How to Make Lovely Light-Catching Doll Eyes by Unpredictabloo How to Make Lovely Light-Catching Doll Eyes by Unpredictabloo
Whelp... here you go! Thought this might be useful for some sculptors out there. I'm using the eyes for a bjd I'm making, but of course this can be adapted to fit other purposes as well.

I'm reaaallly sorry that the quality of the tutorial itself isn't that great... my computer isn't working and I don't want to go downloading programs on my little brother's computer which I borrowed/stole for the time being, so I had to do this all in Paint. Igh. Paint. It kills every could-be-decent picture it touches.

(P.S! If you make eyes using this method, you should link me! I'd be glad to see! :D)

These are amazing. I've been wanting to make a bjd for a while now, but I couldn't find any eyes I liked/where the right size/etc.
Guess I'll have to make a doll now :eager: by darkmoon3636

Yes, it's right before the resin. I just used a tiny tool to dot black paint in the center :) I'm glad you found it useful!

The needle files? I don't know :/ Sandpaper may work if you have a lot of patience.

Thank you so much for posting this, I know it took a lot of work and I am getting close to needing to make the eyes for my doll. Your tutorial is most helpful. May I ask why the paint cannot be water-soluble? Does the resin interfere with it?
Reply
:iconunpredictabloo:
Unpredictabloo Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2013  Student General Artist
I've never tried water-soluble paints with the resin personally, but the resin tutorials I've seen advise against it and I know that if the resin is applied over wet paint it tends to bleed, so I thought I'd be on the safe side and warn people. Acrylic paint and such is fine once it's dry though, even if it's soluble in water when wet!

Glad you found it helpful! :D
