I am currently working on a painted head. It is almost as time consuming as rooting hair! However, the results are worth the effort if you go about it painting one hair at a time, giving the baby a more realistic looking head of hair. I think I will add a few more layers and make it a bit darker. I have used dark brown, making my paint mixture a little darker with each time around to give the hair a little depth. I am going to add several more layers using a thick texture medium and making my paint a little darker.
