because my flist knows all...  
Question for anyone on my flist who does doll customising--do Sakura gel glitter pens work for lip augments? Or does the ink bleed into the vinyl, even if you seal the entire face with matte sealant before you begin?

I have liquitex opal, but they didn't have a bronze/orange glitter paint. So I'm wondering if I seal the entire face with matte acrylic seal before I start and then use the Sakura gel pen over the factory paint, let it dry overnight, then seal it again with gloss varnish, it might work.

eta: I'm mostly concerned with the ink bleeding into the vinyl over time. I did a test on a random doll head I've been using for practice, and am going to let it sit for a week, to see

Let me know how it works out. I've never used sealant like that so it *might* work. I have also used pearlescent acrylics over a base colour -- if you do it in a very very light coat, the white ones are usually translucent and make the undercoat glittery/pearly.

I've got a test going... I'll seal it tomorrow, and then wait and see if the ink bleeds into the vinyl over time.
