ARTIST WINS AWARD FOR DOLL PAINTED WITH LUMINAIRE
Luminaire wishes to congratulate Janelle Marie on being chosen as the Reborn Artist of Distinction (RAD) Featured Artist for November 2012. Janelle's doll began as a Kendall Sculpt by Stephanie Sullivan. Janelle combined her own special artistic technique's with Luminiare and captured Best Presentation, Most Realistic, Best Complexion, and Best Hands and Feet Detail! Here is what Janelle had to say about her experience with Luminaire:
"My name is Janelle Marie, and I am the sole artist behind Blessed Bundles Nursery. I am a Full Time Reborn Artist, as well as a Stay at Home Mother, with 2 of my own Blessed Bundles! My children are now school- age, and I find that I have some free time to indulge my artistic side! I am Blessed to be able to apply my passion for painting and my meticulous attention to detail to these little Bundles!
I use only high quality products and a painstaking, multi-layering technique, using Luminaire Reborn Paints, to bring you a Baby that you can love and cherish for many years to come! Each Baby is created from a OOAK Hand -Blended Pallet, Customized Specifically for that Baby! It takes weeks to produce an Infant that will encapture you each time you pass! I strive for a natural, healthy looking Baby!
I am an Advanced RAD Artist and Member of the RAD Forum, (Reborn Artists of Distinction).
I am an avid user of Luminaire ! I love the freedom of being able to combine the Luminaire colors with the Colormate colors-I have such an array of shades to combine and recombine...the possibilities are endless!
I have to say, I was skeptical at first...but you can't argue with results! I have a couple of exclusive methods and techniques that I use in applying my base tones and color correcting the vinyl... otherwise, I use luminaire exclusively!
I apply thin layers,....so it actually tints the vinyl, rather than paint sitting on top of it . The results are depth and the illusion of texture, and they are worth it!
I exclusively paint vinyl reborn kits, however, I have used Lminaire (undilluted) on a restored composite doll and it worked beautifully!!
I have had customers return 3x over for dolls- saying that mine are so smooth, and soft, and have such an amazing depth of color and tone-some have even bought Luminaire to try for themselves!"
Janelle's work is a wonderful example of the way that Luminaire is intended to be used and protrays the vision that created Luminaire. We are thrilled to congratulate her on her artistic achievement and being chosen as a RAD Featured Artist! You may find out more about Janelle at her website http://blessedbundlesnursery.webs.com/
