well, ... sort of.... guess we'll see when I get around to trying to use some for my next dolly.
I've been looking for some eyes without the whites.... and there don't seem to be many out there. Or... maybe I haven't quite figured out yet how to track them down. They must be out there ...somewhere...
Two doll making buddies did share their sites ...but, while I am looking... I also decided ...perhaps I can make some of my own.
My first simple attempts.... just colouring with pencil crayons... on water colour paper. Wetting it down a bit. Adding a pupil with a Pigma pen.
Then...using Glossy Accents.... dropping on some gloss. The first few I did a couple of separate applications. Began just covering the colour with a thin coating. Then... after it has completely dried... at least 24 hours to make sure...added a second drop and on one set of eyes...a third layer.
You can see on the middle set of eyes.... they are getting progressively higher ... I was thinking to make them about as bumped up as the left eye.... but, you can also see that my blobs are not perfectly done on top of the other layer of gloss.
At first the Glossy Accents looks cloudy and murky...and seems to magnify the size of the pupil...but, when dry... it's clear and glossy and the pupil looks exactly the size I made it in the first place.
I like this stuff for several different things. Some of you may remember I used it for the glass on my white rabbit's watch.
Just to demonstrate...the middle pair and also the lower right...have just recently been dolloped on. Still cloudy looking 'til they dry. Also, the eyes on the lower right I tried using only one single large drop instead of several layers ...a large, slow drop .. to keep it from overflowing the outside edge of my colour and also so that I don't have to try to keep it exactly on top of the first layer.. ...we'll see how it dries. Seems to be staying in position at the moment. I don't think it will spread out now... but, we'll see. If so...that's definitely the way to go with my experimental eyes. One good drop.
My next trick will be to learn how to cut around them perfectly...or see if I can find a punch that can punch them out without ruining them..or without hiding them in a portion of the punch from whence it cannot be retrieved! lol....
Here's looking at you, kid! Ack...scary eyeball ! ... big pupil... totally distorted til it dries... hahahha....
