    Default How to make your own creepy baby doll?

    How do I make my own zombie baby or whatever kind of baby I want? I'm sure I cannot just use any old paint. What do I need to use and do so it looks good and paint doesn't just peal right off? Any help would be much appreciated.

    you use paint designed for plastic. They make it in spray paint and regular brush on. After you paint, you could also clear coat over it to make sure its sealed and wont peel (also provides some weather proofing). Then you can dismember and glue and do whatever the heck ya want to it. Personal favorite of mine is to rip the arms and legs off and sew them back on but really sloppy and then put red LED's in the eyes. Sounds morbid now that I say it out loud haha

    Funny you just posted this. I had an idea last month for a "creepy baby" and just won an old doll head with open/close eyes on ebay. I plan to add red LEDs to the eyes and control the lids with a servo. I'm going to build the body so her head can turn and one arm raise. She'll be sitting in a "self-rocking" chair. I'll post pics as I go.

    There's a thread on the board somewhere, in the craft section I think, with a whole thread about dolls...wait...found it!

    Doll makeovers

    I have a couple pics in there of the 2 I've done. I got my dolls at Dollar Tree but they don't seem to carry them anymore. Or maybe just the one closest to me doesn't carry them anymore. Whatever, I can just go down the strip mall to Big Lots & get one for a few $ more. It just sucks since it's hard to beat $1 for a doll you're going to paint & take apart.

    I am making a zombie wonderland for my haunt this year by request of my volunteers. I will do a zombie house/hospital inside the three car garage, the zombie band will be on the front deck singing Zombie Jamboree and the back yard walk through will have a zombie gardener, zombie coming out of a mausoleum, zombie barbeque and maybe a few more ideas. One of the rooms in the garage will have not just the zombie child's room but the zombie dolls will have the night light eyes for effect. To paint the zombie dolls, you must first clean them well. A little mineral spirits or rubbing (not drinking) alcohol will do the trick. To make the paint even I will use one of my $5 Harbor Freight air brushes to make the white base coat. I already have volunteers to paint the zombie dolls after the base coat is on. I will print out some pics of the zombie dolls from the Spirit Store and other websites for them to copy or give them ideas. I will apply a shellac or lacquer finish when the dolls are done.
