    The following are the skin colors offered by Pygmalion.

    There are 4 types: White, Warm Ivory (formally Normal), Sand Beige, Tan.

    The colors may vary depending on your display settings and lighting.

    In preparation for yellowing, we added a bit more redness to the colors.


     





    Sand beige and Tan colors can be more finicky and require more care in production.

    Color marbling or splotches may occur during production and are prone to bleaching (color lightening) around sanded parts ? thus seam removal areas may experience some bleaching. Also, skin color may vary between parts and/or between dolls with different production cycles.



    IYH models have thin areas in parts that are prone to air bubbles. We may forego sanding to eliminate dust particles or air bubbles since individual parts are so small, sanding might prevent parts from joining seamlessly or have detrimental effects in aesthetic. As a result, smaller dust particles may not be removed and we do not provide seam removal for these models.


    We do not consider obvious dust particles or air bubbles damages in areas that aren’t usually exposed (joints, inside heads, inside parts). Dust particles anywhere on the face are considered a defect but those located on the ear and/or beyond the chin are not. Air bubbles located on finger tips are considered as a defect whereas dust particles, similarly to those on the body, are non-defects.


    Areas sanded (esthetized) might have a different texture and might have less noticeable fine scratches.





    Examples of defects and non-defects:


    This is a non-defect since the air bubble is small and not a delicate part.



    This is a non-defect since the air bubble is small and on an area not usually exposed.



    This is a non-defect although the dent is noticeable it is on an area not usually exposed within normal range of motion.

     


    This is a non-defect although the air bubbles are noticeable they are on an area not usually exposed within normal range of motion.




      Notice the large air bubbles on top of the thigh parts. As is, those would be considered defective parts but normally we will fill the gaps and esthetize the area for uniformity. The dust particles located mid-thigh are defects though they are less noticeable when photographed. Dust particles that are less noticeable as suggested in the pictures would be non-defects (those would be practically invisible when photographed).


    The 2 dust particles circled are not visible to the naked eye and thus are non-defects.


    The above only applies to White / Warm Ivory skin tones and do not apply to Sand Beige / Tan skins.



    It is considered a defect if a Sand Beige / Tan body contains air bubbles and/or dust particles located on the face or décolletage

    (neck, shoulder, upper chest ? areas exposed when wearing a shirt).

    Even obvious air bubbles and/or dust particles are not considered defects everywhere else.

    Notice the 2 dust particles circled. In darker skin tones the lower dust particle is not clearly visible, thus only the higher dust particle is considered a defect.

    For lighter White / Warm Ivory skin colors, both would be considered defects.


     

    The area circled in the 2 pictures above shows an uneven area (looks like a trail of liquid) that are unnoticeable if not directly pointed out.

    These areas are not considered defects and can be fixed easily with sanding or a coat of MSC.




    After esthetizing (sanding to make surface uniform and smooth) the area will be lighter.



    This becomes less obvious when oil or Vaseline is applied. Marks that persist are unavoidable in all resin with color added.




     

    There may be parts that do not interlock perfectly even though we produce a perfect prototype due to the process of shrinking during casting with silicone molds and resin.

    We try to minimize this by adding silicone to the interior of joints. However, there still might be gaps and protrusion of extra silicone. These are not considered to be defects.


    We take utmost care and do everything we can to prevent air bubbles and/or dust particles.

    However, perfection is impossible since everything is done manually.

    Just like how every human being is perfect because of their imperfections, we would appreciate if you can consider dust particles or air bubbles as adding to each doll’s uniqueness.

    We will try our best to strive towards perfection.
