Why did my cheeks fade out?

Painting Problems

Faded out check color? There could be several different reasons. Reds tend to burn off when fired, so you need to try putting it on a little darker. Too much flux mixed into the paint will also cause the color to be lighter. One of my biggest problems was too much area medium on the cheek, causing the red to burn off, leaving the cheeks a little blotchy. You can redo the blush. Blushing should be saved for the last area to be painted to avoid color fading by repeated firing.
