TipsUse water-based paint and products such as Acrylic paint
when decorating your munny, vinyl can have interactions with chemicals in enamel paint, spray paint, and some other oil based mediums causing your munny to have a sticky tacky feeling that doesn't go away even after it has had plenty of time to dry. Other mediums can be used but a primer needs to be used.. (and even so it can still have some tacky issues.)
Wash your munny
when you get it out of the box with water, just in case there is any mold release left on the doll that may interact with the paint.
If possible prime your munny.
I can not offer any suggestions on primers, because I personally don't find them necessary, but it is recommended that you use them, especially if you are using anything other than acrylic paints.
Use a varnish to finish your munny.
This protects your paint job from damage, UV rays and helps to make cleaning them easier. I use Liquitex brush on varnish, because I know it is water based and will have no adverse interactions with the vinyl. I have matte, satin and high gloss varnishes that I alternate depending on which effect I want when finished. Some mediums will run with the application of varnish so if using anything other than acrylics make sure you test it out on something before applying it to your finished munny.
Change things up with super sculpey
You can use polymer clay (bake clay) directly on the vinyl. If possible disassemble your figure before you bake it in your oven to prevent the vinyl from sticking. (there is a slim risk of sticking) after baked you can sand any rough edges smooth.
