. The fashion doll kit is perfect for the vintage dolls and the flesh colors are amazing.I won’t use anything else now, and my only regret is not finding it first…..before spending so much on those heat set paints. I do love my Luminaire paints!! Several of my reborning buddies use nothing else but Luminaire tii, and love the way their dolls are turning out! BEAUTIFUL!!! These paints are the best I have ever used!! I highly recommend these for realistic reborning or restoring vintage dolls as well. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (4) Reply 19 of 19 people found the following review helpful Very easy to use, September 16, 2011 By 3 dog mom – Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
