This is how my new doll has turned out after adding colors and hair.
This time I decided to paint the eyes of the doll, and then adding a thin layer of resin for shine.

If you remember my previous polymer clay doll – the princess- I had used Sculpey translucent liquid for her eyes, following a tutorial on YouTube. They worked fine but the problem was that Sculpey translucent liquid never becomes transparent enough to create glass like eyes.
I searched a lot on internet and discovered that it isn’t actually the proper material to use for creating eyes. They say Fimo liquid works better, but resins do the perfect job!
So I ordered a small bottle of Lisa Pavelka magic gloss which is a UV resin, won’t tell how much it took to travel from US to arrive here.
I tried making eyes using this wonderful resin, but it continued to be very difficult getting both eyes identical. So I decided to paint them this time, and see if it works better.
The answer was yes! It definitely worked better and I used the wonderful resin on the colored (with acrylic colors) eyes to give the necessary shine to it.
I glued the dark brown mohair to her head to create her hair.
Now I should add the varnish to seal the colors.
Well, there are other difficulties to deal with, I’ll let you know in my next post which varnish I use and how I got very different results with the same varnish on my previous dolls!
Hope you liked this post. 🙂
