Guide to Repaint a Monster High doll

Repainting a Monster High doll, such as Draculaura, involves several steps. Here's a general guide to help you get started on repainting or customizing a Monster High doll:

Materials Needed:

  1. Monster High Doll (Draculaura)
  2. Acetone or Nail Polish Remover
  3. Mr. Super Clear Sealant or MSC
  4. Watercolor Pencils or Soft Pastels
  5. Fine Paintbrushes
  6. Sealant Spray (optional)
  7. Acrylic Paints
  8. Water Cup and Paper Towels
  9. Sealant Varnish (optional)


  1. Prepare Your Workspace:

    • Lay down newspaper or a protective surface to avoid staining your work area.
  2. Remove the Original Face:

    • Use acetone or nail polish remover to gently wipe off the factory face paint. Be careful not to damage the vinyl.
  3. Seal the Doll:

    • Spray the doll with Mr. Super Clear (MSC) to provide a smooth surface for the new face.
  4. Sketch the New Face:

    • Use watercolor pencils or soft pastels to sketch the desired features. This step allows you to plan the design before using permanent paints.
  5. Painting:

    • Use fine paintbrushes and acrylic paints to bring your design to life. Take your time and work in layers for better results.
  6. Detailing:

    • Add details such as eyes, eyebrows, lips, and any other features you desire. Precision is key, so use a steady hand.
  7. Sealing the Paint:

    • Once satisfied with your work, seal the face with another layer of MSC. This helps protect the paint and prevents it from chipping.
  8. Optional Sealant Varnish:

    • If you want extra protection, you can apply a sealant varnish after the MSC has dried. This step is optional but can add durability.
  9. Let it Dry:

    • Allow the doll to thoroughly dry before handling or redressing.
  10. Reassemble:

  • Once the doll is completely dry, you can reassemble it and, if desired, change the outfit or hairstyle.
