First Impression Baby Mold

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

For those who have made these cute babies before. I want to know how exactly did you go about coloring the hair. Thank you for your help in advance.

I use food colouring diluted with clear alcohol and then paint on.

I just made one, and did the same thing.  I just made sure my brush wasn't too wet...after dipping it in the colour and vodka mix, I gave it a couple of quick swipes on a paper towel before painting.  You don't want too much liquid on the gumpaste (or fondant...whatever you choose to use).  Also, I waited until the baby was fairly hard before painting.  I don't know if that is necessary, but it made sense to me for some reason.

 

After the colour dried, I went over it again with a very dry brush and some more colour to give the hair some depth.

 

It was my first one and I'm quite pleased with it.

Hi.  I use flesh colored dust, great for definition of the crease areas and the hair. Dilute with vodka if you want a darker color.  Turns out great.  If you have the baby laying on it's tummy, does your's have a fault in the left foot (hollow spot)? I questioned the fault and the company said it wasn't a defect as this is how the master mold is!!  I have seen others with the same problem. 

 

The babies are so darn cute.

People love them and order them all the time, but I think they're just creepy.

At work we call them dead babies

Lol I don't think they're creepy. I like how realistic they look.

I think they are realistic and very adorable. Not creepy at all.

I don't think they're creepy. I brush the powder color on dry.

I use dry dusts. For dark hair, I use cocoa powder.

 

I think they're a bit weird if you eat them... but if that's what the customer wants, that's what they get!
