Crimson Chimera

Just a couple of ladies with a collection of ABJDs that we want to spoil rotten. Rikka likes to sew and makes clothing for the kids, while Sylvyr does aesthetics and mods.

I often see BJD hobbyists state that the only reason their faceups suck is because they can’t afford quality art supplies. As someone who’d spent years in art training, I cannot overemphasize the importance of quality tools, materials and supplies for arts and crafts, however, it is simply a misconception that one can’t find quality materials at a low price.

Below is a list I compiled of a basic professional grade art supplies to begin painting your own dolls, all around $100. I could reduce it to under $50 by buying single sticks of pastel and single pencils instead of a set, since you’re supposed to mix your pigments, and all you really need is basic seven colors. The only thing you should never compromise on is MSC.


CyberStyle 15pcs Nail Art Brush Dotting Drawing Tool Set - $3.99


Sanford Prismacolor Watercolor Pencil Set, 24-Pack - $25.47

Liquitex BASICS Acrylic Paint Tube 24-Piece Set - $22.73

Rembrandt Soft Pastels Cardboard Box Set of 18 sticks - $18.99

Liquitex Professional Gloss Fluid, Medium and Varnish - $9.14


Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Cleaner Cleaning Pads
- $3.47

Sanford Design Kneaded Eraser - $3.45


Mr. Super Clear - $15.34

I presume any household has Sandpaper, Rubbing (Isopropyl) Alcohol, Q-Tips and cotton facial discs to wipe acrylic paint.

You may also want to invest into a greater variety of brushes, but this is good enough for a beginner. Now go and paint that face!


Yae and I are having Mori-feels.


We Remember

My grandpa passed away today, Good Friday. As I remember him, these two remember their own losses and comfort each other as well.

This is for anyone who has lost someone dear to them. May we remember these people and be grateful for their lives, and the time we had with them.

Also working on the AoT commission tonight. The details on this jacket still terrify me in this scale but we’re going to do this. XD
