Free Online tutorials: Please Add Your Favorites

Post by PrissyMayDolls*Vanessa » Fri Apr 15, 2005 3:51 pm

List here any information on free online tutorials please.

I have a free online tutorial:

Please share it with others--but it must be the link above as it has the terms of usage listed.

Also, if you have a website and want to add it to the links plage, that's fine--but please just drop me a quick line and let me know and use the above link only. :D


Also, if there is someone out there that may like to help me get it a little more "complete" please let me know. Or if you have some techniques that you'd like to share and would like to add then let me know and I'll add them and give credit.

I also have a "boo-bbo and redo's section that could use some more helpful tips and hints--I find this very useful!!!!!

As long as I can keep it free I will continue to offer it. But, it is in dire need of some updates.

Also, I haven't started working with any of the silicone/vinyl mixes (have two here--just staring at me lol)--so if you'd like to help me get a section up for those types let me know.......

I took about the whole first year I was learning to reborn looking for tutorials. I still have many of them saved, though I don't look at them as much as I used to. Please respect the kind ladies who have taken the time to write these tutorials, and don't use the info from these on any other material without their permission :wink: : ... rning.html

On this one, look to the left and you will see many titles that go to tutorials:

I think that is about it. :shock: I will post more if I find any. :shock:

Does anyone know of one?
Or could someone start one?

Jude, maybe I don't fully understand what you are asking, but if you are talking about free online tutorials, all the sites listed here are free. :wink:

What I mean is a picture by picture tutorial of a SM silicone/vinyl,
or an AD, especially Charlie-I love his body, just would like pictures
of taking off head, weighing, rooting, not putting soft body on.
The picture by picture part is the really pie in the sky aspect of it.
I haven't done any yet.
Call me slow, I am undergoing cancer treatments, and was waiting
until I retired at the end of the year.
Ladies out there, demand a CA 125 Ovarian blood test at your physical.
I get them constantly now that I have it.
It is not approved yet because it is not 100%, only 96.6 or something.
Sorry, off track-
They give it to men for prostate-not any more accurate.
This forum and others and ebay take my mind off of it.
I am not afraid - it is one of life's little surprises.
I think I am in at least 2 different forums here. Sorry

Well, I don't know of any free picture tutorials for the silicone vinyl, but if you plan to continue to reborn, Simply Reborn has a great tutorial for the silicone vinyl dolls. They also have their regular reborning tutorials. You can order here, and once you pay the $45 you won't have to pay any more money for each month or re-register. ... =WDVW&rd=1

Anyone have a tutorial on how to paint a/a skin tones? Brook Nicole gave me step by step details and I lost it on my old hard drive. :x I could kick myself for not backing that up.
