https://flic.kr/p/HWBVhK | Ever After High Repaint! | After much avoidance I finally pushed myself to do a full doll repaint. Meaning I painted the eyes rather than cut eye holes for glass eyes. It was a bit difficult but not enough to deter me from doing it again! She doesn't have a name yet, wonder what it should be?
Shock, lock, & barrel masks from the nightmare before Christmas... 1st: make desired shape with foil. Then cover whole thing with masking tape. Cut out holes for eyes and add extra tape around eye holes. 2nd: Paper mache front and back of masks. (I did three layers on each mask.) Once it fully dries, paint all masks white. 3rd: Paint each mask it's rightful color & add details. & now it's complete!
This is by far the most realistic looking picture I have seen yet creating the illusion of a missing eye. You can really see the depth and darkness of the hole, and the blood trickling down her face just completely brings the whole image together.
