I don’t know how many dolls you have at home but I saw this phenomenon among my Barbie dolls. I have a Jewel Hair Mermaid Teresa at home nrfb and for some time I observe that her lips started to bleed out even in nrfb condition.
I think I could fix it when I take her out of the box but I don’t want to do it. I heard from another collector that this could have been caused by Cadmium in the paint itself. I recommend you when you repaint dolls – avoid Cadmium in paint. No good, seems to be the material to bleed.
How to solve the problem doing repaints?
In the last years the industry obviously worked on the problems of bleeding. There are for example now some red tones from Liquitex that are free of Cadmium. So when you don’t paint it on the dolls, it can’t start to bleed, right?
How to deal with little paint jars with a cap you simply can’t get open
So and when we talk about paint here at the moment I had the problem recently that I wanted to use some of my little jars filled with paint but the caps were stuck. Man, this really left some blisters on my thumb. It’s very unpleasant to have such a situation. Nevertheless I found a very easy solution in the model making corner.
It’s always good to a pair ( or two) of pipe tongs at home. They come in very handy when you have small jars with the cap problem.
I know I haven’t written a blog post for almost one month. I can calm you down my new PC has arrived in the meantime and it’s running like it should but I’m still installing add-ons and therefore there is a little delay with my videos.
Don’t worry there will be new videos in the next weeks but the installation of the add-ons lasted longer than planned. So I often sat in the evenings in front of my PC instead of any TV.
I must say I’m satisfied with my new PC but I have not used it very much since I have not cut much videos in the last weeks. I hope to change it in the next days but now that everything is running smoothly. It’s a custom design PC. I chose a shop that offers to build your own custom PC. During the assembly they realized the power supply was not compatible with the other compounds I had choosen so they asked me and they changed it to fit to the PC for free. At the end I got a better power supply than I ordered, … little error in the shop but as long as I don’t have any costs … no problem. The case of my new PC had almost one month of delivery time although we ordered it before May, 15th.
My new PC arrived at my apartment on June, 5th 2021 and I installed the whole Windows 10 stuff the same evening but the other programms I wanted to install had to wait at least a day. So I used the time after my working hours to install the needed programms one after another. It’s not a huge amount of programms but sometimes you see it just when you need it and then it’s missing.
That’s what happened several times but now everything is running and my working hours after work are hopefully more effective than in the last weeks. I have a ton of ideas what to do in the next weeks and months but this time the technique will hopefully work. I still have some add-ons that I want to install in the next days but then there will be hopefully more time again. These add-ons are very small and I hope that the amount of time that I need is not very huge.
I wasn’t able to fix the Windows update problem on my old PC until now but when you come back in a few days I hope that I can show it to you. Maybe you have the same problem?
