Color match for Brazilian Rainbow Pony
« on: March 14, 2018, 01:02:42 AM »
Hello all,

I got a brazilian Parasol (shy version) as a surprise gift and the poor girl has a bad hair cut. But she's beautiful otherwise!
I thought about rehairing her, but I would by no means want to ruin or alter her color scheme with that beautiful, orangish red and that kind, warm green. Is there a color match known for brazilian rainbow ponies?

I checked the dollyhair site as well as the hair I still have her for comparison and the blue and yellow is Atomic Turquoise and Lemonade. The green is very close to Restoredoll's Evergreen but I would like to find a nylon color and do not want to mix. Spring Meadow might be closest, but I've never seen that in person. I had the same problem lately when I tried to find italian Medley's green. It's a lighter and warmer green than US Medley's.

For the red, nectarine is close but not a real match; it's still to orange for that. I also thought about sun fading hair before using it but even then there must be a matching hue to begin with. Candy Apple, perhaps? That would have to fade a lot...

This is as far as I've come, anyone experienced here? Or any further ideas?

I will check for you tomorrow :)

I have a feeling it is Spring Meadow that’s a close match and that the red/pink is a colour you’d least expect (either Strawberry Moose or Dusty Rose from memory.

I owe you an email too :hug:

ETA.

I had a look at my hair colours and compared them with my Brazil Starshine I found the following colours to be the closest match: Strawberry Mousse, Lemonade, Spring Meadow and Water Nixie :)

Will have a look into it, I might well have a hank of Strawberry Mousse still hiding somewhere. Thanks a lot! :D
Looking forward to your email also. :hug:

Always happy to help :)

Matching nirvana hair is always tricky, I'm sure Parasol will be happy to have a mane and tail again.

I checked back and unfortunately, Strawberry Mousse is not the match to that part of her hair, as it strongly leans towards pink while the color needed would be more of an orange. Dusty rose is more close, but still lacks that orange hue... I might try fading half a hank of Firebird all summer long, then see if I get a match from that. Also perhaps mixing colours would be an option?
Response to your email coming soon! :)

I checked against my Brazil Starshine, it is possible she is either faded or has slightly different coloured hair. It has been noticed there are two types of neon red hair, so it wouldn't surprise me if the pinks were different too.

If you can't find a match I would suggest dying some :) I have had great success using Rit dye to dye nylon hair :)

I see... I have several colors of RIT lying arould since years because I wanted to try but I'm afraid I didn't have the courage to actually do that yet. Will keep it in mind though. I am so overly sensitive to color tones, I percieve even the slightest difference and I think it's because of that, the chance of failure if I try is just so damn high.  >_<

I know what you mean, I'm sensitive to colours as well, just one shade out can be really frustrating.
