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?

Actually I planned on getting Removezit from Twin Pines of Maine... I should do that now that I have funds in my Paypal. Thanks for jogging my memory. :)

Your plan sounds like a good one...as long as there is a layer of sealant between the plastic and the ink, there should be minimal if any bleed-thru.

The main issue with the gel pens I'm discovering is that it flakes off really easily. I'm experimenting with gloss varnish over it, but I worry it's on too thick and won't dry :(

When you say "on too thick" do you mean the gel pen or the varnish?

And have you thought about mixing the gel pan stuff with varnish? If you could get enough of it out of the pen, I mean.

The varnish.

Part of the issue with lip repaints is control. I have more control with the pen than I do a brush, which is why I'm giving the pens a try...
