Blythe question
« on: March 13, 2018, 07:17:03 AM »
Hi.

I have a blythe doll that someone attempted to repaint with what looks like acrylics, nail polish, and possibly pastels. They then sealed it with mr. Super clear. So, my question is, can I remove all of this with nail polish remover (like mh, pullip, etc?)?
I am now taking commisions for Custom dolls, ponies, handmade ponywear and doll clothes, and handmade pet hooded coats!

I do believe that Blythe heads are made from ABS plastic just like Pullips, so you should be able to use the same methods for face-up removal that are used on Pullip dolls (i.e.: acetone-free nail polish remover and fine grain sandpaper for stubborn areas). 

But I agree with snowblossom.  It might be best to look up a few Youtube tutorials on Blythe face-up removal to make sure.  They are made of a different material than MH heads, so there are some products that you would normally use on an MH doll that cannot be used on Blythe and Pullip dolls.

You can't remove the faceup with acetone. you need to sand down the surface. I have some tutorial videos on youtube. Check out them if you want to know more about the customization process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evCCSLQYrsM&list=PLVfuZ3Mw02JrPb1__btGyJLpYe4kgu40E
