Jawn comments, "I'm really curious what became of your acetone Cleo head and such. I'm debating on shrinking an Ever After High head cuz they're so big but I dunno if the hard/huge amounts of glue in the scalp would affect it terribly or not..."
Jawn, I left Cleo in acetone for 7 straight days. Why? Just wanted to see what would happen really. But, it was rather unnecessary, because she didn't shrink anymore than if I would have left her in for 2 days. Oh well, now I know, lol. Here's what she looks like:
While there was no loss of facial screening, there was a color change. The salmon coloring around her eyes turned to yellow. She also lost her gloss layer, making her eyes and lips matte. I don't mind it, but if anyone does, they can always apply a layer of matte varnish to make them shine again. I'm attributing this shine loss to being in the solution for too long because it only happens slightly when in for 2 days or less. Another effect was that her bangs got longer because her face got smaller.
Here she models her new Fashionista body and the Walgreen's acetone I used. I don't know if it was the cold weather (I had only head shrunk in warm weather before) or because I left her in the solution for so long, but it took 14 days for her head to start to harden and another 10 before it finally shrunk to where it is now. If you want to double dip I'd wait until the hardening starts. You should also rinse out any glue in the hair before you even start or it will gunk up in the solution.
Comparison to her old body
Bangs to the side. She likes her bigger boobies.
As for Ever After High, I've started that process and round 1 has been completed. I dipped her for 36 hours and her head ballooned up a whole 1/2 inch! After drying for 2 days, so far she has just reduced back to her original size and is as soft and malleable as when I put her in. If she ever starts to harden I'll give her a round 2 and see what happens. This one might take a looooong while.
Any other questions, let me know. Good luck to you!
