:eeek: Blush rubs really ruin a pony for me - I hate them! Anyone figure out an easy way to fix them? :wink: LOL or a hard way? Waiting to hear I have to buy an air brush. I just found a Princess Sparkle that I would love to fix up for myself and she looks so sad :cry: with the blush rub.

Thanks bunches!

**** Well here she is groomed. I nearly left her because of her hair being so bad, but by using a curling iron with conditioner and then perm rods and setting the hair in boiling water, I think she looks pretty nice. Also had to remove a few spots with pimple cream/sunshine. I tried a few of the blush techniques but I wasn't happy with how they looked so for now I'll leave it alone (the rub was on the other side and not super bad). Thanks for the tips!

lol.. well.. uh.. I kinda cheat.


Colorific Walmart GEL MARKERS..

use the pink one, draw blush, leave for 15 seconds and wash off with water and a soft towel.

Stains lightly.. I don't remember which I tested it on, so I can't tell you about all colors.

try to find a more reliable method for that one though, lol..

I have read that some people use actual blush and a q-tip to apply it. Then rub off the excess after a while.

I'd think you could just dry brush it on with an acrylic paint... dip the brush in paint, then brush off most of it on scrap paper. then just brush the cheeks of the pony lightly until they're dark enough. That's how you do it for ceramics, anyway :).

Ugh, blush rubs are a pain to fix. I'm not a big fan of blush, so I usually just leave them alone or take the blush off completely.

Bumping for photo Edit & thank you.

Aikarin - Your customes are :shock: amazing! May I ask what paints you use? I'm making a gift for someone and I'm having a hard time with the white paint and the base dye from the body bleeding though when I use it to paint the symbol. I also find that I really see the brush strokes which I'm not happy with. Maybe my paint quality is not good enough. Thanks (p.s. I understand if you don't want to share that info & won't take offense)

:eek: Love the hair on Princess Sparkle. She looks incredible. I think I'll try and spruce my PS up too now. She also has some blush rubs (sadly). Mine are quite severe. PS has a great pose doesn't she. Is it the same as Mimic's pose?

I read somewhere that a girl will use pink acrylic paint and water it down, then applies it in soft swirls with a q-tip. I've never tried it myself, so I can't vouch for it, but you might want to try that.

I've never had a pony that had a blush rub so bad that I wanted to fix it. I would suggest the tip that Cardinal Melody gave, though. Seems the safest. You don't want to use something TOO dark or too permanent. You can always add, but you can never take away! :)

Yes it is...I just never realized it...

It's nice to "save" a pony from the flea market, and clean them up! I'm gonna sound crazy :lol: but it's almost like they smile at you when you clean them up...like they are happy they are not all dirty and in a junk pile anymore! Thanks again for the tips everone.

Man someone's gonna call a shrink if I keep talking like this! LOL!
