I have come across people doing the OOAK Barbies. Anyone know how they are doing this. What type of paint do they use and how they do the hair plugs? Any websites on this. I am interested in learning to do this.
Any help is appreciated.

I've been making some, it's quite fun, we use polymer clay (prosculpt works really well) I just glue the hair to the head or reclay the top of the head after the first baking and apply it on the fresh clay then bake again, and for paint I use paint medium and acrylic burgundy or magenta paint for blushing and I put it on, then blot off with a kleenex and keep doing that till it's the right shade. Hope I helped!
Many Hugs~
